Filipino band Over October have released their newest single entitled ‘Sandali Lang’.
Out today (August 23) on all major streaming platforms, the band’s first Tagalog track taps into the feeling of heartbreak experienced by being left by someone you love.
The track’s themes are further illustrated through vocalist Josh Buizon’s lyrics like: “Sandali lang, bakit ka umalis? / kung sino pa’ng nangakong magmamahal hanggang huli / ‘Di ba pwedeng balikan lang muli / Mga pangako ng kahapon ay ngayo’y walang silbi / Paalam,” which translate to “Wait, why did you leave? / The one who promised to love until the end / Can’t we just go back / The promises of yesterday are now gone / Goodbye”
