[Review] 1 to 3 – SUHO (EXO)


Also ending the week is SUHO, who makes his official solo comeback with the mini-album 1 to 3 and the title track of the same name. This follows on from the pre-release single Cheese that SUHO released a couple of weeks back, which features WENDY from Red Velvet.

SUHO takes us back to the 70s with 1 to 3, a rock track that features disco and funk influences. The funky guitar work and bass riff makes 1 to 3 quite a unique and exciting track. So does the synth organ that forms part of the backing. Altogether, we have another fun track in 1 to 3, with an instrumental that grabs your attention alone. SUHO’s vocals glides along the instrumentation quite nicely, and I find his delivery and melodies heightens the energy that comes off the instrumentation of 1 to 3. The chorus is definitely testament to the latter. It is also extremely upbeat and catchy, as a result, and this has me tapping alongside the music as I listen to the song. I also love how dreamy the bridge got, which helps give 1 to 3 some variety within its mix. If I could ask for more out of 1 to 3, I would have liked a bit more range from SUHO, as I felt a ‘holding back’ presence from the soloist. I also wished the instrumental had a chance to really rip and go wild, via an instrumentation break. I think that would have taken the song to ‘home run’ territory. Overall, 1 to 3 is a really great, funky and unique track from SUHO.

SUHO sings about breaking free from social norms and going on his own individual path in 1 to 3. And that is exactly what we see in the music video. At the start of the video, we see SUHO aboard a spaceship that is flying in the same path as everyone else. But soon after starting the video, SUHO takes control of the ship and breaks away from the same path as everyone else. Whilst away from everyone else, he is able to explore and discovers that there is much more to the world via that alien or robot mask he finds on a planet. I think he dons that mask at a later point in the video, which coincides with the animations that feature throughout the video, signifying the birth or creation of something new. The video ends with SUHO flying away and all the other spaceships following behind him. I really like the space theme that is happening in the music video. The song also calls for something a little dynamic, and we get that via the unsteady and rough camera shots of SUHO and the band scenes throughout the video.

Song – 9/10
Music Video – 10/10
Overall Rating – 9.4/10
