Review from The Sound Desk: "BINI's "Golden Arrow", 3rd Single from iTunes PH's number one album, "Born to Win"

"Grab the ice cream, go turn the clock Dance till midnight, nobody knock..."

When Mikha of leading female P-Pop group BINI rapped these lines from "Golden Arrow," the third single from their debut album, "Born to Win," the ladies made no mistake about being dead serious... about having fun.  

For sure, Aiah, Colet, Maloi, Gwen, Stacey, Mikha, Sheena and Jhoanna are having the time of their lives right now: B2W has peaked at number one on iTunes Philippines' Top Album Chart with 12 of its tracks making the list of the top 15 songs.  It's more than just an auspicious debut; it's phenomenal.  And the single, "Golden Arrow" captures the essence of the ladies' massive appeal.

Singer-songwriter SAB reacts to the "Golden Arrow" music video

Penned surprisingly by young indie singer-songwriter SAB (who just released her own six-track EP, "Sunsets & Heaven" back in July), "Golden Arrow" is disco pop, quite different from the acoustic ballads that SAB is known for.  Showing her range as a songwriter, SAB - a self-professed Bloom - flavored the melody with smooth synths and bass lines guaranteed to move your feet and bop your head. It's a clean and crisp piece of retro dance pop with a groovy hook.

The result? A playful, throwback-inspired sound and music video where BINI transforms their slumber party into a discotheque with addictive energy, matching positive vibes and glowing confidence.  In short: it's a perfect track to blast away pandemic blues.  And don't we all need that right now?
