Last December, the trio—Clem Castro, JM Del Mundo, and Ace Del Mundo—released their first digital single after 10 long years, “Lovers Go, Lovers Come.” The song, according to the band’s vocalist, Clem, was written August last year, inside a garage-turned-guest-room a few meters away from his brother’s house in Los Angeles.
“It’s partly inspired by the poetry of E. E. Cummings. I was touring my solo project Dragonfly Collector. I had a gig in San Francisco and I happen to pass by Barnes & Noble, saw 100 Selected Poems by E.E. Cummings and bought a copy,” he shares. “By the time me and my friends drove back to L.A., I was itching to write a new song. Upon my return to Manila, I presented it to my band mates. After a couple of jamming sessions, we recorded the song and it officially became our comeback single.”
And since it’s the day of lovers (who come and go, of course) today, we asked the singer-songwriter for love advice as well. His tip: “If you are single, middle-aged, and quite flustered with dating and relationships, try reading Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari. For the younger generation, please take it easy with technology. And I’m dead sure you know what I mean. Protect your heart and most importantly, USE PROTECTION.”
