The second EP from the Filipino indie pop/rock band the vowels they orbit is titled "tuloy tuloy tuloy!"

“It is about finding ourselves caught in the cycle of our own emotions, yet still choosing to move forward. Because this EP is a continuation of the first, the phase of emotions is a bit heavier — from coping with the unfamiliar feeling of life without your first love in ‘Una’ to dealing with grief and the loss of a loved one in ‘Clutch.’ However, it does end on a high note with ‘If You Come Back To Me,’ talking about being sure of oneself and not relying on another to live and grow. In the next phase, we are looking forward to more healed feelings. We also gave attention to the performances of each member, doing what they do best individually while still keeping their chemistry as one band. With so much going on, we tend to wonder when it will end.~The Selos act shares in a collective statement

Filipino indie pop/rock band the vowels they orbit drops sophomore EP, tuloy tuloy tuloy!

The well-rounded charm that made them an instant favorite when they first came out is still present in the new EP, which was released by Sony Music Entertainment. It shows improvement in both the music and the lyrics.

Themes aside, tuloy tuloy tuloy! talks about not letting heartbreak take over and going out into the world with a new sense of determination, even when things get harder than usual. The EP additionally examines assuming command over your own story to improve it and tolerating your brokenness with the expectation that you will one day recuperate and move along.

The second EP from the Filipino indie pop/rock band the vowels they orbit is titled "tuloy tuloy tuloy!"

The vowels they orbit’s new EP, tuloy tuloy tuloy! is produced by Rye Sarmiento, guitarist of 6cyclemind and Banda Ni Kleggy, and was recorded in his studio, Backdoor Recording Studio, during a 6-day lock-in session in 2021. Inspired by iconic alt-pop acts The Cardigans and Moonpools & Caterpillars, Sarmiento wanted to capture the ‘90s sound in terms of arrangement and vibe, but made it a point to retain the band’s indie pop influences with a more organic, rock-oriented direction.

The majority of the songs from tuloy tuloy tuloy! were written and sung by lead vocalist/guitarist Nikka Melchor. Keyboardist Hannah dela Cruz wrote and performed “Clutch,” and Jeremy’s father, Ponciano Sayas, penned “Here In My Arms,” in which drummer Jeremy is a featured vocalist. The end result is a project that feels singular, yet distinctly unique in their surprising ways. 

Aside from “Una,” “Bangungot,” “Clutch,” “Here In My Arms,” and “If You Come Back To Me,” the EP also features the focus track “Sandali,” which talks about the importance of slowing down and finding the light amidst everything. 

According to the five-piece act, the song was written by Nikka during the start of the pandemic, thus the lyrics. However, she realized that the message can still be applied to life, in general. 

The EP release will be accompanied by a launch on March 11, 2023 (Saturday) at the 70s Bistro in Quezon City, featuring performances by the vowels they orbit, I Belong To The Zoo, Autotelic, syd hartha, Better Days, Hey June!, and Banda Ni Kleggy. 

the vowels they orbit’s ‘tuloy tuloy tuloy!' is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment.
