Donning black and silver ensembles, LE SSERAFIM made an explosive debut at the 2024 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 13 (afternoon of April 14 in the Philippines) at the Sahara Tent in southern California, United States.

LE SSERAFIM’s Chaewon, Sakura, Yunjin, Kazuha, and Eunchae performed their songs, namely, “Antifragile,” “Fearless,” “The Great Mermaid,” “Unforgiven,” “Eve, Psyche, & The Bluebeard’s Wife,” “Perfect Night,” “Smart,” “Easy,” “Fire in the Belly,” and the unreleased track “Hot and Fun” on Weekend 1 of the annual music festival.


The Source Music and HYBE quintet is the third K-pop female act to perform at the festival after Blackpink in 2019 and aespa in 2022. They will also perform on Weekend 2 on April 20 (afternoon of April 21 in the Philippines).


As they wrap up their Coachella debut, here are eight LE SSERAFIM tracks to know more about the girl group.


Opening with a hypnotic melody and a “Can you see her,” the members’ vocals stir listeners into dreamland, having them wrapped around their fingers. The R&B track might be slower than their fast-paced, performance-heavy tracks — but its dizzying loop and its chanting “Can you see her” before the seamless chorus — swoop outsiders into a thrilling ride.

‘No Celestial’

The unrelenting energy of the rock-infused “No Celestial” reminds listeners of early Avril Lavigne, including the uncensored “I’m no f***ing angel / I’m no f***ing goddess,” as a shady clapback to their high-fashion, seraphim angel-inspired image. The persistent beat, including Yunjin and Chaewon’s punching vocals, keeps hearts thumping until the final note.

‘Sour Grapes’

Taking a break from the groove of “Blue Flame” and idiosyncratic “The Great Mermaid,” “Sour Grapes” is a combination of melodic R&B and sugary sweet, where the once-sextet dives into the uncertainties of a relationship through the lens of a young adult. This track might be one of their earlier B-sides, but it remains one of the quintet’s greatest gems.

‘Good Parts (when the quality is bad but I am)’

Many love LE SSERAFIM for their signature chic and confident image (as reflected in their sound) — listeners would sometimes like a breath of fresh air through a shift in genre or subdued lyricism. Steering from their female power and into a peek into their inner demons, the quintet’s yearning to love themselves offers the contrast in its subdued melody. Yunjin and Chaewon are as always, the group’s vocal pillars, but Sakura, Kazuha, and Eunchae’s vulnerabilities became the shining point of the track.


Despite its sophisticated and chic sound — and the members sounding like snobbish popular girls — “Choices” is another empowering offering from the group that sings about not caring what others think. “What you want? Look ahead / Happy is all around / Choicеs, I will choose my own way,” they vow in a seemingly nonchalant reminder, and you can almost feel your heart swell until the last melody.

‘Swan Song’

Persistent electric guitar riffs keep the melody of “Swan Song” alive, as it pays homage to the group’s knack for R&B and rock tunes. Based on the lyrics, the riffs are reminiscent of the waves that a swan — whether black or white — tries to navigate while remaining graceful in every step.

‘Flash Forward’

Considered as one of LE SSERAFIM’s hidden gems, “Flash Forward” is a thrilling dive into city pop that features the classic elements of the quintet’s offstage personalities — easygoing, fun, and wholesome — put together in a song. This might be a different song to expect from the quintet, knowing how they usually show off their girl boss images onstage, but it’s still a showcase of who they are.


Another Japanese offering from the members, “Jewelry” taps into LE SSERAFIM showing off their confident image through their vocals that talk about the standards of “stunning beauty.” Confident and relatable, it’s yet another display of the quintet embodying what it means to be fearless in multiple ways.
