Expectations are high for Filipino alt-rock outfit the vowels they orbit, what with the bar set by their peers from the same management such as Sandwich, Moonstar88, 6cyclemind, Pedicab, and more. And expectations are met with the release of their first single, "Selos." Seven months later, the much-anticipated follow-up is out and it made the wait worth it.
Entitled Kiliti, the vowels they orbit's second single shows their more carefree side. According to the band, the song is about finding the perfect someone in an imperfect situation. See, when we talk about love, it's only a concept or two of the multi-faceted topic; the band's awareness of it is not to be missed. With "Kiliti," we are drawn to the kind of love that surpasses even the greatest odds and circumstances.
When asked about the overall process for "Kiliti," bassist Patch Javier expressed their excitement towards sharing their latest song to their listeners. Though nervous because of the overwhelming success of "Selos," the members are confident with the song's simple yet lush sound.
“It’s always also a great feeling when listeners interpret the song in their own ways and find a connection to the song somehow,” vocalist and guitarist Nikka Melchor shares the same sentiment. “Knowing that we love this song and that we put a lot of work into it is enough to not feel worried.”
"Kiliti" was written by vocalist Nikka Melchor a few years back and was released under Sony Music Entertainment. It is arranged by members of the vowels they orbit along with 6cyclemind guitarist Rye Sarmiento.
Listen to "Kiliti" on streaming and download platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes Store, and Deezer.
