BTS: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

Stephen Thompson | Sept. 21, 2020
We've been trying to make a BTS Tiny Desk concert happen for years now - even gaming out ways we might move Bob Boilen's desk far enough forward to accommodate the superstar Korean boy band's dance moves.
In the end, it took a global pandemic - and the launch of Tiny Desk (home) concerts back in March - to make something happen. With BTS cooped up in Seoul, the group held true to the series's spirit by convening a live band for its Tiny Desk debut, and even arranged to perform in a workspace with a music-friendly backdrop: the record store VINYL & PLASTIC by Hyundai Card in BTS's hometown.
Opening with this summer's inescapable "Dynamite" - the group's first single to hit No. 1 in the U.S., as well as its first song to be fully recorded in English - BTS leaned hard into the new track's celebratory, "Uptown Funk"-adjacent vibes. From there, the group dipped into its back catalog, seizing on the opportunity to showcase its quieter side while (mostly) staying uncharacteristically seated. The breezily propulsive "Save ME," from 2016, ultimately gave way to a full-on power ballad in 2017's reflective "Spring Day."
The latter track seemed especially true to BTS's hopeful nature: Introduced with a few optimistic words from rapper and singer RM ("It's been the roughest summer ever, but we know that spring will come"), the song reflects on a need to wait out hard times, even as the weight of present-day pain feels oppressive.
BTS had intended to spend 2020 delighting the BTS Army in arenas around the world, only to spend these last few months performing in isolation. Released on the last day of a grim season, "Spring Day" provides a nice reminder of what awaits us on the other side. We just have to get through fall and winter first.
"Save ME"
"Spring Day"
V: vocals; Jin: vocals; Jimin: vocals; J-Hope: vocals; RM: vocals; SUGA: vocals; Jungkook: vocals; KHAN: drums; DOCSKIM: keyboard; Kim Kiwook: bass; Shyun: guitar

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit - stripped-down sets, an intimate setting - just a different space.

    I thought Tiny Desk promoted live music and singing?....This is run through more autotune than the whole first season of high school musical. I don't get it. Their poor faces look like they're ready to rip from all the surgery. Has no one learned anything from Michael Jackson? Those faces won't age well. Poor kids swept up by the machine.

    Armys...this is just a person who can't believe that 7 people can naturally be as beautiful and talented as BTS... And for your kindest information, no member had plastic surgery and except the pitch effects used for the first song for style purposes, NO autotune was used here.

    If Tiny Desk's whole series is about live performances, why would you think that NPR is letting them abuse the autotune? 😂Especially when the group is known for singing while doing some of the hardest choreographed dances out there. Sitting in a chair and singing should be a walk in a park.

    Do you ever open your mouths when western artists dye their hair? Let them dye their hair and do whatever they want to do. They will atleast look better than majority of y'all haters. P.S. NO autotune was used here (only pitch effects were used in the first song for style purposes)
