Bulacan-based indie/twee pop band The Gentle Isolation took their sweet time (almost 9 years!) before releasing new music today. “Alone For A While” is wonderful pop tune that sounds utterly timeless and harkens the great indie pop/new wave era of the 80s and 90s. Trademark jangle guitars with lush instrumentations of strings and horns by the author Monch Cristobal makes a heavenly bed for Ness Urian’s gentle vocals.

“Alone For A While” will be the first promotional track for their upcoming album. In the meantime, you can still enjoy their 2010 EP “It Started With An April Shower.”

The highly anticipated new music from the recently reformed Filipino indie pop stalwarts Orange & Lemons.
The single is expected to appear in all digital stores and streaming sites worldwide on December 8 and is now available for pre-order on iTunes under Lilystars Records.
Dreamy sound scape, delicate vocals and lush guitar work over a driving rhythm section. Lovers Go, Lovers Come is reminiscent of the band’s early guitar pop sound with distinct refinements.
The reformed trio hails from the province of Bulacan and is now composed of guitarist and vocalist Clem Castro, bassist JM Del Mundo and drummer Ace Del Mundo. Active from 1999 to 2007, Orange & Lemons were able to release three exceptional and award-winning albums reaching gold and platinum status before a decade long hiatus. 2017 marks the year of their return to the music scene.
Lovers Go, Lovers Come is a prelude to their forthcoming project — the 15th Anniversary Re-Updated first album “Love in the Land of Rubber Shoes & Dirty Ice Cream” scheduled for release on February 2018 supported by a crowdfunding campaign via Pledgemusic. Pre-Order the album to get an advance copy of the single. For more info, follow this link: https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/orangeandlemons
