The track harmonizes a retro sound with a straightforward melody, resulting in an addictive tune that epitomizes NINE.i’s unique allure.

"Turn it off" represents a new wave of synth-pop, produced collaboratively by composer Sweetune and NINE.i. Sweetune’s popular tracks and melodies, combined with the refined musical style of Vahn, NINE.i’s main producer and composer, have come together to create a refreshing summer track.
