aespa have made their debut with an enchanting video for their first single, “Black Mamba.”
The colorful visual introduces the world of aespa, and an ongoing storyline with a villain called Black Mamba. The clip situates the four-member girl group in a trippy virtual universe, filled with strange weapons, technology and more.
The song’s lyrics also make reference to this fictional world, as well as the girl group’s virtual “æ” avatars: “I’m the aespa, there can’t be two / Monochrome to colors / This is evo, evolution.”
aespa is the first girl group to debut under SM Entertainment since Red Velvet in 2014. Watch the video for “Black Manda” below:
