Filipino math-folk quartet Fools and Foes are back with their latest single, “Just You.”
Recorded at guitarist Miguel Querubin’s studio, The Auralith, “Just You” follows the release of the band’s haunting visual for “Nocturnal” and gives listeners another peek into the band’s upcoming studio album.
Frontwoman Isa Romualdez tells Billboard Philippines about the track, saying it’s one of Fools and Foes’ favorite songs as a band: “‘Just You’ is about being infatuated with someone you know pretty well, and it’s about longing for them, but at the same time you’re OK with your current relationship with them, even if it’s just platonic.
“You just want them in your life and you’re OK with that. The way we wrote it was just so natural and collaborative. Ralph [Gonzalez, guitars] just started playing a riff in the EADEAD tuning, and we all really liked it and just jammed to it, then arranging it was pretty easy too.”
Fools and Foes are still aiming for an early 2018 album release, despite Querubin taking time off to study in Japan.
“Once he gets back for good in November, we’ll hustle for sure,” Romualdez says. “Right now, we have so many songs that are WIP and parked. We’re really excited to record and finalize them. But we’re pushing for early 2018 only if it won’t compromise the quality of our album.”
