MYXclusive: High School Sweethearts Reunite After 25 Years In APARTEL's New Video "Guijo St."
Apartel tells a bittersweet tale of high school sweethearts who see each other again after 25 years in their new music video “Guijo St.” which debuted on MYX Premiere.
"Kung ano yung makikita mo sa music video, yun yung ibig sabihin ng kanta," said frontman Ely Buendia about the third single from the soul collective's debut album Inner Play following "Is It Hip?" and "Sala Sa Init".
Directed by Audry Dionisio and Apartel drummer Pat Sarabia, the music video of "Guijo St." follows two timelines - an alumni homecoming set in 2012 and a flashback to their senior prom 25 years ago. Ransom Collective fans will recognize the girl in the video - Jermaine Choa Peck - who appears opposite Lorenzo Hermosa.
"Mahirap, two weeks lang yung pre-prod namin. And medyo, you know, pag parang period story, mahal, cost of costumes and stuff. Pero it worked out," said Audry who came up with the story with Ely.
In keeping with the theme of the music video, Apartel had an 80s prom-inspired launch for "Guijo St." at Mow's! Check out our MYXclusive interview with the band below!
