During an OC Records press conference last month, De Castro explained that unlike her past songs, “Bank Holidays” is a lighter and more fun track.
“So very excited ako dito kasi ano ‘to eh, very different din sa mga past singles na ginawa ko. Like ‘yung last na ni-release ko ‘yung ‘Kapalaran,’ medyo may parang questioning about existence, ganyan, about purpose. Ito gusto ko lang talaga ng masaya, light na kanta. Siyempre sa nangyayari ngayon kailangan din natin ng balanse. Ang dami siyempreng mga hugot na mga kanta pero ito… hugot siya ng masayang memories,” she explained.
(I am so very excited for this because this is very different from my past singles. Like the last one I released, “Kapalaran” kind of questioned existence, purpose and all that. For this one, I really liked a light and fun tone. Of course, with what is happening now, we need to be balanced. Of course, there are lots of meanings behind this song, but these are things from fun memories.)
“’Yung ‘Bank Holiday’ mismo ay tungkol lang siya sa holiday ng mga taga-U.K. kung saan pwede silang lumabas, pwede silang mag-sunbathing sa park. So actually, noong sinusulat ko ‘to, nasa park ako tapos nag-o-observe lang ako ng mga tao,” De Castro added.
(“Bank Holiday” is really about the holidays of the British people, where they can go, where they can go sunbathing at the park. So actually, when I was writing this, I was at the park and I was just observing other people.)
De Castro, who attended music school in London, got engaged to Irish boyfriend David Rainey last Christmas Eve in Ireland, where they spent the holidays. /ra
