“Experience a journey of conflicts and awakening, as we transcend human nature and embrace spirituality.”
“Fi-Né is preparing to release their highly anticipated album titled ‘The Awakening’ on June 30, 2023. In addition to the involvement of multiple Grammy-winning and GMA-winning instrumentalists and engineers, the album features talented upcoming artists like L8ching and Mandark. It showcases exceptional talent and expertise, exploring the profound connection and empathy between individuals and the broader world, encompassing the universe and all aspects of existence. Delving into the complexities of our modern society, the album poses a thought-provoking question: In a scenario where someone possesses extensive knowledge in literature, art, craftsmanship, and technology, and also struggles with pressing social issues like widening wealth gaps and moral decline, should we opt for embracing progressive technology or seek solace in our roots, reconnecting with our inherent humanity and divinity?”
“The Awakening” album seamlessly blends punk rock, electronic, rap-rave, and trip-hop genres, incorporating a few elements of house, R&B, and dub reggae, among others. Fi-Né, with Philip’s distinctive and versatile rhythms, Suzy’s ethereal vocals, experimental melodies, and sensual R&B tones, creates a truly unique musical experience. Each song in the album unfolds as part of a continuous story, encompassing initial self-awareness, the struggles and casualties encountered along the way, and ultimately, a message of hope. The album’s overarching goal is to foster a world free from misunderstandings, wars, and the limitations imposed by time and materialism. It aims to inspire change driven by love, living in a fifth dimension brimming with light and trust.
This album not only had a digital release but also simultaneously released a physical cassette tape version, aiming to take listeners on a journey back to the 1970s with the nostalgic and melodic sound of cassette players. It aimed to convey the significance of the era and encourage people to appreciate the beauty already present in their lives. The album consists of eight songs, accompanied by Suzy-designed AR virtual scenery cards. By scanning these cards, users could project new images, symbols, and artwork onto their mobile phones, creating a collection that encapsulates the unique world of Fi-Né’s musical imagination.
