the vowels they orbit proves longevity at Spotify Philippines’ Viral 50

After less than a month of charting in the upper reaches of the Spotify Philippines’ Viral 50, Filipino alt-rock outfit the vowels they orbit has finally reached the second spot of the streaming chart through their latest song “Selos.” The irresistible earworm vaults from #4 to #2 this week.

Taken into account its viral appeal, the vowels they orbit’s debut single joins the company of Lil Nas and Billy Cyrus’ “Old Town Road” and Allmo$t’s “Dalagang Pilipina” as one of the most popular songs in the country, as per Spotify Philippines’ latest tracking.


Unassuming Earnestness

“Selos” started gaining traction after the band performed the song at iWant ASAP Highlights this month. With its relatable lyrics, melodic pop appeal and lighthearted jazzy chords, it’s easy to see why the band continues to shred listeners’ hearts into pieces without resorting to overwrought sentimentality.

Produced by Rye Sarmiento and composed by Darwin Hernandez, the vowels they orbit’s maiden release was recorded at the Backdoor Studio. The song talks about “one-sided jealousy,” putting into light a normal situation that one goes through in a romantic relationship.


What’s next for the vowels they orbit

Now signed to Sony Music Philippines, the vowels they orbit are set to release an EP soon. The band, composed of Nikka Melchor (Vocals), Jeremy Sayas (Drums), Hannah Dela Cruz (Keyboard), Gene Santiago (Guitars) and Patch Javier (Bass), is currently being managed by Soupstar Entertainment, which takes pride of its star-studded roster such as Sandwich, Pedicab, Moonstar88, 6cyclemind, Gracenote, Imago and more.

“Selos” is now available on streaming and download platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes store, and Deezer via Sony Music Philippines.
