Longing for someone you love dearly after you part ways is such a hard feeling. Your heart is still hoping that he/she will be back though your brain clearly knows that it’s not going to happen anymore.
That’s the central theme of Issa Rodriguez’s latest single “Silong” featuring Kyle Juliano released under Universal Records. (LISTEN HERE) This song is her follow-up to her five-track Ready EP released February of last year.
The lyric-driven musician amazingly painted the struggles of someone who’s holding on to someone who hurt him/her and expecting for things to go back the way it used to be. The singer-songwriter delivers a compellingly melodramatic rhythm in heart-wrenching lines “Kahit na alam ko na hindi na magbabago ang isip mong sumuko na / Bakit puso ko’y lumalaban pa?” the song’s chorus.
For her listeners to get to know more about the song’s meaning, Issa explains that “Silong” is basically about those who are alone in fighting the battles and pains of moving on. “Sa lahat ng lumalaban mag-isa, pakinggan n’yo ‘to tapos let go na ha? 1/2 joke,” she happily quips.
Truly, listening to this brand-new track will give you an outpour of emotions any time of day.
“Silong” by Issa Rodriguez featuring Kyle Juliano can be streamed on your favorite digital platforms under Universal Records. It’s also part of Spotify’s latest New Music Friday Philippines playlist.
