The new K-Pop group on the scene, Cravity have released their debut album, Cravity Season 1.
Within the first hour of their debut, 6 celebratory hashtags took up the worldwide trends on Twitter, including #STANCRAVITY. ‘HIDEOUT’ symbolizes the nine members stepping out into the world through an experience unique to them, and creating a safe haven where they can lean on each other.
Title track, “Break All The Rules,” tells the story of 9 youths with strong ambitions venturing out on their first journey together, overcoming obstacles, and continuing to move forward without hesitation; with hopes of providing solace for anyone going through the same emotions.
Inspiration behind the name, CRAVITY, came to fruition through the combination of “Creativity” and “Gravity.”
Starship Entertainment’s latest boy band (the last being Monsta X). Consists of nine members, [Serim, Allen, Jungmo, Woobin, Wonjin, Minhee, Hyeongjun, Taeyoung, Seongmin].
CRAVITY, which is also an acronym for “Center of Gravity,” is meant to attract/gravitate listeners into their unique universe, by pulling them in with their creativity, charm, and pure talent.
As humans, we all have our own “first experiences”; whether that be in school, society, or in a relationship. When encountering new relationships, we sometimes prepare ourselves by running from the starting line at full speed, hearts racing, butterflies in our stomach, but at the same time we are afraid. We are hopeful, but we also experience despair. CRAVITY, through their debut album, share these different emotions in an effort to convey a message of hope to each other, and most importantly, to their fans.
All seven tracks displayed on this album build up emotions step by step as you listen in full, maintaining tension and increasing immersion throughout. From the rock-styling of “Top Of The Chain,” to the fusion of Pop, Hip-Hop, and Trap heard on “Blackout,” and closing out with the final R&B/Pop track “Star,” which tells the story of wishing to be the “star” that shines through the dark sky for their fans, and to each other.
