    After landing on several high-profile playlists curated by some of the biggest names in K-Pop, Filipino singer-songwriter/producer Young Cocoa returns with “Nova,” his new single under pan-regional label, OFFMUTE.   Incorporating a bossa nova sample as foundation for the rest of the beat, the prolific hip-hop artist raps about young love with awe-inspiring giddiness, and delivers one of the breeziest crossover tunes to come out in a while.   The smooth bop was produced by Cavill, who captured the energy of the lyrics with undeniable ease. It will be part of his upcoming debut EP to be released in the latter part of 2022.    “We wanted to create a song that was an easy listen, had a lot of bounce, and felt ‘bubbly’ in the same way the lyrics were written,” reveals the rising Asian rapper. “Nova’s creation really just started off of the exploration of a different sound, and progressed into a song that I wrote about having an innocent crush, or puppy love. The title is directly inspired by my favorite snack, Nova and the use of Bossa Nova elements in the production.”   The song comes with a performative visual that aims to bring to life the single art inspired by Wes Anderson—in some capacity. Young Cocoa adds, “The video is set in sunrise, midday, and sunset, where I basically perform as if I’m talking about/to the person I like.”   The Manila chart-topper also tapped filmmaker friend Miko Del Rosario to direct the “Nova” MV with Leo Malli as DOP.   Check out Young Cocoa’s “Nova” on all digital music platforms via OFFMUTE.

    SkyChurch has been releasing regular singles throughout the last several months, this being the 4th single to hit digital stores worldwide. The band's current lineup consists of Russell Dela Cruz on vocals and bass, Jomal Linao on guitars (also from bands Kamikazee and Talata), and Paul Eusebio behind the drums (also from Valley of Chrome). Russel had this to say about the new single: "Stronghold is one of the older songs that we had in the band. Skeleton Music was written back in the early 2000's.  Lyrics was all about making yourself a fortress that is strengthened by renewed FAITH, and HUMILITY thus making you a STRONGHOLD." Skychurch is getting back to playing live shows after the 2-year long pandemic and lockdown in the Philippines. For bookings they can be reached on their FB page (https://www.facebook.com/skychurchph). Their merch is regularly available online at Tower of Doom's DoomShop (shop.towerofdoom.net)

    Rivermaya makes a triumphant comeback with “Casino,” their first single since 2018’s “#SBN.” Blending post-punk and alternative rock influences with ‘80s dance grooves, the upbeat number deals with a love affair that instantly blossomed into a serendipitous, all-in romance.   The release of the track comes with a music video that features two strangers who met and connected in a speakeasy bar, and danced the night away like it’s their last. “It’s also the first Rivermaya track with a four-on-the-floor feel all throughout,” lead vocalist and drummer Mike Escueta adds. According to Escueta, the chorus, lyrics, and melody of “Casino” were written before the pandemic, and were recently reworked when he saw the file in his Google Docs. “It was just a matter of looking for chords that fit the melody. Once I had a rough arrangement down, with just drums, keys and chorus vocals, I started writing the verses around the story.” Escueta mixed and co-produced “Casino” with musician-friend Paulo Zarate on Studio Z. Mike Elgar (vocalist/guitarist) recorded his guitar tracks at home, while Nathan Azarcon (vocalist/guitarist) went back and forth with the remaining elements of the song. Born through online collaboration and never jammed in one space, “Casino” sets the tone for what’s to come on Rivermaya’s future music-making endeavors. The iconic band is targeting to finish an album’s worth of songs. “It’s been 5 years so we really miss putting out new music,” Escueta shares. “It looks like we are gonna be able to do this a lot more often this year.” Rivermaya’s “Casino” is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Philippines.
