Clique5 has only been in the music scene for four months now, but the all-male group already has an eponymous debut album out and, by next week, a major concert under its belt.
The members, from ages 17 to 20 years old, are Karl the “Campus Heart Throb,” Marco the ”The Hunk,” Sean the “Kilabot ng Dance Floor,” Josh the “Cutie Bae,” Clay the “Soul Balladeer,” Tim the “Teen Crush,” and Rocky the “Boy Next Door.”
The group is under 3:16 Events and Talent Management Company and all of their songs on the album are written by director Joven Tan, including the promotional song “Pwede Ba, Teka Muna.”
“Masaya po kami sa opportunity na binigay sa amin,” Clay said at a recent press conference.
Rocky noted they will not rest on their laurels as “siyempre kailangang mag-exert ng mas maraming effort para masuklian.”
Clique5 members consider each other “like family.” This is reflected in their name as clique means “a small group of people who share the same interest” while five is a symbol of “balance.”
So, what sets them apart from other boy bands, we asked. They said it’s their “unity.”
While each of them knows how to sing, dance and act, they perform together as a unit. They are taking different workshops to continuously hones their skills. Even this early, it has borne fruit as they were recently made
Gawad Musika 2017 Awardee for being the Outstanding Boy Band in the recent 37th Year Ender Top Consumers Choice Awards.
Asked to describe their music, it’s the kind that “kahit anong generation makaka-relate – millennial, mga magulang, mga lolo at lola,” Rocky said.
Their major concert on Feb. 27 at Music Museum is titled “Clique V Live.”
