Stray Kids – Scars

Released on the 4th anniversary of their pre-debut single, ‘Hellevator’, it’s no wonder that fans are seeing similarities between ‘Scars’ and ‘Hellevator’. Co-written by the dynamic rap line of Stray Kids, 3RACHA, the song reminisces the demanding trainee days when the boys worked hard to reach this level of success. The boys are seen stumbling through an abandoned establishment where they strive together in hopes of a better future. The emotional track borders with less instrumentation as well as touches of EDM with gritty rap in a true Stray Kids fashion. It has surely strengthened the anticipation for the upcoming album that would be an ensemble of four tracks.
