If you are looking for some modern OPM songs infused with that funky 80s retro synthwave vibe, then Brisom is the band that you are looking for! Formed 6 years ago in 2013, this four-piece soulful band is hailing from the capital of the country, Manila.
When you listen Brisom‘s music, you can actually kind of imagine them playing for the famous series Stranger Things. Some of their more popular songs are a rendition of the classic ‘Sana Dalawa ang Puso Ko’ and their original ‘Balewala’.

2. The Espasouls
According to their logo, The Espasouls is a band made of Groove, Spice, and Everything Nice. Moreover, they are a soul collective with a funky, jazzy, groovy blues sound.
They often play live, slaying their sets in special stages often dedicated to nights of blues and soul. They don’t have an official YouTube account or Spotify yet, but some of their songs are on Soundcloud. Check their tracks by clicking here.
Meanwhile, watch their take on some 90s music below as they perform a groovy and heavenly medley set of songs.
Based on the video above, they are just otherworldly. Those 10 minutes were literally music to our ears! We just can’t wait to see The Espasouls live in one of their performances.
3. Giniling Festival
Self-proclaimed as the ‘Most Dangerous Band in the Philippines’, Giniling Festival perfectly looks the part. Based on the photo above, they all really seem badass! Moreover, their music itself is badass.
Categorized under heavy metal, most of Giniling Festival‘s songs really make us head-bang until our necks hurt. Check out their top tracks on Spotify below.
Among those that we heard so far, ‘Bidjokol’ is our favorite!
If you are looking for more rock music to listen to, you should check out EAAASY! We have listened to their latest drop ‘Lunatiko’ last time, and we really liked their song! Formed with 6 members, they started making music in 2016.
Honestly, our personal favorite is ‘Baler’! Listen to their top tracks below.
Cheats is an 8-piece feisty band with upbeat, celebratory music. Moreover, they can easily be identified by the beautiful harmonies that their two female vocalists create. Formed in 2013, the band got its name from the group’s collective love for video games.
