1. Self Producing
Stray Kids’ music offers a unique sound that reflects inspiration from Electronic Dance Music, Pop, and Hip-Hop. However, what differentiates this 8 member group from other K-Pop talents is their producing subunit. The subunit is known as 3RACHA and works on composing lyrics and crafting Stray Kid’s distinguishable sound.
2. Relatable, Inspiring, and Positive Lyrics
Because Stray Kids self produces, many of their tracks focus on self-improvement and breaking societal norms. Their music and content express a creative storyline that has their fans awaiting the next chapter. For example, their recent title track: Back Door serves as an invitation for viewers to join them. The unique lyrics and sound of Back Door earned Stray Kids a spot under Time Magazines’ “Best Songs of 2020.”
3. Personal Connection with Fans
Stray Kids offer a multitude of fan services that connect them to their fanbase known as STAYS. For instance, certain members hold weekly V-Lives to engage with fans. Additionally, members post vlogs on youtube under their series known as SKZ VLOG giving fans a look into their daily activities.
4. Self-Expression and Individuality
Aside from their group projects, Stray Kids emphasize the importance of individuality and self-expression. So, individual members release personally crafted tracks under a series called SKZ-PLAYER.
With powerful performances, relatable music, and a strong connection to their audience, Stray Kids exceed the expectations in the K-Pop industry. Their artistry and unique sound are the main reasons for their large support from around the world.
