The 5-track EP explores love and all its intricacies

Following the release of several singles, indie pop-rock band the vowels they orbit dropped their first-ever EP ang unang ikot on Friday, July 17.

The 5-track record includes previously released songs “Selos,” “Kiliti,” and “Pasa,” as well as two new tracks, “Kaya Ko,” and “Bumubulong.”

The album is produced by 6cyclemind and Banda ni Kleggy guitarist Rye Sarmiento.
