South Korean boy band NCT Dream returned to the music scene on Monday, releasing their second full album and a video for their first single.

The new disc “Glitch Mode” contains 11 tracks, including the first single of the same title.

The single is described as a hip-hop song with a “dynamic 808 bass”. Member Mark contributed the lyrics to the song, which is about “freezing like a glitch mode in front of a crush”.

“Glitch Mode” comes nearly a year after the septet released “Hot Sauce,” their full-length debut album which peaked at No. 10 on Billboard’s World Albums chart and reportedly sold more than 2 million. copies in just 16 days.

NCT Dream – consisting of Mark, Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, Jaemin, Chenle, and Jisung – is a subunit of the 23-member group NCT, managed by SM Entertainment. He debuted in August 2016 with the single “Chewing Gum”.

The group was originally intended to be an NCT team aimed at tweens and teens, releasing mostly bubblegum-pop songs during its early years. Members were also supposed to “graduate” from the group at the age of 20, but this system was abolished in 2020.

In recent years, the band have moved away from their “boyish” identity and bubblegum-pop music, adopting a more mature image and hip hop-oriented sound.
