They have been around for a long time now and the Girls' Generation train shows no signs of stopping having sold millions of singles and albums, acquiring mammoth hits on social sites such as Youtube and developing a vociferously loyal fanbase. The K-Pop phenomenon is as strong now as it has ever been. Some hard-nosed music critics will always dismiss K-Pop as tacky and heavily manufactured, which in a way it very well is. What stands bands like SHINee, 2NE1 and Girls' Generation out from UK acts like Girls Aloud and JLS is the effort put in. The production values, the harmonious sound play and the artistic exuberance makes K-Pop enjoyable and forward-thinking, pushing chart pop boundaries and re-inventing new aspects to the package. Girls' Generation are testament to such qualities and "Flower Power" is the nine-strong group's latest single that showcases their edgy nuances to full effect. Pulsating, grinding and overly saturated with clonking electro thuds and discordant bass static. Those are the ingredients that make "Flower Power" such a fantastic track for anyone with a pop orientated mindset. Add the succulent flutter of group vocals and street-savvy female slow-raps and you get a gigantic pop song that is delightfully fun, stuffed full with a rambunctious chorus and productions that grab your full attention.
