Alamat is on their way to a new comeback! The P-Pop group is set to release their latest song, “Porque,” on October 21st, and they have slowly begun to tease their fans with concept photos and a very short instrumental of the new song. The instrumental and caption look like the music is leaning towards more of a slower tempo love song. Check it out below.
With what we have seen so far from the cover art, it’s giving us “Cariñosa” vibes, which adds to our love song prediction. Cariñosa is a Philippine dance of the colonial-era origin from the Maria Clara suite of Philippine folk dances, where the fan or handkerchief plays an instrumental role as it places the couple in a romance scenario. But with Alamat, you never know what you will get, so this slow-tempo instrumental might just be an intro to a whole other sound.
Also, can we talk about the fashion behind the concept photos? Only a few have come out so far, but from what we have seen that the group continues to stay true to themselves, incorporating Philippine textiles into their wardrobe. Evie Medina of Hapi Habi Wearable Weaves is behind the tops in the series of photos. Hapi Habi Wearable Weaves advocates for incorporating Philippine weaves in daily wear. See Tomas’s fit below.
As the comeback creeps in closer, make sure to stay up to date with us here on MYX to see if our love song prediction was correct. Also, remember if you have any P-Pop news stories, let us know by submitting your stories here.
