I have been a fan of Pinoy Indie music since my high school days. I liked bands who plays underground music and bands that doesn't go with the flow of the mainstream.
My usual bands generally fall under alternative rock, "power-punk", reggae and ska. Yet slowly, the bands I've loved drifted to the dark shadows and went to the limelight.
For the past two years I have been stucked to Taken by Cars’ music which the band describes their music as a mixture of electro, shoegaze and new wave.
Last year, my boyfie introduced bands I have never heard of. (I’ll post another blog about those) Well, for me I think that’s a good idea for them not going with the flow of mainstream because that makes them unique and hardcore. (no offense to the bands in the mainstream)
Recently, I bumped into Kissa, a good old friend of mine back during my gradeschool days. Music has been her passion even before, so having a band at this age is not a shock for me. It amazed me that she created a good music with her band, The Larkhouse Project.
