 A pop-electronic collab by Tonie Enriquez and Dave Anonuevo

Singapore-based Filipino music artists Tonie Enriquez and Dave Anonuevo just released their new single “love ain’t real,” which paints the emptiness in love’s uncertainty through its English and Filipino lyrics. 


Released under ABS-CBN’s Tarsier Records, “love ain’t real” is about a relationship that felt too good to be true and uses its strong bass lines and impactful kicks to evoke heightened emotions. Tonie and Dave co-wrote the song, with the latter also being its producer.


“The Filipino lyrics in the bridge was our personal favorite because we both know that the ‘hugot’ language hits the hardest. The transition from first drop to the bridge strikes to represent the feeling of being complete to feeling empty,” the duo shared.


The pop-electronic track is the first Tarsier Records project of Tonie and Dave, who both grew up in Singapore. Individually, Tonie is a singer-songwriter and an experienced stage performer while Dave has made quite a name for himself in the Lion City through his impressive portfolio with established and rising artists.


But their constant homesickness to the Philippines along with the urge to seek a deep and meaningful connection to their home country have led them to make music with the Manila-based label.


“Beyond just a perfect match in Tarsier’s sound and ours, we really love the message that Tarsier Records stands for, ‘to become the bridge for Pinoy artists to have an opportunity to enter the global music scene,’” they said.


Stream Tonie and Dave’s “love ain’t real,” out now on various digital music platforms. For updates, follow Tarsier Records on various social media accounts @tarsierrecords.
