We Got talks about crazy times to keep up in its music video for 'Panahon'

07/28/2021 02:37:50 PM

We Got has released the official music video of their new single Panahon with direction by Shai Advincula.

The story of this visual accompaniment takes place in the time of the pandemic, where a woman in isolation found unexpected companionship in the unlikeliest of circumstances. The music video director shared the story behind the concept of this music video, which revolves around the idea of isolation and the crazy things that we do to cope with the loneliness that comes with it.
 “Over the past year, our lives have shifted by being stuck at home most of the time. There are a lot of things that we’re missing from our pre-pandemic life, one of which is the affection we get from a companion. But how do we cater to our need for affection in a socially distanced world? The music video shows a bizarre but refreshing take on coping.”
The reggae collective's vocalist and guitarist Mack Dela Cruz praised Advinculla despite being the first time working with the band for the first time. 

“She’s very professional, and her ideas blew our minds. We had so much fun and it was a great experience for us working with such a tremendous team.”

Written by the band’s guitarist Mike Quebral and arranged by vocalist and guitarist Mack Dela Cruz, “Panahon” was recorded at Kodama Studio with the goal to produce a calm, soothing piece of music that finds worth in spontaneity, and not having to waste life worrying about the daily grind. 

“We know a lot of people suffering from depression, so I wrote this song to remind people that there is hope, and slowly but surely, you’ll be able to get past it with a renewed perspective in life,” Quebral shares.

Panahon is the lead single of We Got’s debut EP, Hiwaga, which was released on all digital music platforms worldwide last week via Sony Music Philippines. Produced by Raymund Marasigan and mastered by Shinji Tanaka, the 7-track release delivers infinitely hummable jams that prove to be both fun and heartwarming. 

Stepping into the spotlight with staccato chords, infectious horns, and syncopated rhythms, the mini-album features five previously released tracks, and two new songs: the effervescent jam “Kakaiba Ka” and this current song “Panahon.” The latter brings some exciting new energy to this season’s predictable nature, taking into account the importance of weeding out the negativity to enjoy what life has to offer.
