‘Medisina’ is Zild’s third album within the last three years, and was released in October following the preview singles ‘Isang Anghel’, ‘Duwag’, and ‘Duda’.

Speaking to NME’s Khyne Palumar on ‘Dekada ‘70’, the songwriter highlighted its conceptualisation as an accessible exploration of political themes, stating: “It’s a sensitive topic that I feel I can only talk about through music, especially with people who don’t share the same beliefs. People don’t want to be preached to, so if there’s a way to keep things light, it’s maybe better to go, ‘here’s vanilla ice cream’.”

Zild began his music career as the bassist and frontman of celebrated indie pop band IV Of Spades, which also feature guitarist Blaster Silonga and drummer Badjao de Castro. Their debut album ‘CLAPCLAPCLAP!’ was released in 2019, which included future viral hit ‘Come Inside Of My Heart’.

Following the announcement of a hiatus, Zild released his bedroom pop-inflected solo debut ‘Homework Machine’, which was later highlighted as NME’s second-best album of 2020. His sophomore album ‘Huminga’ was released the following year in April, and was also highlighted as one of NME’s best albums of 2021.
