Filipino singer, songwriter, and producer raven continues to channel his passion and energy into well-crafted earworms, releasing his latest single ‘Lika Na’.
The track serves as a love letter to someone who has endured heartbreak, but is deserving of genuine happiness and love; its enduring positivity motivates listeners to embrace the brighter side of life during a time where the world is seeking comfort.
Written and produced by raven himself, with guidance from music mentor and co-producer Rico Blanco and sound engineer Emil dela Rosa, ‘Lika Na’ is a refreshing spin on ‘90s alternative rock and early 2000s power-pop, and turns the thrills of young and earnest romance into an explosive chorus and melodic, punch-drunk guitars.
“I was heavily into Beabadoobee and ‘90s-influenced indie rock when I wrote this song,” raven shares. “I’m thankful to sir Rico and sir Emil for helping me turn this music vision into a reality. It’s one of the most memorable tunes that I’ve worked on so far.”
The euphoric tune is accompanied with a music video directed by Daniel Aguilar. “The concept is built around teenage romance, with scenes inspired by prom nights, talent shows, and late-night dates,” raven explains. Shot with nostalgic glow and warmer colors, the visual narrative takes you back to a simpler time.
