6cyclemind returns with new single off the upcoming album, the soaring 'Langit'

12/13/2021 01:37:35 AM

6cyclemind, known for one of the staple acts of the local rock band explosion in the 2000s, makes its triumphant return to the scene with a new song that depicts aspiration.

Characterized by its soaring introspection, Langit is a song about chasing one’s dreams, making it happen, and allowing yourself to fail and persevere in order to achieve your goals in life.
As lead vocalist Tutti Caringal put it in a statement, “It won’t always be a smooth ride. There will be bumps on the road, but what matters is whenever you fall you get back up and soldier on.”
Serving as the first signle off  their upcoming seventh studio album under Sony Music Philippines, the unapologetically brash anthem was written by rhythm guitarist Rye Sarmiento and Michael Lao, who initially made the demo for every dreamer out there to keep pushing and never give up on their dreams.  And the song has managed to undergo a series of process despite the challenges brought by today's times. 

With minimum health and safety protocols taken into account, the band went through several jamming sessions prior to hitting the studio to record their respective parts. Despite the restriction imposed during the peak of the pandemic period, 6cyclemind carried on with their brand of professionalism and work ethic, producing one of their finest singles to date.
“I feel like we’ve surpassed our expectations in terms of sound and feel,” Rye said. “We’re trying to deliver a positive and empowering anthem that has that epic sound to it. Special shout out to our sound engineers, Oliver Romblon and Jam Bumanlag, whom we get to work for the first time. We’re grateful of how everything turned out.”
Still on the top of their game 20 years after the launch of their career-defining debut, 6cyclemind loves a good challenge, and on “Langit,” they’re still as persistent as ever, and are more risk takers when it comes to the creative aspects of the recording.
“What makes the single a cut above the rest is that the recording process challenged everyone in the band to give his best with limited physical and moral support from other members,” bassist and backing vocalist Roberto "Bob" CaƱamo shared. “The song being technically self-produced by the band, was recorded with a little more personal touch by each member.  Everyone was so involved during the post production and was so excited to hear and release the final cut of our latest song, Langit.”
