Your newest go-to song for some good vibes, no doubt!

 

Sponge Cola rejoins Sony Music and releases a single under the label once again since their debut album Palabas.

 

The pop-rock band induces summer vibes into post-summer jam “Lumipas Ang Araw” released 2 days ago reigning in just the right amount of optimism we need right about now.

 

 

 

“Lumipas Ang Araw” is a love song set in the time of COVID where the internet is undoubtedly a blessing to lovers and friends in lockdown, yearning for the day when seeing each other is deemed safe by all measures. But until then, god bless the internet!

 

The melodies start off with a 70s Beach Boys vibe, painting the song in summer colors. The upbeat pop-rock notes come in and spring up in the chorus to get your head bangin’ away your problems and focusing on the good parts of life.
