    Icy and spicy, Fridge releases their brand new single "Auto Parts" under Ivory Music & Video and is now available on all digital platforms. The song was mixed and mastered by Jam Bumanlag of Nineworkz Productions.     "Auto Parts could be a song of any kind of heartbreak (romantically and in any form, actually) without looking pitiful, being cheesy, or saying or begging for attention. It takes pride, anger, revenge, and a little bit of craziness from all sections, started from the instrument up to the lyrics and the whole content of the song," said the band's very own frontman, Franz Santiago.     "Auto Parts" was also featured in the "Toast or Roast" podcast hosted by former DJs from NU107 Francis Brew Reyes (of The Dawn and Peso Movement) and Kim Marvilla, a few weeks ago wherein they critic up-and-coming local artists. The band earned some positive comments from the hosts together with a couple of special guests from The Cover Collective, Eric Hotchkiss of Auburn Anne, and Wacky Acosta of Halik Ni Gringo. They see the band (Fridge) as a breath of fresh air from the local scene. A Post-Rock band with a great balance of soothing vocals powered by two-handed riffs with unpredictable basslines, and punchy breakdowns.     Fridge at "Toast Or Roast" with Francis Brew Reyes and Kim Marvilla starts at 1:17:30   FRIDGE is a four-piece Alternative Rock / Post Rock / Experimental band formed in January 2019 with members; Franz Santiago on guitar and vocals, Mathew Santos on lead guitar, Steve Ducay on bass, and Bryan Victoria on drums, all hailing from San Mateo, Rizal.       From “Ball is Life” to “Food is Life”, the band got their name from the refrigerator, where all great things like food and booze come from — hence “FRIDGE.” Despite having different influences such as indie, pop, new wave, math rock, emo, and metal, they find their common ground with their passion for rock music that gives them an advantage in creating unique and realistic music.   You can follow them on their socials below: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fridgemusicph Instagram: @fridgemusicph Fridge Pilipinas on Spotify: https://spoti.fi/33MyOKM FridgeMusicPH on YouTube: https://bit.ly/2KKpoHW

    Fearlessly driven by his commitment to blur genre lines and infuse eclectic production with pop sensibilities, Fern. has quickly established himself as a formidable multi-hyphenate in less than three years since his arrival in the music industry. Aside from writing and producing tracks for some of the biggest indie, R&B, and pop artists of this generation, he made songs of his own that serve as vessels for confessional intimacy.     After landing a place on PARADISE RISING’s globally renowned mixtape, semilucent and amassing more than 20 million streams on Spotify, the acclaimed singer-songwriter /producer is ready to break new grounds with the release of his new single ‘Whatever This Is’ under Island Records Philippines.     Produced by fern., prolific electronic artist similarobjects and experimental beatsmith VINCED, ‘Whatever This Is’ is an R&B jam that is about diving into some sort of relationship without fully committing to it. Meticulously arranged with quiet storm beats and sleek minimalism, fern.’s latest song delves into a level of showmanship that isn’t tied to theatrics and drama; instead, he pulls off a balance between unguarded moments and emotional honesty to create one of the most compelling work of his career.     Fern reflects, “The song was written about a personal experience of mine. Music has always been my way of facing my emotions and coming to terms with them. ‘Whatever This Is’ is one of those songs that was made just because I wanted to let go of certain emotions and be okay with whatever I was feeling at the moment.”   The stars align in fern.’s favor as he continues to embrace his crossover potential without losing his credibility and interest to make something gold out of the ordinary. Taking into consideration the recording process behind the song, fern. admits that he produced the beat first before writing the lyrics of ‘Whatever This Is.’ The multi-talented artist shares, “After producing the beat, I recorded the song with my friends and they helped me a bit with the song production.”   The collaborative experience resulted into a slow-burning anthem that not only treats emotional openness as a rite of passage, but also something that is worth celebrating to. “I don't really think about my songs in this way so I can’t really tell what makes it different and what makes it cut above the rest,” says fern. “My songs are basically just the product of my emotions and they all represent the different stages that I go through in life.”   fern.’s ‘Whatever This Is’ is available now on all digital and streaming platforms worldwide via Island Records Philippines.   About Fern. Fern. is a music producer and songwriter from Manila, Philippines. He is known for his debut single ‘Into You’ (2017), another notable single ‘Lie 2 Me’ from his first self-titled EP, and his award-winning collaborative track with Julie Anne San Jose, ‘Down on Me.’ He is also known for co-writing and co-producing ‘You,’ Claudia Barretto’s second single.     In 2019, he released his debut album Loveless. The album contained ‘Sweet’ and ‘Look Into My Eyes,’ collaborative tracks that feature Kiana Valanciano and Leila Alcasid respectively. He has then released three more singles: ‘Want U Bad,’ ‘Blinded,’ and ‘Angel Eyes.’ His song ‘Kaori’ was also included in 88rising’s debut album semilucent.

    Zack Tabudlo returns with a bright, ‘80’s pop-inspired number about a girl who gives hints of love and interest, but is afraid of commitment. Released today via Island Records Philippines, his latest single ‘Elizabeth’ was loosely inspired by his admiration for Liza Soberano; hence, the title’s relation to the actress’ real name outside of showbiz.Zack admits that it was actually Liza who got him into songwriting at a young age. “I wrote a ton of songs about her starting out until I paved my way to writing through my personal experiences,” the Nangangamba singer confesses. “She's such an inspiration to a lot of people including me, who got started with a craft I love to do.” A Fictional AccountFrom a lyrical standpoint, ‘Elizabeth’ puts accurately into words Zack’s frustration about unrequited love, and how the most interesting pieces of music come from a place of romantic uncertainty and youthful sentiment. “The song is about a person who gives you mixed feelings, showing interests but throws you off from time to time,” Zack adds.As a fictional account that exists in the writer and producer’s fevered imagination, ‘Elizabeth’ gives us a different side of Zack that we haven’t heard of: a distinct range, a flair for infectious storytelling, and a way with words.An Earworm Of A TrackWith its pulsating beats and retro-futurist sheen, Zack shares that his new song is heavily indebted to the new wave hits of the ‘80s, rendering the earworm of a track a colorful, fun exterior. “It's my first time releasing a song with this style and it's been fun,” the young producer and singer-songwriter said. “I wanted to go for something mellow having the foundation from the original one but has a ‘slow dance’ feel to it instead of going full ballad.”For his part, Zack incorporates a lot of personal modified samples for the drum tracks and a lot of 80s synths and effects. The aesthetic move allows the eclectic artist to explore sounds outside of his comfort zone, and experiment with outsider ideas that don’t necessarily subscribe to conventional music-making.Zack Tabudlo’s ‘Elizabeth is out now in all digital platforms worldwide via MCA Music Inc.  About Zack Tabudlo Zack Tabudlo is an alt-pop RnB artist from Manila, Philippines. He hit the ground running when he began his music career, becoming a finalist for reality talent show Talentadong Pinoy at the age of 10. He was a contestant for the voice kids season 1, and had a stint as a member of youth singing group GRAVITY, and one half of teen pop duo Zack and Fritz.When it comes to music production, Zack has certainly earned his stripes. Under the mentorship of Vehnee Saturno and Chris Anthony Vinzons of Sonic States Studio, Zack continued to hone his techniques and sensibilities.Among his influences are contemporary pop chart-toppers Shawn Mendes, Harry Styles, and Island Records label mate Charlie Puth. But Zack approaches the genre of pop with his own distinct approach. His artistry can be characterized as a tasteful blend of R&B, soft rock, funk and vocally driven pop.With a slew of catchy singles under his belt, all leading up to what’s looking to be a promising full-length in the future, the young musician is gaining momentum. His hustle may have been riding below the radar, but one can expect 2021 to be Zack’s year.
