Project Orange is a four-piece Indie/Dream Pop Band based in Bacolod City, Philippines. The musicians started out as a group of young-ins whose friendship thrived by their love for music, the members: Diana Mapa (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Tin Pillado (Lead Guitar, Back-up Vocals), Martin Garces (Bass, Back-up Vocals) & Miggs San Miguel (Drums, Back-up Vocals).
Their first single, ‘Ctrl + Esc’ was released last October in the year 2018, which has garnered 30,000+ streams during its first 2 months on Spotify. The song was also featured in Spotify’s playlists, ‘New Music Friday Philippines’, ‘Pinoy Indie Mix’, and ‘Philippines Viral 50’.
Project Orange’s unique sound has caught the attention of several event productions that has given them the opportunity to be the opening act for one of the Philippines’ trail blazers in Indie Music (e.g. The Ransom Collective). The band plays in local music events in their city in hopes to spread this genre of music all throughout.
‘Sputnik Sweetheart’ was their second release which came out during the first quarter of 2020. It featured their classic indie dream pop sound evoking a familiar and relatable feeling of the starting and ending a relationship. On September, the band comes out again with another single, ‘Play, Pretend’, a song of hurt and uncertainties in a relationship. The single has already garnered 30,000+ streams, once again, in just less than two months since its release on Spotify.
