    Girlfriend The 4th Mini Album [THE AWAKENING] (The 4th Mini Album)

    Girlfriend is back with their 4th mini album [THE AWAKENING]!

    Heart-shattering title track 'Fingertip' 5 consecutIVE box office hits!

    GFRIEND starts the second act! 'Growth', 'Transformation' presents various charms

    The trusted girl group 'GFRIEND' is making a comeback with their fourth mini album 'THE AWAKENING'.

    After successfully completing the school trilogy and their first full-length album, the group is starting the second act of their career and is expected to capture the hearts of the public once again with a more grown-up and renewed look.

    In particular, atTENtion is being focused on the new steps of Girlfriend, who proved themselves to be a national girl group in 2017 with various records such as perfect all-kill on the music charts of their previous albums, the title track of their first full-length album, "You and Me," which won 15 awards, "Running Through Time," which won 14 awards, and "We Are From Today," which became the first girl group to achieve 100 million streams.

    The title of their fourth mini-album, "THE AWAKENING," means "awareness," "awakening," and has an implied meaning of "waking up to love. If the previous albums talked about the identity of girlfriends within the framework of "girls' growth," expressing the cONFident love of girls who have just awakened to love, we would like to tell the love story of grown-up girls. The title song 'FINGERTIP', which will further solidify the identity and character of the girlfriend, and various other songs that will allow you to meet a more mature girlfriend will also delight the ears of music fans.

    [Album Review]

    1. wind song (Hear The Wind Sing)

    Composed & Lyrics & Arranged by Megatone, Ferdy / Drum Programing Ferdy / Bass Byungseok Kim / KeyBoArd Ferdy / Piano Byungseok Kim / Violin Sangwon Shim / Background Vocals by Jeon Jaehee / Recorded by Kwak Spirit, Jung Mo Yeon @VIBE Studio / Mixed by Cho C.A. @CUBE Studio

    'Song of the Wind' is a song that combines a deep house-based rhythm with a sensual violin performance and a lyrical melody characteristic of a girlfriend. The song compares the sound of the wind blowing to a 'wind song' and sings about the excitement of riding the wind and hoping to get closer and closer to the other person. With pretty lyrics like 'LisTEN to the song of the wind and let it hover in your ears' and a rhythmic melody that seems to symbolize the dance of the wind, you can imagine your girlfriend as a wind fairy.

    2. FINGERTIP

    Composed & Lyrics & Arranged by Lee, Yongbae / Drum Programing Seo, Yongbae / Bass Kim, Yeyeil / Guitar, Ryu, Hyunwoo / KeyBoArd & Synthesizer, Lee, Yongbae / Background Vocals by Kim, Sori / Recorded by Lee, Yongbae @OREO Studio Kwak, Jeong, Moyeon @Vibe Studio / Mixed by Cho, Assi, Jeong, Moyeon @CUBE Studio

    The title track of GFRIEND's fourth mini album, "FINGERTIP," was written by GFRIEND's producers, Lee Igi and Yongbae, and expresses the way girls love to be assertive and control their loved ones' hearts. It is a dance song that adds girlfriend-style rock sound to the funky disco genre, and the vocoder from the intro and the shoulder-shaking brass sound are impressive, and you can see the growth and new side of girlfriend that has never been shown before.

    'Awareness', 'Awakening', 'Lucid Dream', 'Lucid Dream'!

    The music video for "FINGERTIP" is directed by Hong Won-ki of Janibroth, the K-Pop music video mastermind behind the Girlfriend and School trilogy. Inspired by the album's name, THE AWAKENING, and with the motif of Lucid Dream, the music video is a sensational work that surpasses the school trilogy with a stunning production exclusIVEly for girlfriends.

    3. Contrail:飛行雲 (Contrail)

    Composed by Brian Choi, 220, Erik Lidbom / Lyrics by Mafly, KEYfly / Arranged by Brian Choi, 220 / Piano Brian Choi / Background Vocals by Kim Sori / Original Publisher ICONIC SOUNDS, HITFIRE PRODUCTION AB / Sub Publisher : NICHION, SonyATV, MUSICCUBE / Recorded by Kwak Spirit, Jung Mo Yeon @VIBE Studio / Mixed by Ethan Bradon @Iconic Studio

    Contrails is a fresh song with a ragtime piano riff and rhythmic interplay of vocals that beautifully expresses the love that spreads in the heart like clouds following an airplane in the sky. Especially, the melody of the whole song seems to represent the steps of chasing after the other person, so it's a fun song to lisTEN to while imagining.

    4. Please Save My Earth (Please Save My Earth)

    Composed & Lyrics & Arranged by Mio / Drum Programing Mio / Guitar Jung Jae-pil / Background Vocals by Kim Sori / Recorded by Kwak Hyung, Jung Mo-yeon @VIBE Studio / Mixed by Kwak Hyung @Vibe Studio

    This song features an emotional piano melody, colorful brass and strings, a lyrical melody that pierces through the rich sound, and the members' tender voices. It is a work by the singer-songwriter group Mio, which follows the fairytale sensibility of the previous work Mermaid with his girlfriend, and the fantasy lyrics are impressIVE, comparing the fateful love of two people who lIVE in different worlds but met through each other's worlds to the 'earth' and the 'moonlight' that always shines on the earth.

    5. Spring Rain (Rain In The Spring Time)

    Composed by Erik Lidbom, Sophia Pae, 220 / Lyrics by Mafly, KEYfly / Arranged by Erik Lidbom / Background Vocals by Kim Sori / Original Publisher : ICONIC SOUNDS, HITFIRE PRODUCTION AB / Sub Publisher : NICHION, SonyATV, MUSICCUBE / Recorded by Kwak Spirit, Jung Mo Yeon @VIBE Studio / Mixed by Kelvin Hobbs @Iconic Studio

    This song is an attractIVE song with a light and simple piano riff and a beautiful melody that expresses the feeling of spring rain, and especially in the chorus, the change of strings and rhythm that creates a dramatic feeling unique to girlfriends maximizes the atmosphere of the song. It is also a song that can bring back memories of 'you' that feels like a gentle spring rain.

    6. 핑 (Crush)

    Composed & Lyrics & Arranged by e.one / Guitar Jung Jae-pil / KEYborad Jung Ho-hyun / Background Vocals by Geumjo / Recorded by Kwak Spirit, Jung Mo-yeon @VIBE Studio / Mixed by Cho C.A. @CUBE Studio

    A song with a powerful identity of a girlfriend based on new jazz swing. The rhythmic melodic line, string sections, and the harmonization of the vocal line, which was upgraded to a higher level, expressed the feeling of the song well. The lyrics compare the feeling of unrequited first love to the delicate sensitivity of girls with tears in their eyes.
