Silent Sanctuary Releases New Single "Sa'Yo" and The Music Video Soon

For all Silent Sanctuary fans out there, Kwento Ni Toto shares another release from the group.  After the success of their first 2 singles from their album “Monodramatic”, Silent Sanctuary returns to their roots of bittersweet melodies with the release of their new single “Sa’Yo”. The 4-minute song, according to songwriter Sarkie Sarangay, was inspired by a friend’s story of being uncertain in this thing called love. It has two versions in the album, the full band and the orchestral version.

Here's an interview made with the group to know more about the new single and video.

Why did you choose this track as the second single?
“Aside from marami nang fans na nag re-request na i-release ‘to, gustong gusto rin talaga namin ‘tong “Sa’yo” and we’re really excited to be able to share this song to a wider audience now that the music video is also gonna be released.”

What is the story behind the song?
“Actually, yung “Sa’yo” hindi ko nagawa out of a personal experience. Naka-kwentuhan ko yung isa kong kaibigan tapos na-insipire ako sa story nya, kaya nagawa ko ‘to. Yung lyrics nya kasi parang conversation lang ng dalawang tao na may feelings sa isa’t-isa pero hindi pa talaga nagkakaintindihan kung gusto ba talaga nila maging sila.” – Sarkie

What’s the concept behind the music video?
“Nung una, ang gusto gusto lang talaga namin is parang simpleng performance video. Pero habang nag b-brainstorm kami, may nag pop-up na idea na parang okay kung instead of a storyline or narrative, idaan na lang sa sayaw yung parang “story”. Tapos nung nag-iisip na kami kung sino yung pwede sumayaw, naisip namin humingi ng tulong from our friends sa Sexbomb Girls. Pumayag naman sila kaya sobrang thankful kami sa kanila lalo na kay Joyce sa pag sayaw nung lead part and kay Aira sa sobrang gandang choreography.”

Tell us more about the video. How was the shoot?
“Director namin for this music video is Kid Guevarra (guitarist ng Tanya Markova/Dhruva Tara). Sobrang relax lang and enjoy kasi yung bulk ng trabaho nandun sa dancers eh. Haha. Wala naman naging masyadong aberya habang nag s-shoot kami. Sobrang nakakadala din nung mismong dance routine. Pati kami muntik na sumayaw...ulit. Hahaha.”

How is this different from the first 2 videos (Bumalik Ka Na Sa’Kin and Meron Nang Iba) “As we said, ang main difference na nung video na ‘to is the dance routine care of our friends from the Sexbomb Girls. And yung main challenge syempre na pano mo ico-convey yung message nung kanta through the dance. Gusto lang namin ma-achieve is a simple video with a concept na di pa namin nagagawa.”

The group "Silent Sanctuary" is composed of Sarkie Sarangay on vocals and guitars, Chino David on violin, Anjo Inacay on cello, Jason Rondero on bass and Allen Calixto on drums.
