North Star Boys Tell Us All About Their New Song 'SUNSHINE'
Asian-American pop group North Star Boys need to be on everyone's radar.
Founded by brothers Oliver and Sebastian Moy, the seven-member group has gained popularity all over the world since their debut in the music scene, and here at Sweety High, we're big fans of anything the band comes out with. When we found out they were releasing a new song and music video called "SUNSHINE," we just had to learn more.
The music video comes out next week, but in the meantime, there is a lyric video to get us by. Continue below to get a look at what North Star Boys told us about their new song "SUNSHINE!"
The Story Behind 'SUNSHINE'
Oliver Moy: The story behind the music video for "SUNSHINE" is actually how the North Star Boys came together to begin with. We all came from different backgrounds and lives. Not many of us came from a good life, either. Many of us experienced family troubles, hard times and trials growing up. That is the symbolization of the "Workshop" in the music video. After coming together, we decided to leave our troubles behind and start NSB to achieve a similar dream and also inspire others to do great things.
The Process Behind the Music Video
Oli: I've put a lot of thought into what I want the music video for "SUNSHINE" to be, from creating the map that Justin used, the shot list and even the outfits for all the members. My favorite part about the making of the music video has to be performing on a bed of a truck. We were going about 25 mph and I remember almost losing balance a couple of times so the members were holding my feet down as I stood up to perform on a moving vehicle.
Sebastian Moy: We had an early morning shoot. It felt like we were going on a field trip. We had to wake up at 3 a.m. Filming went very smoothly and we're very pleased with the results.
What 'SUNSHINE' Means
Regie Macalino: For me personally, I was raised in the Philippines for half of my life and it's always been an interest of mine to incorporate my roots when it comes to music. The music video for "SUNSHINE," was a special moment for me and the boys to shine light on the country I grew up in and inspire my fellow Filipino friends and followers to embrace our culture and not be afraid of being different.
Oli: My "SUNSHINE" is the North Star Boys and Stars (the fans). It's what gets me up in the morning. Without the Stars, I wouldn't be where I am today, I'm forever grateful for this journey and all the memories and experiences that come along with it.
North Star Boys' Favorite Lyrics
Oli: I would have to say my favorite lyric from "SUNSHINE" is, "I love it when I can feel your touch, shaking up the walls that I've built for months." I've been heartbroken once and I never believed I would love again, but sometimes a special person comes into your life and shakes up the walls that you've built so high to protect yourself. Once that person is in your life, you become very grateful that you allowed yourself to open up and love again.
Seb: "I'll wait the sunrise, to make that smile shine." This is my favorite lyric because it does the dedication and passion you can have for your significant other.
Regie: "You are my sunshine." When I hear this lyric, I think about someone very special to me.
Darren Liang: "Girl, I love it when I can feel your touch." I am a person whose love language is physical touch so it's very relatable.
Ryan Nguyen: "You make my mood right." Because it reminds me of the feeling I get when I am around that one special person.
Justin Phan: "You make my tongue tie." It just hits different.
Kane Ratan: "Where have you been I'm dying in the devil's den." It's my favorite because you don't know what I've been through, saying that someone is my happiness.
