New IMAGO Singer KIARA SAN LUIS Makes Her Debut In "Pag-Ibig Na Walang Balik"
OPM alternative rock crew Imago is back with a brand new song and a fresh new face in the band. Kiara San Luis took over the vocal duties from ex-singer Mayumi Gomez who decided to part ways with the band after getting married last year.
Having only been in the band for a couple of months now, Kiara admitted that she's still in the adjustment phase. "Marami, siyempre. When it comes to performing kasi wala naman talaga akong formal band before. Even sa songwriting, pina-practice ko na siya ngayon."
However, bassist Myrene Academia commended the newbie singer and said she isn't hard to work with. "With Kiara, wala masyadong [problema]. She's always fun to hang out with, she's a great singer and she's always listening to suggestions."
As for the more "established" members Tim, Mervin and Myrene, it's the sole love for music that still keeps them going despite the lineup changes the band has undergone through the years.
The song "Pag-Ibig Na Walang Balik", as the title suggests, talks about unrequited love. The piece was written by drummer-turned-guitarist Zach Lucero who's sort of been the main songwriter of the group for years.
The "Sundo" hitmakers premiered the track's video last July 23 at QC rock dive The 70's Bistro and they treated fans to some of Imago's all-time hits, some of which Kiara excitingly revealed that she was singing for the first time live. The music video's concept is pretty straightforward and sees the band in an abandoned lot playing the heart-wrenching song.
To those excited to finally see their MV, "Pag-Ibig Na Walang Balik" will premiere on MYX this coming Saturday, July 27th!
