May bagong kanta ang IV Of Spades (IVOS) na tiyak na kagigiliwan ng kanilang fans. Nag-release ang grupo ng new single titled “Sariling Mundo (Sa Panaginip)” under Warner Music Philippines.
IVOS managed to grow a huge following through the years. Being very prudent about the material they put out, their new single "Sariling Multo (Sa Panaginip)" is another feather in their cap.
On releasing a new record in the midst of a pandemic, vocalist Zild Benitez said, “It was strange at first but I do think that music helps some people to get through rough times.:
Ayon naman sa guitarist ng banda na si Blaster Silonga, “I don’t see anything strange about releasing music during these times. If anything, people have clung themselves more to music and arts as entertainment and comfort lately.”
“Sariling Multo (Sa Panaginip)” offers a neat reintroduction to IVOS' music, with a more rock-heavy instrumentation and an obvious departure from their previous tracks. The track explores letting go of old hurts, facing your demons, and being true to yourself.
“It was one of the songs that started the upcoming album. Sonic State Audio (Christopher and Bri) mixed, mastered, and engineered this song. We’ve been working with them since 2017,” Zild explained.
Taking their time proved to be very effective. Despite having a limited discography, “Sariling Mundo (Sa Panaginip)” still strikes a chord in the hearts of their old and new followers.
IVOS built a following with their multi-dimensional game plan. Their distinctiveness, particularly their outfit and personal branding coupled with excellent musicianship, electronic production, and songwriting makes the group the emerging stars that they are.
With their earlier releases reminiscent of old Manila Sound and the music they (or their parents) grew up with, IVOS continues to bring something different to the local landscape and this fits in with their strategy to win over fans with their live performances, and enjoy the IV Of Spades experience
