         The song is about waiting - waiting for someone special to arrive, to return, to come home. Its hopeful lyrics talk about patience and the eager anticipation to reunite with that someone. More importantly, the song beautifully reminds us to make the most out of the time we have together with this person.DAPIT-HAPON is written and performed by Jem. The song with Jem’s soothing voice also features calming guitar-oriented melody which may have been unknowingly influenced by her father. Seeing her dad do classic haranas when she was growing up was her introduction and inspiration for her love of music.The song is produced by Eunice Jorge of Gracenote and released under Soupstar Music. It is now available in all digital streaming platforms.Jem is an acoustic singer-songwriter from Lucban, Quezon. Her passion for music made her come to Manila and cross paths with Soupstar Music where she started as an intern. Later on, she eventually became part of the management’s digital team. While she does content work for Soupstar artists such as 6cyclemind, Moonstar88, Gracenote, and Banda ni Kleggy, Jem gets discovered by Soupstar head Darwin Hernandez for her musical talent. Nervous but excited, she is now ready to face this new adventure.Dapit-Hapon links: Spotify: https://spoti.fi/3pSTzPA Apple Music: https://apple.co/35kq1CS Lyric Video: https://youtu.be/-XpRkrg4llA

    EVEN is ascertained to unfasten and prove their unique sonic tune, and they are now back with the much-anticipated acoustic version of "Dolores." Following the undying demand for this version of “Dolores”, at long last, it will finally be heard on January 14, 2022 as a result of EVEN's response to the earnest fans: "Ever since we released the studio and rock version, maraming nag re-request ng acoustic version. That’s why, ginawa namin talaga ito for the supporters."    EVEN has been flourishing on the ground of pinoy rock for over a decade now. Anyone would lose count of how colossal their achievements are, including being the 2008 grand champion of every pinoy rocker’s stage — the Red Horse Beer Muziklaban. The band consists of four compelling artists, namely Jam Bumanlag on guitars, Dan Allan Acosta on drums, JL Siscar on bass, and KD Dasco — the band’s new vocalist, who has just joined the act in 2020 but has been adding a new color of outstanding charisma to Even’s identity.      As a matter of fact, Dolores is the band's first song for which KD came forth in writing the lyrics as the new vocalist. To all intents and purposes, the song was supposed to set off in this version, which according to EVEN is "more earthy and acoustic guitar based." However, along the process of making the single, they met halfway to adhere to their metal rock circumference.   As per Jam Bumanlag, "Dolores" was a chapel he often used to visit when he was in his younger years in Pampanga, where he originally came from. In essence, the name ‘Dolores’ means, "Our Lady of Sorrows."   EVEN gives the game away, as the song will unarguably give out a breathing space of refreshing sense that is quite new to the ears from their usual hard, weighty sound. It is not a run-off at the mouth that the 4-piece electronic metal act is widely famous for their fx pedal tunes, which are their trademark, whether it may be in studio or live. More than this, Even is known for their wild and prodigious song arrangements, which cling to the wavelength of their adroit style of maneuvering the instruments.   This time, the band disclosed that they did not use an effects unit for the song. Henceforth, the members are interested and stirred by hearing what the listeners have to say and are hopeful that the fans will find it stimulating and restoring.   On the 14th of this month, “Dolores” will be available on your favorite digital music platforms.

    Before the end of the year, the era of thirstily waiting for Chelsea Alley has finally winded down to a border, as the birth of their first single becomes an anthem for Filipino rock audiences.  The band's "Heneral," without a single doubt, escorts a sentient tribute for the late Jamir Garcia, whose legacy and memories are bred-in-the-bone to their hearts, bringing the melancholic, powerful, yet wonderstruck feeling. The song emanates ear-grabbing and hypnotic lyrics, embodying raw and deep-rooted emotions that clearly carry through its intended message for the “Heneral” — even holding you a touch of nostalgic feeling of remembering the times when you were facing Slapshock in front of the audience. In some such way, the listeners were able to hear Chelsea Alley's first single, that flows down an emotional closure for the late Jamir. As the chorus bids: “Paalam na / Hindi ka na mag-iisa sa dusa / Paalam na / Ako na ang bahala / Masakit mang ika’y mawala.” Listen here:In a nutshell, "Heneral" outperformed everyone's expectations for Chelsea Alley. The rhythm figures' tapping, bolstered by their sharp and neat riffs, results in a killer hook that visibly demonstrates the band's dexterity. Sonically, the tempo of the drums was panned hard right, reinforcing depth and dynamism. The song's arrangements were balanced beautifully with the crazy and implausible vocal transitions of John Borja, from hardcore scream to melodic voice. All-embracing, Chelsea Alley’s “Heneral” received so much love from listeners who could not hold back their anticipation for the band’s nearest live stage performance. With all the support, the members transport their warm appreciation for the fans. Like and follow Chelsea Alley’s social media accounts to get the latest from them! Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/Chelsea.Alle...Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/[email protected]: @chelseaalleyphYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/c/ChelseaAlleyPHTwitter: @Chelsea.Alley.PH

      The singles of Sunil Dholwani, popularly known as the Orphan-Freakshow, can now be streamed on all digital platforms.   After recently signing with Rakista Records, Orphan-Freakshow has become more geared up to carve his material in a manner that is as solid as stone. Pilot your ears to be enveloped with the spirit of his alter-ego, inasmuch as his all four songs are now available in any digital streaming platforms — Filth, Filthier, Freakshow=me, and his latest song Love Lust — all evoke similarities falling under his signature riffs, sound structure, and insane lyrical content that trap you into the circus world, identical to the force of his psyche. Something that will draw anyone into his soul’s bizarre depthness.    See it here:  LoveLust - https://ingrv.es/lovelust-z9d-d Filth (Freako’s Uncut Version) - https://ingrv.es/filth-tz2-e Filthier (feat. Deda Willet) - https://ingrv.es/filthier-8c9-c Freakshow=Me - https://ingrv.es/freakshow-me-h86-e   It has been an uphill climb journey packed with rich experiences for Sunil Dholwani, where challenges were met and extremes were encountered. In the face of the ball and chain that laid havoc in his path, Sunil was able to break the back of the beast, supplying him with the light of hope to keep coming back to where his remedy is, music.    At the same time, he has not forgotten to acknowledge the people who have helped and supported his back throughout the process of creating and releasing his music — including his team Asylum Freaks, producer Ero Pelaez, Jan Fernandes, Obodakrop, and his label Rakista Records. More than being a musician, Sunil dedicates everything to his father, who gave him hope during the vague times of stumbling blocks to not lose his footing.    Orphan-Freakshow will continue to be the persona whose music sends freaks down your spine.
