Eyez Eyez Victon

VICTON has been teasing fans for a bit now with teaser images for their latest album and title track, but we finally have the music video for “Eyez Eyez”!

This is a lot different, more aggressive and dark, than their original debut style, but the boys work it quite well.

Song

With such a change from their original style, I was a bit nervous, but VICTON pulled off the new style really well.  The song is catchy, with quick and slow parts that give the song depth beyond a single tempo.  I loved the hook “Eyez Eyez bebe” (at least it’s bebe according to the translation on the video).  Instead of dragging out the normal “baby”, we see a short “bebe” which is pretty unique and puts more focus on the first portion of the lyrics.  Even if the original lyrics aren’t “bebe”, the pronunciation is!

The song definitely has attitude paired with a smooth mix of rapping and vocals that flows seamlessly as the song progresses.

Costume, Set, Filming

The way this video was filmed was a bit all over the place.  I wish there was a bit more focus on a single scene before it jumped to the next, because I really wanted more of a chance to take in each individual and group scene.

The set was pretty cool.  It jumped back from what seemed like a empty room with the song title written in neon behind the dancing boys to what seemed like a subway station.  The set never took away from the presentation of the dance or lyrics, which was nice, instead it helped to put the focus on the boys since the background colors were more neutral than them.  Their clothing was a bit of a mix, with nice dress-like jackets, light shirts, and dark pants.  With the mostly white background, they definitely commanded attention.

Lyrics

Woo, we haven’t seen each other in a while
I was really upset
If you were a little more late
I would’ve had a killer grudge bebe
Woo, you’re only looking at your phone again (every time)
That’s no no
This is too much
Whatever I try to say, it’s too much

Why are you leaving me here
And looking somewhere else?
Don’t do this to me

Only look at me, eyez eyez baby (woo)
Till honey drips
Every day, eyez eyez baby
Like that star (okay)
Sparkling ice ice my baby (woo)
I will only place you in my eyes forever, shinin
(You) shinin (you)
Eyez, eyez, eyez, eyez,
Look at my eyez

Eyez, eyez, eyez,
Eyez, eyez

My love is one way one way
An exploding Pompeii Pompeii
Now everything I say,
To your ears it’s
Bow wow wow wow
Yippy yo yippy yeah
You’re only looking at your phone and smiling
Prettily baby
Slide on me like a lock screen
Lay back yeah
I want it, that warm look
Just one time and I’ll feel better

This isn’t it
I didn’t scold you
Stop putting on that scary frown

Only look at me, eyez eyez baby (woo)
Till honey drips
Every day, eyez eyez baby
Like that star (okay)
Sparkling ice ice my baby (woo)
I will only place you in my eyes forever, shinin
(You) shinin (you)
Eyez, eyez, eyez, eyez,
Look at my eyez

Where am I? Who am I?
I want you
To fall into me that much
But when you play me
Pushing and pulling
I can’t help it, I get dragged around
I keep wanting to lose to you

Only look at me, eyez eyez baby (woo)
Till honey drips
Every day, eyez eyez baby
Like that star
Sparkling ice ice my baby (woo)
I will only place you in my eyes forever, shinin
(You) shinin (you)
Eyez, eyez, eyez, eyez,
Look at my eyez

Eyez, eyez, eyez,
Eyez, eyez

E, you’re in my eyes
Y, I’m in your eyes
E, you’re in my heart
Z

E Y E Z
