The quarantine has you cooped up at home and chances are high that you've passed the time by binge-watching the latest shows and movies, trying the latest coffee recipe, and yes, even working out. In the case of local indie-folk band Ben&Ben, their members seem to have turned to songwriting while in quarantine.Vocalist Miguel Benjamin Guico uploaded a rough version of the song "Nakikinig Ka Ba Sa Akin?" to the band's social media accounts.

The band hasn't mentioned an official release date for the song, but they did share the lyrics if you want to sing along!

The chorus goes: "Nakikinig ka ba sa akin? Hindi kita gustong awayin, pareho ang ating hangarin, and kadiliman ay basagin." With everything that happened in the last two weeks, a song about fighting together could be the little comfort you need to get through the quarantine.
