SB19 shows artistic growth, love for fans in Pagsibol EP


P-pop group SB19 has officially released their extended play (EP) Pagsibol which talks about their “growth and journey as a group from the beginning up to where we are today.”

The boy band’s leader Pablo shared during a recent virtual presser that they want to take their listeners to a rollercoaster ride of emotions when listening to their six-track EP. 

“Ayaw po namin na parang iisa lang po yung tunog na maririnig nila kapag napakinggan nila yung buong EP,” said Pablo, who wrote and co-produced every song on their newest release.

He continued, “Gusto po namin sumakay sila ng rollercoaster na parang maiiiba-iba talaga ‘yung mood nang sa ganun po hindi nila mapre-predict, or mabibigla sila kung ano ‘yung mapapakinggan nila na susunod.” 

Pagsibol features previously released hit songs MAPA and WHAT?, along with new bops Mana, Bazinga (a track for their doubters), Ikako (a tribute to the frontliners) and SLMT (a song dedicated to their fandom A’TIN). 

Released a year after their debut album Get In The Zone, Justin stated that they want to give hope and inspiration to their listeners with their EP.

“Sana kapag narinig nila yung Pasibol na EP, mabuhayan sila, mas ma-motivate sila sa mga bagay na gusto nilang gawin sa buhay. Sumisibol ka pa lang darating yung panahon na tatatag ka na magiging ‘puno’ ka na.” 

The group also shared their excitement to have their fans, who have been supporting them since Day 1, listening to their new tracks. 

“Sobrang thankful lang talaga kami sa lahat ng effort nila. Sana matumbasan namin ‘yun ng pagmamahal namin sa kanila,” said Stell. 

“Pakinggan na lang po nila yung SLMT,  nandun po yung lahat ng gusto namin sabihin sa kanila,” added Ken. 

SB19 is a five-member group composed of Josh, Pablo, Stell, Ken and Justin.
