Everyone has their ghosts and IV of Spades prove it with the release of their latest single.
On Friday (04/17), the Filipino rock band faced their demons with a CCTV-shot visual for 'Sariling Multo (Sa Panaginip),' off their upcoming sophomore album. Edited by their creative director Daniel Aguilar, the new video is reminiscent of a technique ghost hunters use to capture spirits on camera, giving it some The Conjuring and The Haunting of Hill House chills.

Aguilar reveals that he treated the video as if he were editing visuals for a live performance. He shares with Bandwagon in a message, "Since performance video nga siya gusto ko parin sabayan yung intensity nung song and also make the viewers feel na nanonood sila ng live show. May storytelling pa rin somehow."

All scenes were taken separately, each shot from the homes of the 'In My Prison' trio, due to the ongoing community quarantine that's taken over Luzon to flatten the curve brought on by the novel coronavirus.
"I think releasing some music during this self-isolation can help some people cope up with this heaviness," bassist/vocalist Zild Benitez tells Bandwagon exclusively. "Music can also help people to protect their rational mental state. It’s hard and hefty but we’re all just trying to live. Remember that we’re all connected to each other. Empathize."
