Get a Guitar by Riize


        SM Entertainment had just debuted a boy group named Riize. As the company's first new group since Aespa in 2020, as well as their first male group following NCT's game-changing debut in 2016, SM Entertainment is ready to make new history with Riize. Riize has seven members consisting of Shotaro, Eunseok, Sungchan, Wonbin, Seunghan, Sohhee and Anton. On September 4, 2023, Riize released their first debut song called “Get a Guitar” and kicked off their career with a pop tune with a lot of groove and energy. “Get a Guitar” is an enjoyable listen right away. “Get a Guitar”, as mentioned in the title, has repeated guitar riffs, some of which, particularly in the chorus, remind the listeners of Queen's "Another One Bites The Dust” and Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic”. 

        The entire song is about enjoying life with your friends and family while being accompanied by the sound of a guitar. It is about a person's path of self-discovery and self-expression through guitar learning. The song also emphasizes the idea that music and playing an instrument such as a guitar can be used to express one's emotions and imagination. It is anticipated that the song will delve into the idea of utilizing music, particularly the guitar, as an escape from life's difficulties or as a type of therapy to deal with painful feelings. This could be a song that inspires people to pursue their musical talents or interests.

        Overall, “Get a Guitar” is a really vibrant and pleasant song with its rhythm guitar breakdowns. It is highly recommended to listen to whenever you need to unwind for a moment. The complete lyrics of the song encourage the listeners to always be energetic and excited wherever they are. Are you ready to have a joyful youth and sing along with Riize?
