Demos Needed For EP // South Korean-Japanese Girl Group // UNRELEASED/UNPUBLISHED

As this is a search specifically looking for tracks to place with an artist,  it is essential that the tracks are UNRELEASED/UNPUBLISHED  so please confirm this as a file comment. At least 50% of the publishing rights will need to be available. The label is collecting multiple tracks for an upcoming EP/Mini Album for a well-established popular South-Korean - Japanese girl group. (1) Fresh Commercial Pop Dance Vibe The label is looking for a fresh Popular Dance track with positive energy as an attractive introduction to their project. Catchy, feel-good and upbeat vibes achieved through mid-uptempo Electronic productions with the use of piano melodies, synth pads and higher-pitched instrumentation to build the tracks. The topline should be easy to listen to and have replay value. The overall arrangement should be radio-friendly and vocal production should be consistent with creative alterations to match the lyrics and bridges or hooks. High energy should be present on the hook ideal for a group performance. References: IZ*ONE - Eyes IZ*ONE - Sunflower IZ*ONE - Beautiful (2) Main Single - Catchy Pop Easy Melody This will be the main single of the project which has a chance to also be the title track. A simple melody is needed that builds to a big addictive hook with a repetitive but catchy melodic structure. The intro should be strong and distinctive which can be achieved through beginning with the main melody for 4-8 bars then leading straight into the first verse. Use of pre-chorus to build anticipation to a simple but infectious chorus suitable for big performances and dance routines. Singing and vocal production should be dynamic with use of adlibs to add variation and push the narrative. References: IZ*ONE - Rumour IZ*ONE - dreamlike Station X 0 - Wow Thing Dua Lipa - New Rules (3). Cute Pop Vibe - A cute Pop track is needed here with a catchy positive vibe for a young audience. The intro must be anticipatory and can last from 4-8 bars leading straight into the main chorus to set the tone for the track. Verses can be from 8 bars leading to a catchy bridge or pre-chorus for another 4-8 bars, returning to the chorus. Vocal delivery for verses can be in a soft tone with the freedom to build to a big vocal delivery for the hook. Production should have typical commercial Pop elements including bright Synths, driving percussion and sweeping sounds. References: SNSD - Genie BLACKPINK - As If It's Your Last Twice - Likey  (4) Summer Pop Vibe The label is looking for a big Pop hit with a summer vibe here. Production must be fun and catchy with typical elements of a summer hit such as Bright Synths, anthemic Trumpets and a driving drum beat with a steady pace that builds with the track leading to a big Chorus. Pitched up vocal chops can also be incorporated into the production to create an upbeat vibe. Vocal delivery must have energy, be infections and can include an easy to follow rap vocal segment but must be dynamically suitable for a big performance.  References: Red Velvet - Red Flavour HYUNA - Bubble Pop! Sistar - Loving U (5) Mid-tempo R&B Ballad To end the project a midtempo epilogue style track is needed here. Tracks must be R&B in the form of a Ballad. Production elements can incorporate acoustic guitars as the lead, minimalistic piano with a simple chord structure and prevalent percussive elements such as claps and clicks or more unconventional percussion. Productions must not be overly Electronic, but could sparingly make use of ambient pads if appropriate. Vocal delivery must be soft and maintain the Ballad style direction and could appropriately incorporate a rap section whilst maintaining the introspective, emotional vibe.
