Raven is a rising singer-songwriter/producer from the Philippines. After racking up more than 10 million streams with his debut EP Lika Na, the young musician is back with a new single “Hara” that puts a modernized twist on the popular pinoy “harana” style of music. The new song combines different genres, fusing lo-fi elements, hip-hop sonics, and intricate guitar melodies.
“Unlike some of the songs that I’ve written so far, most of which are mere expressions of admiration, this particular track chronicles the experience of wooing someone in hopes of capturing their heart,” he shares. “It’s an expression of sentimental nature, but it also comes from a place of humility on the suitor’s end.”
