‘Clue’ vividly expresses the tension in the crime scene by combining the lyric that describes Sherlock’s rational deduction in trying to prove a crime based on the evidences in the scene, the oppressive beats, and the mysterious melody, and ‘Note’ represents Sherlock’s psychology by combining the lyric composed based on the emotional intuition expressed in Sherlock’s note and the refreshing voices of the members.
