MYXclusive: REESE LANSANGAN On Her Surprise EP "Of Sound Mind & Memory"!

An artist who's as creative as Reese Lansangan always has something up her sleeeve. Last April 30, our former MYX Spotlight artist surprised everyone with the new EP Of Sound Mind & Memory!

The unannounced mini-album comprised of four acoustic tracks from the heart was released out of passion and love for the local music scene. The 26-year old indie sweetheart admits that she was pleasantly surprised with the reactions of her followers. It even trended organically on social media!

But that's not all, Reese also unleashed live performance videos for each track from Of Sound Mind & Memory which were shot during a trip to Baguio with her photographer friend Karen De La Fuente.

"People seem to really like the songs kahit na medyo yung iba 'yung sound from my first album," she said during our recent MYXclusive interview which you can watch below.

Aristophanes is a retelling of its namesake's speech from Plato's Symposium. Born out of a particularly unforgettable Theology lesson, this song is about pining for true love and how our whole lives are oriented towards finding our missing half.

Machines and Men tells the story of human life, from birth to death. We come into this world brand new and we get scarred, bruised, and tested as we grow up. As we live and learn, somewhere along the way we come to realize that we are not as strong and invincible as before. This song is about a body that observes itself adapting, developing, and eventually deteriorating over time.

For the Fickle is about wanting nothing more but a love that is steady, safe, and sure. It is about the compromises and excuses we make to cover for a half-hearted love that we keep accepting, but don't deserve.

Wildwood is a song about finding peace, joy, and contentment in realizing that you don't need much to truly live and feel alive. This was written during a profoundly unforgettable 2-week long vacation in New Zealand.
