Raven's new song 'Lika Na' puts a refreshing spin on the rock music of the past

11/21/2021 02:25:43 PM

Singer-songwriter and producer raven has a new song that puts a refreshing spin on the indie rock of the 90s and early 2000s as he continues to channel his passion and energy into accessible but well-crafted earworms. 

The latest song titled Lika Na not only makes its listeners make a trip back to memory lane, it also turns little thrills of romantic adolescence into an inspiration. Confiding romantic earnestness over an explosive chorus and melodic, punch-drunk guitars, the talented newcomer embraces the touchstones of the past while carving a special place for his own kind to thrive. 

For the young musician and producer, “Lika Na” serves as a love letter to a ‘girl’ who has endured several heartbreaks in life, but is deserving of genuine happiness and love. 
“It’s hard for someone to trust and believe in second chances, especially after experiencing pain after pain. This song wants to bring light into someone’s darkness, hoping to dry those tears away with new memories.”
The track’s feel-good message not only helps in tuning out distractions and unnecessary stress, but also motivates listeners to embrace the brighter side of life. Its enduring positivity makes sense in an era that badly needs both break and reprieve, especially with listeners turning to lighter, more inspiring songs for comfort.

Lika Na is written and produced by raven himself; with guidance from music mentor and co-producer Rico Blanco, who also played guitar (with raven) and bass; and sound engineer Emil dela Rosa, who has mixed and mastered critically acclaimed albums by UDD and other artists. Luke Sigua also played drums for the song.
“I was heavily into Beabadoobee and ‘90s-influenced indie rock when I wrote this song,” raven shared. “I’m thankful to sir Rico and sir Emil for helping me turn this music vision into a reality. It’s one of the most memorable tunes that I’ve worked on so far.” 
The euphoric tune is accompanied with a music video directed by Daniel Aguilar. Shot with nostalgic glow and warmer colors, the visual narrative takes you back to the days when life was simpler, and spending time with your loved one is enough to complete the day. 
“The concept is built around teenage romance, with scenes inspired by prom nights, talent shows, and late-night dates,” raven said of the music video.
Lika Na will also serve as the title of raven’s upcoming debut EP, which contains familiar hits and two new songs and will be released soon via Sony Music Philippines.
