A Special Music Video Launch for ‘Hawak Bitaw’ by LaLuna
October 21, 2019 Shaina Dulay
‘Hawak Bitaw’ by LaLuna is finally having its own music video! And to celebrate the occasion, a special launch will be held.
A year after their release on YouTube and almost 5 months after putting the song on Spotify, ‘Hawak Bitaw’ by LaLuna is finally getting its own music video! To accompany it, a special launch will happen at SaGuijo Bar in Makati featuring performances from LaLuna themselves and other local acts.
The Hawak Bitaw: Music Video Launch will happen on November 9, 2019.
LaLuna – Hawak Bitaw
You already know LaLuna as the four-piece alternative rock band consisting of Reason Fortun, Joshua Docena, Joshua Angeles, and Enzo Zavalla. Moreover, they are the independent group behind the emotional hit, ‘Hawak Bitaw’.
Since the song’s release on YouTube, it has garnered over 3 million views. According to the band, it was really surprising considering that they only relied on organic viewership engagements.
However, it is understandable why it got those numbers – ‘Hawak Bitaw’ is a good ‘bluesy’ song and it hits hard. Written by the lead vocalist Reason Fortun, a lot of people have related to its ‘real-talk’ message about failing relationships. In fact, I personally know a friend who have been listening to it a lot recently because it applies to her current love-life situation.
If you need to listen to it again, just play the button down below and let’s cry about the sadness of love together.
The Music Video Launch
Reason Fortun and film producer Camille Aragona wrote and directed the music video for ‘Hawak Bitaw’. Moreover, it will star indie film actress Iana Bernardez who recently acted in the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino entry, LSS.
The launch will be hosted by the band members themselves and will feature other OPM artists, namely: Carousel Casualties, Banna Harbera, Ysanygo, Sasaya and Where’s Ramona?. LaLuna will also, of course, be performing for the event. After all, the music video launch is an opportunity for the band to showcase themselves and their music.
Celebrate with them and go to Saguijo Bar in Makati on November 9! The door charge is at 300 PHP. For more details and updates for the event, like LaLuna’s official Facebook page or follow them on their Twitter account.
