The trial version is over for boy band xikers, who is now ready to show its true colors in the real game with its third EP “House of Tricky: Trial And Error.”
“As the third entry in the ‘House of Tricky’ album series, we are now done with the tutorials that Tricky, the icon of our fictional universe, sent us, and now we are in the real game,” Jinsik said during a press showcase held at the Shinhan Card Sol Pay Square Live Hall in Mapo District, western Seoul. The press showcase was held Thursday afternoon, a day before the release of its third EP.

The band’s debut lead track “Tricky House” (2023) saw the band incorporating traditional Korean lore like dokkaebi (goblin) and Bollywood-style sounds in a Moombahton-themed track, while “Homeboy” (2023) showed the “refreshing yet dynamic” side of the boy band.
With “We Don’t Stop,” its latest lead track, xikers reinterpreted the old-school hip-hop genre by mixing it with other genres of music.
“The lead track shows xikers’ strong energy as we relentlessly march forward,” Yechan said.
