LOONA is finally back as 12 in their latest mini album, “[&]”, which was released on June 28, 2021 at 6 P.M. KST with an accompanying music video for their title track, “PTT (Paint The Town).”
The mini album consists of 6 new songs, with “PTT (Paint The Town)” being a hip-hop track filled with Bollywood elements, as well as dubstep and bass sounds that powerfully convey LOONA’s strength as a group. The song, as described in Soompi, is said to portray LOONA’s powerful ambition to “paint the town in their own color.”
The mini album also expresses LOONA’s vocal colors well, with tracks ranging from hip-hop to lo-fi beats that showcase the group’s variety in tones.
This comeback marks the return of the group’s leader HaSeul, who had been on hiatus for personal health reasons since before LOONA’s comeback with “Why Not?” in early 2020.
LOONA is a 12-member girl group formed by Blockberry Creative, who has been well-received and loved by international fans for their concepts and unusual method of debuting the group’s members—beginning with solo debuts since 2016, then sub-units (LOONA 1/3, LOONA Odd Eye Circle, and LOONA xxyx), until eventually the group’s debut in 2018.
LOONA’s members include HeeJin, HyunJIn, HaSeul, YeoJin, ViVi, Kim Lip, JinSoul, Choerry, Yves, Chuu, Go Won, and Olivia Hye.
