November 21, 2018 UDOU Team
Are you ready for one of the finest rising hugot bands in the Ph today? Get to know CHNDTR and know how hugot-core came to be!
There are many genres in the OPM scene and a lot of new ones are emerging today. Of course, that comes with the ever-changing world that we live in. One thing’s for sure tho. We’ll never run out of hugoteras and hugoteros in the Ph. And CHNDTR probably has the perfect hugot songs for you! They didn’t start the genre hugot-core for nothing.
Who is CHNDTR?
CHNDTR is a 4 piece band formed April 2016. The band is composed of Chin Detera (Guitarist/Lead Vocals), Eric JP (Lead Guitarist/Backing Vocals), Sean de Leon (Bassist), and Benjo Criste (Drummer). It all started in college. 2016, Chin and Eric were schoolmates and loved jamming together, later on, they’ve decided to form a band. They had some of their friends to audition for the remaining parts to fill for the band. After a month, Sean and Benjo completed CHNDTR. The same year, they won Grand Champion in Deli Music Festival Battle of the Bands 2016 by Robinsons Supermarket. Can this band get any more awesome?!
What is Hugot-core?
In an interview they’ve had before, they jokingly said that their style was hugot-core since most of their songs has so much feels to it. Ever since then, it stuck with the band and their fans and eventually became their very own genre. Talk about individuality. Kudos to the band making their own identity!
If you’re in search for that swak hugot song here’s a list of songs in their first album Habang Umuulan.
- Babalik Ka Pa Ba
- Walang Iba
- S.I.L – 8-Bit Version
- Babalik Ka Pa Ba – Valentine’s Day Version
Listen to all of them, they’re pretty bomb! Here’s our personal favorite.
Right. In. The. Feels.
