SUD continues to work hard in the middle of the pandemic lockdown as the group releases a new single under Warner Music Philippines titled “Sagutan.”
“Sagutan” is the highly-anticipated carrier single of SUD’s upcoming full-length studio album which will be released later this year. It follows the success of “Baliw” in 2019, which garnered millions of streams and was featured profusely on national TV. With “Sagutan,” SUD tells another stirring story through acoustic soul.
Nothing sounds better than a love story turned into good music by talented people, as SUD does best. SUD describes the song’s narrative as the beginning of a love story. “Sagutan” is centered on the feelings of two people and the uncertainty that comes with it. It’s a duet between vocalist Sud Ballecer and bassist Raisa Racelis, who co-wrote the song with drummer Jimbo Cuenco. The verses take listeners inside the heads of two potential lovers who have been in constant conversations with each other, leading to the admission of feelings.
Similar to their previous work, “Sagutan” continues the five-piece act’s successful streak of producing relatable rock music — playing their familiar alt-pop sound, while mixing it with more generic rock formats. Moreover, “Sagutan,” which was recorded in The House Of Billy Gaga Studio with engineer Emil Dlea Rosa, is a well-rounded example of SUD’s trademark ballad style.
“Sagutan” is expertly-written and very easy to sing along to. It’s neither overwhelming nor boring – definitely a good choice for a carrier single as it is now excelling tremendously on radio.
As soon as the song hit airwaves after premiering exclusively on RX 93.1, the response was fantastic.
“Sagutan” is now on Apple Music, iTunes Store, and Spotify. Head over to their Facebook page for the links.
