If there is no song about super typhoon Yolanda in Gloc-9’s new album “Liham at Lihim” or if there is nothing forthcoming from him as a stand-alone single, he has this to say: “It deeply saddens me that the poor and underprivileged have to bear the dire consequences. I am not at all comfortable using such an unthinkable calamity to even be inspired to write a song. I believe my solidarity with the survivors of Yolanda is a very personal and private matter. Let’s leave it at that.”
Gloc-9 is more at home with unraveling small human tragedies and transforming them into statements of larger significance. Last year, the single, “Sirena” from his last album “MKNM (Mga Kwento Ng Makata)” told a detailed and heartbreaking tale about growing up gay. It propelled the album to such heights that less than a year after the album was released, the follow up was out.
