In celebration of Independence Day, Filipino electronic hip-hop supergroup Assembly Generals pay tribute to the indigenized Filipino alphabet with their latest video 'ABKD.'
Ingeniously written as an acrostic poem, the fiery new single runs through the Abakada alphabet forward and reverse in a witty lyrical and musical manner. The fresh release talks about writing beyond one’s self, crab mentality, the Filipino concept of sacrifice, and striving for the better as one—a celebration of the Philippines as a nation: the good, the bad, and the hopeful.
Backed by dark synths and a heavy bass, the self-produced track gives a fresh taste of what Assembly Generals have to offer on their forthcoming sophomore album.
