Throughout their career, the TXT members have wowed MOAs with their creativity and their unique sound. In a recent interview with NME, Soobin and Yeonjun revealed how the group has carved out a distinct identity for itself while developing its own sound.
The members were interviewed to discuss their latest album, The Chaos Chapter: Fight or Escape, which is a repackaged version of The Chaos Chapter: Freeze.
During the interview, the members were asked, “When TXT first debuted, many people saw you as a ‘little brother’ group to BTS. How do you think TXT has shaped its own distinct identity and sound?”
Yeonjun explained that TXT has always told their own stories and that they’ve experimented with various genres in order to find a sound that’s all their own.
We’ve always told our own story from our debut till today and it’s a story that many have been able to relate to precisely because it’s a very real story of people living within this generation. We’ve worked with many genres to enhance our musical capabilities and hone our sound, and through this sound, we tell stories of our generation, a generation at the crux of growth.
Soobin’s statement was totally in agreement with Yeonjun’s. He highlighted the group’s growth as they evolved from teenagers into young adults, and he said their growth as people is directly related to their growth as musicians.
I feel that as we went through The Dream Chapter, Minisode1: Blue Hour and now The Chaos Chapter, the five of us have grown musically, but also as five individuals progressing through our teenage years into our early 20s. We had new experiences and saw further out into the world, and were able to feel a range of emotions. I think such growth was also applied onto our musical identity and colour as one team – as Tomorrow X Together.
We totally agree that TXT has created a sound that’s all their own, and we love hearing them share their stories through their music!
