The Manila-based singer-songwriter and producer urges people to take ownership of their own feelings with “Nangangamba”. “I wrote down some lyrics about the things I was going through at the time,” says Zack, citing an earlier failed romance as he talks about a song that he had written last year.
“I was in a situation where I felt like someone I liked was playing too hard to get, and the song pretty much circles around that idea: that sometimes when we play too hard to get, we lose people who really love us or people who [turn out to] feel the same way.”
The up-and-coming Filipino artist finds renewed perspective on the role that time plays in shaping your own destiny, setting an ultimatum on fear as he sings, “Ito na ang pagkakataon / Wala nang pipigil sa’yo / ‘Wag ka nang mahihiya / Sabihin na ang totoo.”
