In the Wind is the third Korean EP released by the South Korean boy band B1A4 and was released by WM Entertainment on November 12, 2012. The track "Tried To Walk" was used as the lead single of the EP.
As expected, the title song 걸어본다 (Tried To Walk) is another song written and composed by Jinyoung, and you can see his outstanding producing abilities. Jinyoung’s self-composed intro IN THE WIND has footstep sounds alongside the tune of cello, violin and electric guitar, evoking a mysterious atmosphere as if something is going to happen soon. As if looking at a story, with soft wind sounds we move into 걸어본다 Tried To Walk.
Tried To Walk sees an exquisite harmony of acoustic and electronic sounds alongside strong drum beats, paired with the emotional voices of the members in the vocals and raps - making it a song suitable for late autumn. It is an emotional pop dance song that only B1A4 can express through their unique performance, and is worth the anticipation.
Moving on from guitar strings, IF..(너만 있으면) is a British modern rock song that shows off the members’ individual lyrical voices with a bass rhythm above jazz piano and vintage instrumentation. The participation of MISS A’s SUZY for narration of 나쁜 짓 안 할게요 (I Won’t Do Bad Things) makes it more dramatic and realistic.
뭐 할래요 (What Do You Want To Do) is a song composed by Jinyoung, and expresses the fluttering feelings of someone starting a romantic relationship with fresh lyrics alongside acoustic hiphop sound and humming urban stereo featuring guest vocalist Shina-E.
Be My Girl is co-composed and written by Lee Kyuhyun and Brown Eyed Girls’ JEA. With much affection, JEA even personally featured for the song. Paired with Jinyoung’s soft and sweet falsetto, this harmony gives new heights to the solo song. With the inclusion of IN THE AIR, an up-tempo song that expresses the want to fly up into the sky and escape from busy repetitive daily lives, it makes up 8 songs with a variety of genres.
