One Click Straight launches a new single and MV “Lilo”

One Click Straight (OCS), a group that describes itself as “Asia’s finest softboi candy pop band”, launches its new single and accompanying music video, “Lilo”. The song continues to emphasize the band’s synth pop sound, evoking smooth Nineties pop in its sonic palette.

Tim and Sam Marquez composed “Lilo”. Sam says that the song was recorded in Daniel Monong’s studio and their home studio. He notes that the track was composed with minimal instrumentation, and what took time was the process of producing the song more than recording it. “It was really fun laying down the tracks for it”, he says.

Tim Marquez says that “Lilo is about cheaters, plain and simple”. He notes that these crazy times see a lot of heartbroken people; those who cheat, he observes, tend to find it easier to do in our online age. The song takes a tongue-in-cheek approachto speak about people who fell in love, who were fooled, and who were hurt.

Along with the new single is a music video, which was produced by Zoopraxi Studio and directed by Dominic Bekaert. Joel Cartera, another member of OCS, says that their director delivered with fun ideas of how to go about this project. The video features Albert Nicolas a.k.a Asian Cutie and Jach Manere. Cartera notes that the video is meant to provide a contrast with the overall vibe of the song. He says, “if the audience gets it, they get it, and if not…rak.”

When we asked about what’s next for OCS in 2022, Sam is excited to say that they’re about to drop their second album. He says that this record promises “new sounds, new songs, and definitely new stories to tell.” It is an exciting year for the band, its fans, and the many people who will discover their music.
