(SPOT.ph) It's time to update your playlists, OPM fans! Pop-rock band Itchyworms has just released a new single in collaboration with local rock icon Ely Buendia entitled "Pariwara."
In a recent post on their Facebook page, Itchyworms' first-ever musical collab with Buendia was a "product of their first musical interaction together since the early 2000s." The song was reportedly in Buendia's "chest of unfinished ideas" since his Eraserheads days, up until this year when Itchyworms vocalist Jugs Jugueta asked if he had any partial songs lying around.
After adding more lyrics and reworking musical arrangements, the song was completed in May, and a music video is already on the way. The song was released on Monday, August 1, across local radio stations nationwide.
If you missed out on the fun, the song is set for release on multiple platforms this August. For now, you can listen to a 17-second snippet (above).
