In 2017, one of the country’s remarkable bands, Orange and Lemons, reunited after a decade-long hiatus. Minus one of their former vocalists, band members Glem Castro (vocals/guitars), JM Del Mundo (bass) and Ace Del Mundo (drums) and new recruit Jared Nerona (keyboard) committed to preserve their legacy in the music industry. (Ay, ako pagkain lang kaya kong ipreserve!)

“This time mas choosy na kami, mas interesting pa ang tugtog,” Glem said. “Mas nakakapagexperimento na kami ngayon.” (Di nako choosy pag kayo kasama ko!)

Their reunion became more interesting when young actress Kathryn Bernardo used their song “Just like a splendid love song” for her birthday video message for boyfriend, young actor Daniel Padilla. Kathryn even invited them to perform live for Daniel’s surprise party. (Ay, surprise nyo rin ako mga bro!)

“Nakakatuwa sila kasi paborito nila yung mga kanta namin. At yung mainvite kami para kay DJ, masaya.” Glem shared. (Pakisabi love ko si DJ!)

One of their reunion projects is “re-producing” their very first album to give it new flavor. (Wala ba tayong duet dyan, mga bro!)

“Hindi ito re-mastered, as in, nirecord namin ulit lahat ng songs. May mga bagay kasi kami na di gusto noon sa album. May mga di kami nagawa. Kaya eto ginawa na namin, gusto namin,” Glem explained. (May gusto ako gawin na kasama kayo, mga bro!)

They also plan to produce an all-Tagalog album. (Mag-dedicate kayo sakin ng isang kanta!)

The Pinoy pop rock band is promoting their latest single “ Pag-ibig sa Tabing Dagat.” (Ay, love story ng sirena!)

“Nahalungkat ko lang yan recently, naisulat nayan matagal na. naisubmit ko yan sa isang record label, pero di ginamit. Istorya yan ng isang friend kong babae na dating anchor sa TV, naikwento nya sakin yung isang experience nya about this certain guy na nabuo ang pag-ibig nila sa isang tabing dagat. Ganun ako, nagnanakaw ako ng idea, halimbawa may kinuwento ka sakin, naiisipan ko ng kanta.” (Ay, marami akong ikukuwento sayo, bro!)
