K-Pop Double-Take is a periodic review column highlighting recent releases that have yet to receive the attention we feel they deserve.

Hot on the heels of their debut single "Ear Attack," rising stars Badkiz are back with their third single, "Babomba," an anthemic dance tune with obscene amounts of energy and serious hit potential.

Released on Nov. 12, "Babomba" is a turbo-charged slice of electro pop and a strong offering from this emerging South Korean girl group, with attitude and talent to spare.

In direct contrast with the group"s second single, the tender ballad "Father," "Babomba" is a return to the pumping dance sound that Badkiz established on their debut single.

And the girls pull it off with a tough style all their own
