Wanna have a breath of fresh air from the riots we are all experiencing now? Well, start with music.
Indie singer-songwriter Carmina Topacio is back in making her voice and thoughts heard through her captivating brand of music. She just released her latest single Guilt Stricken, a song with traces of old school alternative rock type of vibe.
Carmina admitted that she wrote the song after a toxic relationship she had in the past. She said, “When a person you love continues to hurt you, the question that keeps repeating in your head is how they could do it and live with it. You wonder if they feel any remorse. The song basically talks about that, but it could also be interpreted and seen from the perspective of the person who has done wrong and is experiencing the unsettling feeling of guilt. I want to share it because I think a lot of people could relate to it.”
During her online blogcon with bloggers and fans last August 22, she also revealed that she will soon share an OPM song she composed during the quarantine period.
Carmina is now all over Spotify. The first song she released is “By my side” which is basically about long-distance relationships. She feels that the song is timely because during the lockdown, many relationships were affected and some couples got to experience what it was like being in a temporary long distance relationship (LDR). This song was released on her birthday last July 1.
Her “Guilt Stricken” was added to the Official Spotify Playlist: Fresh Finds Philippines. It is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, and other music platforms.
She premiered the music video for the said song yesterday, August 27. Topacio made a homemade music video for this due to the pandemic. She shot her own scenes and edit the files with help from her siblings.
