    Four-piece alternative rock band Fridge is set to release their debut EP "Defrosting Emotions" on Friday, November 15, 2019, and it’s gonna be as real as it gets.     Recorded, mixed, and mastered at Nineworkz Productions, the album was teased to be focused on exhausting all your feelings; as each song has a story to tell and an emotional ride to take part in—songs about being lied to, getting played on, always seeing the good in someone, being grateful for the joy and experiences shared, and finding home in your person.   HOW FRIDGE CAME TO BE   Fridge was formed on January 2019 with Franz Santiago on guitar and vocals, Mateo Santos on lead guitar, Steve Ducay on bass, and Bryan Estandian on drums, all hailing from San Mateo, Rizal.     From “Ball is Life” to “Food is Life” the band got their name from (what else other than) a 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.     Their debut EP "Defrosting Emotions" will be out on digital platforms this Friday, November 15, 2019, followed by a gig launch on December 6, 2019, at Custom Thread, Don Antonio, Commonwealth, Quezon City.     For more info and updates you can check them out on their social media accounts: FB: https://www.facebook.com/fridgemusicph/ IG: @fridgemusicph YT: https://bit.ly/2HLLLw1   #FridgeMusicPH #LocalGrind #Fridge #DefrostingEmotions

What’s important to us is that people get to listen to the song.” “It’s always also a great feeling when listeners interpret the song in their own ways and find a connection to the song somehow,” vocalist and guitarist Nikka Melchor shares the same sentiment. “Knowing that we love this song and that we put a lot of work into it is enough to not feel worried.” What's next for the vowels they orbit Now signed to Sony Music Philippines, the vowels they orbit are set to release an EP soon.

    Fresh from reaping prominent spots on international music festivals such as Hong Kong’s Clockenflap and Austin’s SXSW Festival, Ben&Ben is ready to smash their way to global domination with their accessible but compelling brand of folk, world music, alternative, blues, and indie rock. To date, the nine-piece supergroup has accumulated nearly 500 million streams on all online and digital platforms worldwide, making them one of the most streamed Filipino acts of all time Their debut album, Limasawa Street was released a few months ago to positive acclaim, earning astonishing praises from publications such as Business Mirror, which called the latest release “an instant classic” and Status Magazine, which went to greater lengths to rave about the album for being “a musical masterpiece and a visual experience.” As of the moment, the full-length record has produced two well-received singles under its belt: the groovy smash “Pagtingin,” which topped the Spotify and Youtube streaming charts for several months since its debut and the radio hit “Araw-Araw.” With 2019 propelling the folk-pop band to A-list status, it’s remarkable to witness Ben&Ben churn out a new era outside of Limasawa Street with the surprise release of the latest single “Masyado Pang Maaga.” Dropped on the first day of November, the fresh new track is a glorious return to form: a restrained but intricately conceived beauty that arrives with the same effortlessness as all their best songs. What sets it apart from anything that they have done before is the inspiration behind the ornate displays, the relatable story that points to previously unexplored direction. “When I was writing the song, I was inspired by a very personal experience and frustration of why people struggle so much to communicate and understand each other these days,” guitarist and vocalist Miguel Guico shares. “Why do people decide to be silent and walk away instead of confront each other and talk about things? Hopefully the song can accompany people who go through the same thing, whether it be in their own personal experience or in their family and friends' experiences.” Produced by Paolo Guico and the band together with Jean-Paul Verona, and written by the Benjamin brothers, “Masyado Pang Maaga” might be included in the deluxe version of Limasawa Street, a move that is currently being discussed by Ben&Ben’s team. With the song being thematically different from the ones in the latest record, Ben&Ben decided to put it on hold instead of including it in the 13-track album. “Writing-wise, Limasawa Street is full of songs filled with messaging of hope, of looking up towards the fact that things will be better,” guitarist and vocalist Paolo Guico adds. “However we felt that there was a need for a song that accompanies the listener in frustration.” With its lush arrangements leaning toward something more intimate and less overpowering, the latest song is a proof of their staying power as musicians who continue to evolve and make music that soars beyond expectations. Ben&Ben’s “Masyado Pang Maaga” is now available on all streaming and download platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, and Deezer via Sony Music Philippines. Stream "Masyado Pang Maaga" here:

      On the eve of the Halloween festivities, pop alternative band Room for Cielo premiered their music video for their single ‘Hanggang Dito’—and it’s a haunting depiction of how relationships fail.   Directed by Silver Belen, the music video showed a once happy couple during one of their fights and how it led to the coldness once they reached the place they call ‘home’. The silence between them was rough to bear and justified their complications as a couple.   Watch the music video for ‘Hanggang Dito’ here:
