INdependeNT GiRL? -remix-
Saturday Night -extended mix-
1. INdependeNt GiRL?
It’s been quite while since we’ve gotten from MiChi (minus the digital singles). I think the space between this and “THERAPY” has given some time for MiChi to have a little more fun with her music. INdependeNt GiRL? (back to that stickycaps huh?) is actually a quirky pop song from her and I found this sort of Western but also quite catchy to listen to. I also love the brass in the song too…like I said, the song has a pretty quirky feel and the chorus is nice!
2. Saturday Night
Though I think the star of the single belongs to the secondary A-side, Saturday Night because it has MiChi’s style alongside a slight disco feel. I just find myself dancing and having fun with this pretty flirty song. Plus this song is entirely in English so I’m really having a great time with this song!
3. INdependeNt GiRL? -remix-
For the first time in a long time, this single does not include a cover song. Instead we get a remix and an extended take of both A-sides. First is the remix for INdependeNt GiRL? and honestly, it felt like it just took out some of the backbone for the song and laid a bit more brass to make up for it. I don’t know, but the remix didn’t really do anything to boost that song any.
4. Saturday Night -extended mix-
Adding a minute to the song, the extended mix to Saturday Night has a different introduction taking the memorable line ~I’m on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday night~ and builds upon before MiChi kicks in with the verses. Luckily, the song goes back to is dance/disco vibes which is A.O.K. for me. Besides the new intro, there’s not really much else to be said since I’ve already talked about that.
Only being over a year since “THERAPY”, MiChi has returned with a physical single release and it seems like she’s sticking to more of her carefree nature with both songs. Granted, I’m a little surprised that this is the only single she’ll release before her 3rd major album, “EYES WIDE OPEN” simply because “THERAPY” had SO MANY singles. I will say I love Saturday Night so much more than INdependeNt GiRL? because I’m just in love with the lyrics! Though the other A-side isn’t bad either! The remix wasn’t all that great and the extension just added more awesomeness XD…so not bad!
