EXO: Monster

EXO are real mood-makers… Monster is a sultry song with a sense of urgency – you can’t help but feel like you’re being hunted. The chiaroscuro effect from deep purple to bright magenta highlights the creeping effect.

Block B – Jackpot

This song has a mischievous and teasing tone to it — you can tell what’s coming from the opening scene with the scary clowns. The vintage carnival scenes use underlying pinks and purples to give a sense of royalty and levity.
