After a multitude of landmark achievements and citations from fans, peers and industry outfits, Baguio-based indie-alternative rock act DILAW recently released their sonic masterpiece Sansinukob on all digital streaming platforms.

Brimming with a veritable love for both musical adventurousness and an unwavering desire to inspire change, Sansinukob is “a collection of songs that speaks about the universal experience and struggles people face – and seeks ways to help people understand themselves and the world better,” says vocalist and chief lyricist Dilaw Obero, when asked what ties the singles together, while guitarist/instrumentalist Vie Dela Rosa adds: “There’s a desire and encouragement for us to connect with something larger than ourselves – and for us to take an active role in creating a more just and compassionate society.” Both Obero and Dela Rosa are joined by drummer Tobi Samson, bassist Wayne Dela Rosa, guitarist Leon Altomonte and keyboardist En Altomonte.

The EP – released under Warner Music Philippines – is fueled by the title track as it pulls no stops with its dreamy, vintage musical vibe and trademark artful lyricism, which seemingly pleas for answers from the universe, and expresses an immense desire in searching for the truth – almost in a chant-like form of prayer.

Included in the EP are previously released singles “3019” – a fierce, no-holds-barred commentary against corruption…), the introspective “Kaloy” and the ballad “Uhaw” which catapulted the group to greater heights, peaking at #2 on the Spotify Viral 50 Chart immediately after its release last year, and its full-band version “Uhaw (Tayong Lahat)” garnering the #2 spot on Spotify’s Top 50 as of this writing.
