Rocksteddy overcomes the challenges brought by the pandemic in creating new song

11/19/2020 12:47:40 AM

Despite the challenges brought by the ongoing pandemic, alt-rock band Rocksteddy managed to create music, bearing a new song as a result.
“Isolation has been a challenge,” guitarist Juven Pelingon said. “Through video platform, live streaming is the best way to connect with other artists and fans. Everyone was forced to write and record their new material separately, but we’ve made the most of what we have.” 
The quartet behind the smashing hit Lagi Mo Na Lang Ako Dinedemda released Wag Mo Akong Iiwan, a brand new single that  depicts the challenging phase of maintaining a love that’s slowly dimming in the process. 

“It’s about the hardships of maintaining and choosing to love each other till the end,” vocalist Teddy Corpuz shared. “But most importantly it talks about hope and not giving up on each other. Feeling ko sakto rin ‘yung song sa panahon ngayon na maraming relationships ang nasisira at nasusubukan because of the pandemic.”
The whole songwriting and recording process was indeed a struggle for each member for they had to adjust, compromise and bring out their creativity despite the limitations.
“We used to be able to jam and form new song concepts together in studios before laying down the tracks in recording.” bassist Christian Sindico said.  “Now, we send drafts to each other online and individually record our parts before sending all the components back for final mixing.”

In spite of this tough phase, Rocksteddy managed to keep the fire alive. 
“The pandemic somehow affected us in some ways, but our passion connected us in terms of doing music together,” drummer Jeff Cucullo said. “Music is a form of language and expression, a way of escape. I’m sure my bandmates would agree with me.”
