Ever since dropping last June, TƟMA’s first ever solo single “509” has given us nothing but good vibes. And guess what, this indie pop track from the guy who fronts Jejaview and Snakefight now has a very intriguing music video!
Directed by Kevin Martelino and Melvin Piscasio, "509" features two masked men that stalk the singer wherever and whenever, haunting his mind and emotions. We got the chance to ask TƟMA the story behind the music video and you'll get to know it first here on MYX.
“The two masked men are both symbols of my emotions. May it be sad or happy, they will always be around to play inside your head. So bale ang concept ko talaga dito from the very start is gusto ko talaga may two masked men parating nakabuntot sa akin. Parang hostage nila ako in a deeper way. Hindi as a human, hostage nila ako through my emotions na hindi ko malampasan,” the artist explained.
TƟMA also said that the directors quickly got the idea he wanted to convey in the visual so things were done pretty smoothly by the team. He also incorporated his fascination with home invasion movies in this music video.
Creepy siya, in an emotional way. Kung mapapansin mo, sa ending, wala na sila and yung singing style ko sa ending is mejo energetic na and sarcastic, kasi accepted ko na sila. Whatever it is that i'm feeling inside, tanggap ko na and time will heal things and most likely, I'll get over it,” he added.
By the way, you'll be seeing the "twins" in his upcoming shows since they are his actual bandmates. Watch the “509” music video below!
