Isn’t it lovely to think that no matter what happens in life, you’re bound to meet your soulmate? That’s certainly the type of feeling you get from OPM band Sugarcane’s latest release, “Paruparo.”
“Paruparo” is centered on the idea of destiny, delving into the famous saying “if it’s meant to be, it will be.” This overarching theme complements the track’s suave melody and kilig-inducing lyrics, making for a love song you can listen to on repeat.
“The song portrays the determination and hope of finding the one person that is right for you – your ideal partner and lover. The song also depicts an ideal lover’s beauty and perfection both inside and outside,” says Sugarcane pianist Luis Beato.
The single is Sugarcane’s first song with an official music video, which they premiered last July 16, 2022. Fans who want to see how the music video was shot as well as how the two leads went about the filming can watch the “Paruparo” MV behind the scenes.
Up-and-coming artist JC Herrero is also featured on the track, perfectly complementing the smooth vocals of Sugarcane’s Cedric Angeles. When asked about what “Paruparo” meant to him, JC zeroed in on the aspect of soulmates.
“It foreshadows how you’re destined for someone. Sometimes, you’ll meet the right person at the wrong time. However, even through brokenness, you’ll still end up being the missing puzzle piece that perfectly fits your other half,” he said.
Sugarcane initially broke into the OPM scene after Carl Guerzon and Cedric Angeles posted a now-viral cover of Orange and Lemons’ “Yakap sa Dilim.” This then led to various appearances on local television shows, kick-starting their music career.
Since then, Sugarcane has released songs that have easily captured the hearts of their fans. Whether you’re listening to them sing about unconditional love in “Dalangin,” or the feeling of being enamored by someone’s beauty in “Gabi,” their fervent storytelling will surely sweep you off your feet.
With over a million views on YouTube and 2.6 million streams on Spotify, it’s clear that this band is one to watch out for.
“Paruparo” is out now on various digital music platforms.
