JJCC Brings Out Dancing Robots for “Bing Bing Bing” Written by Andy On August 30, 2014
After releasing a number of humorous countdown videos for their comeback, JJCC have released their new track, “Bing Bing Bing (One Way).”
When the initial teaser came out, I was unsure as to what to think of “Bing Bing Bing.” It was quite the departure from their debut track, “At First.” “At First” was an R&B track, while “Bing Bing Bing” is electronic dance. Despite my misgivings, “Bing Bing Bing” has turned out quite nicely and well put together.
The initial listen doesn’t really make the song special or even leave an impact — I was almost ready to completely write it off as just another typical Duble Sidekick dance track. However, after a few more plays, the catchiness came through
