Bethany releases ‘Bright’ before year ends

JUST right before the year ends, Cebu City rock band Bethany is releasing a single that just might be your anthem for 2020.

“Bright” is the title of their newest single and is one of 10 new songs off the band’s sophomore record, “Beautiful Show.”

Catch its lyric video premiere on Dec. 20, Friday at 8 p.m. on the 22 Tango Records Facebook Page. The band will also be celebrating this release with a GRIT Special launch event on Dec. 21, Saturday at Draft Punk. Playing with them will be Vincent Eco, Forgetful Bob and Finding Apollo. Door Fee is at P150, inclusive of one free beer. Of course the single will also be available for streaming on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music and other popular digital music streaming platforms.

“Bright” continues to feature the signature melodic and lyrical work the band is known for. Fusing elements of pop, folk, punk and rock, “Bright” takes on the themes of life, death and love, and encourages steadfast positivity even when in the midst of extreme negativity.

“I feel my bones are made out of sticks. But rub them together, I know that I’ll flicker; I’m fragile but fixed,” the song goes.

Old and new fans of the band have been waiting for this as “Bright” and the entire second album actually, took years in the making.

“I’m not here to change the Bethany sound,” said 22 Tango Records’ Cattski Espina, who also co-produced the record. “I’m here to find room to grow and push the music further. There’s always room to grow. And it’s my job to find that.”

“Bright” is written and composed by Luis III, Angelo and Paolo Quibranza of Bethany. The track is produced by Brian Sacro and Bethany, co-produced by Cattski Espina, recorded at Kalye Musika Recording Studio, mixed and mastered at Room Eleven Recording Studio, and released under 22 Tango Records.
