The holidays are right around the corner!
With Christmas just a few days away, everyone has been itching to take their holiday leaves as early as now (to continue staying indoors at home). It's been such a strange and confusing time, but we all have to keep on keeping on, just like some of our favorite artists who continue to drop tunes all year round.
From December Avenue to The Geeks, check out this week's new releases:
December Avenue - 'Polaris'
December Avenue are going back to their roots with their hopeful new single 'Polaris' as they release its MV Isip-directed music video.
In a message to Bandwagon, vocalist-guitarist Zel Bautista compares the star Polaris, which appears at the center of star trail photographs taken in the Northern Hemisphere, to a person he hopes would find their true self. "So in the song, Polaris represents the person I'm talking to. Like I'm encouraging that person to become true to himself and that he's more than just a person standing still," he says.
The track will be available on music streaming platforms on Saturday (12/19) at midnight.

It took the band, Direk, and I a couple of zoom calls, brainstorming ideas to compound on that concept and get everything laid out before I presented it to [Kathryn and Daniel],” says writer Juan Miguel Severo, in an official statement.
