TWICE Releases 'Alcohol Free' to Tease Upcoming 'Taste of Love'
Their performance on Ellen showcases a beautifully placed setup with the girls dancing infront of a bar corner. They wore bohemian-themed dresses with white, red, and beige color schemes. Despite news on Ellen Degeneres shutting down her famous TV show by the end of 2022, the show continues to run its operations and enjoy well-loved guests. As reported by the Hollywood Reporter, Ellen seeks to end her show due to personal convictions that it's time to move forward with the next part of her life.
The nine member girl group released the song "Alcohol-Free" as a follow up of a single that they released last may, "Kura Kura." "Alcohol Free" talks about the strong feeling of being in love and out of your mind, being compared to a drunken stupor.
As seen in the music video, the single revolves around the themes of romance and is accompanied by a vibrant theme. It features the nine members grooving along to "Alcohol-Free" with bossa nova instrumentals. The music video's location was in Holiday Island, Jeju, South Korea.
When it comes to the lyrics, the themes of the lines relay a message that love makes you feel drunk even though you haven't drank a glass of alcohol. Like margaritas and champagne, love can make you go wild and crazy.
The song is known to be co-written by the head of JYP entertainment, the band's management. For the record, the band has become one of the most sensational groups not only in south Korea but also worldwide in this generation.
