Nu metal band Saydie release new music video [Philippines]

A year and a half after their last music video release, Manila, Philippines based nu metal band Saydie has released the music video for the song “Yokai”, the first single from their upcoming third album. The video was conceptualized by director Avid Liongoren, known for the 2016 feature film Saving Sally, and Manny Angeles of Twenty Manila. “It’s a dirty video about abuse and revenge” said vocalist Kat Taylor regarding the video’s premise. “It’s about someone who has a hatred of men because of the actions of an abuser, and how she gets even.”

“Yokai” prominently displays Saydie’s early 2000s nu metal musical influences, with a sound driven by seven string guitars, industrial synthesizers, and subversive lyrics. The song is also the band’s first collaboration with a guest musician, vocalist Ian Tayao (Wilabaliw, Queso), who also appears in the video. Director Avid Liongoren is a returning collaborator, having also directed the music video for the band’s first music video “Krolithika.” is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
