Ben&Ben share charming music video for ‘Upuan’ starring Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano

The video arrived alongside their sophomore album ‘Pebble House Vol. 1: Kuwaderno’

Filipino folk-pop band Ben&Ben have released a new music video for their single ‘Upuan’ featuring actors Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano.

The video, which premiered on Sunday (August 29), accompanies the release of the band’s widely-anticipated sophomore album, ‘Pebble House Vol. 1: Kuwaderno’, the follow-up to their 2019 debut record ‘Limasawa Street’.

The video for ‘Upuan’ follows the narrative of the track, which chronicles “the palpable romantic tension that arises from friendships that are formed by sitting next to each other, and the adventurous conversations that ensue”.

The ‘Upuan’ music video also follows its tease last week. The band took to social media to announce the video and their collaboration with Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano. “We heard you, Liwanag and Bubblies! We’ve been keeping this a secret but it’s finally happening,” the band said in a caption.

Ben&Ben first released ‘Upuan’ in May, as the first single of the upcoming album. The song was written by Miguel and Paolo Benjamin in 2019 in a Dumaguete hotel room while on tour.

Their new album’s second single ‘Magpahinga’ was released a week later, followed by ‘Pasalubong’ featuring singer Moira Dela Torre in late July, as well as ‘Sugat’ with Munimuni on August 13.
