December 2nd - Hulyo releases a music video for their latest single 'Wake Up'. The music video is a different take on the meaning of the song by Director Enzo Valdez. The music video presents a heavy twist at the end. As much as the slow mellow sound of the song could be the soundtrack to your ber-months, the music video though takes a brave different approach to it. The narrative will surely tug on your heartstrings.
Hulyo has been in the fringes of the music industry for almost five years now with previous releases “Sandali Lang”, “Kahit Isang Saglit”, and “Di Ba Ang Sabi Mo.” In an interview with the Hulyo’s front man and songwriter Simon Panaguiton he shared more about the concept of the song and the idea of the music video. In the interview Simon talks about how people often relate their songs to personal experiences. He also personally like to hear from their fans about their own thoughts on the song. Their fans like the simplicity of the melody and the lyrics, and how it all folds together elegantly into a simple yet beautiful song.
The music video is directed by Enzo Valdez of Sindikato Studios and was shot in the Mandaue Foam Showroom in Shaw Boulevard. His interpretation of the song (without giving away too much of the twist at the end) is more on reflection, and how as much as living is riddled with hardships and challenges, it is also full of goodness and love.
The song is sweet and almost like a lullaby, but the music video looks at it deeper, Simon says; "I always want to know how people interpret our songs. And I personally like to know each of them. As I understand, the way I intended the song is about, differs to others, and I always like that." The purpose of this video is to inspire viewers to live and to love as the character of the music video realizes the truth about her reminiscing. The band is currently working on new material for the next year and is very excited to start releases more songs but with a different sound.
