OU comments on the new single: OU is back! Life unfolds, drop by drop, a fleeting thread in the ticking dance of time. A brief bloom, a withered leaf, breathing in the rhythm of day and night. The river of life, a pale countdown, flowing soil beneath the dreamy sky. Pieces fall, growing without words, returning to the dust. The flower of life bears its fruit, lost in the vast expanse. A poignant journey, from bloom to disappearance, echoing the eternal tick-tock of existence. The debut offering ‘蘇醒 Frailty” from our new album ‘II: Frailty’ has arrived, and we’re excited to share it with you all.”
