E'LAST's second mini-album <AWAKE>, following the previous work <DAY DREAM>, still delivers high-quality sound with the participation of top Korean musicians.
The sound that adds humanity with rich orchestration and acoustic instruments on top of a trendy and stylish rhythm is a lyrical sound based on oriental beauty and narrative, a bit out of the pop and conceptual mainstream sound of the K-POP idol scene.
Is advocating.In particular, the title song'Tearsmark' is a song that combines the flow of the narrative with the previous work'The Knight's Oath', and contains images of love and oath, subsequent betrayal and misunderstanding, brainwashing and awakening, and repeating sentences as if screaming. It creates a sense of profoundness and some unknown mystery.It will also be a pleasure to fans that you can watch the endless efforts and growth of Elast members through various genre challenges so that no similarity can be found on any track.
1. Intro.Intro starts with a lyrical melody that announces the opening of this album.The beautiful memories and agony unfolding in the process of changing the protagonist are composed of a beautiful orchestration sound and an intense beat, leading to tears in the title song.

2. Tear marksThe tear marks are the title track of Elast's second mini-album, a song that melts Elast's unique sensibility with a powerful beat and a magnificent orchestral melody. The memories and expressions of sadness of the protagonist who gradually lose themselves as a sequel to the debut song Knight's Oath are like watching a movie. The song is unfolding as a story that continues the narrative from the previous work, Knight's Oath, and the repeated lyrics represent a state of chaos, like a brainwashing message resonating in the head. Amidst the splendid presidential feast, the lyrical melody contrasts, especially when the performance on the stage shows a dynamic that is difficult to imagine when listening to music alone, maximizing it and adding emotion. In the breathtakingly unfolding music, the mysterious and intense voices of the Elast members are also very impressive, adding to the lingering sound of the song.

3. DangerousDangerous is an EDM-style song of Trap Beat, which is a bit different from Elast's lyrical sensibility so far, and shows a bold twisting charm. The storytelling that crosses the boundary between reason and emotion and unfolds a dangerous imagination is very interesting. The lyrics that ooze out a secret and dense image and the bursting speed make you fall into the song rapidly, and the exciting yet easily memorable melody gives you some kind of tickling stimulus and then turns your running time off. The point of watching is to feel the strong voice color of the elast that has been understated so far.

4. PresentPresent is a ballad song with a warm piano and acoustic sensibility, carefully expressing the feeling of holding on to a person leaving.The reflection of loved ones on the word Present, which has the meaning of present and gift at the same time, gives a fresh and pure feeling.The heightened emotions of the faint melodies and powerful orchestration remind us of a beautiful landscape and seem to lead comfortably to a scene in the listener's memory.

5.Because Of YouBecause of you, a medium song in the Future Bass genre, is a song that gives a cute impression with an R&B sensibility melody and lyrics expressing honest emotions.It reminds me of the object of envy that everyone had at least once in the song, which expresses a mind that is clumsy but cannot be expressed in words.It is paradoxical, but it has a charm that keeps laughing at somebody's memory, and somebody's present ongoing affection with a cheerful and cool sound.
