“Fingertip” is the lead single from The Awakening EP, released March 6 and is produced by GFRIEND’s frequent collaborators Iggy and Seo Youngbae.
“Fingertip” follows the unique sound of GFriend pretty closely, but does add a little bit of spice to their retro tinged pop. You can especially hear it in the guitar riffs. But what really makes the song memorable is its retro fitted synth beats that feel like they’ve ripped straight out of the 80’s and 90’s era.

The Awakening is the follow-up to July’s LOL, which peaked at No. 7 on the World Albums chart.
The music video is full of playful innocence but with a twinge of sexual energy in lyrics like:
“Bang bang Bang FINGERTIP/I’ll aim for your heart/Bang bang bang FINGERTIP/So your heart stops/So what I’ll come/Closer to you by your side/You’re on the tip of my finger/FINGER/FINGERTIP”
It’s definitely a must watch! Check it out below!
