Back in 2002 my band 17:28 released a single called "Sukob Na" under Star Records. It was used as the music to the iconic ABS CBN Rainy Season Station ID. But more than that, it was the first song of a fantastic debut self-titled album produced, arranged and conceptualised by our Musical and Vocal director Mon Faustino.
Our group had a good run in the early Naughties and we eventually moved on to do different things. Ironically, these uncertain and unprecedented times brought us back together to make (or re-make) some music.
The song is about sticking together no matter what the weather. Jonard, Chino, Gian and myself felt people needed to hear this now more than ever.
Umulan man o umaraw. Rain or shine. Magkasama tayo.
