Track Listing

  1. French Kiss
  2. Girlfriend
  3. French Kiss (Instrumental)
  4. Girlfriend (Instrumental)

1. French Kiss

Seems strange that we’re getting ANOTHER winter song (because “Winter Magic” wasn’t enough).  French Kiss does seem a bit more lively of a song as stands as this kind of cute, poppy track.  Amongst their other songs they have out though, this felt slightly weaker than normal, almost more generic than anything in the “FANTASTIC GIRLS” era…so it really didn’t leave an impression on me.

2. Girlfriend

At least the B-side has a little more oomph to it.  Girlfriend kind of has this R&B sound to it that the group doesn’t do too much and I quite enjoy that a lot about the song.  The ladies sound really nice and kind of sound like they’re just having fun in the tune.

 

 

KARA releases a single to coincide with their best album, “BEST GIRLS” and French Kiss is kind of a weaker single.  I really didn’t think much of the leading track and doesn’t scream A-side unlike Girlfriend which sounded different.  With the group shifting with Nicole leaving and Ji Young contemplating to stay, it’ll be interesting how the group’s dynamic will be IF they continue to release in Japan.
