Ang Pinagmulan - IV of Spades, Directed by Raymond Dacones and Trina Razon
The music video features the band being submerged numerous times underwater. One Music PH offers its own perspective regarding this imagery. It could be a metaphor for the members drowning in the own thoughts, or drowning in the harsh opinions of other people, namely the band’s haters. However they've overcome it all to becoming a legendary band in OPM.
Dila - Zild, Directed by Daniel Aguilar
Dila is a song about those who can't keep their mouth shut. According to Scout Magazine, the music video is a trippy decoupage masterpiece with magazine cut-outs of mouths and lips floating around Zild, who seems to be stuck in stop-motion and singing in cramped cupboards.
Kalawakan - Juan Karlos, Directed by Rod Tumbaga
In the music video, a traveler navigates through an explosion of colorful backdrops and timelines. Kalawakan is part of the band’s 10-track album Diwa.
Lakas - Coln ft. Dale Jairus, Directed By Vladimer Castañeto
The music video begins with a message to listen to the music through headphones or speaker for a better experience. It delivers with an action sequence that matches the tone of the song. When it cuts to the band's live performance, it gives a classic rock experience.
Pahirapan - Mayonnaise ft. I Belong To The Zoo, Directed By Juancho Pancho
Pahirapan sings about a love that’s frustratingly hard at a time when the lovers have supposedly outgrown their immaturities. The singer pleads for his love to make sense, to stop fighting and to stop hurting him in a desperate cry which some of us know all too well. The video may not directly relate to the song, but it does have slick shots and a plot-twist you didn't see coming.
