There’s really no doubt that our local music is getting more attention and we can’t get enough of these fresh songs released by our local bands!

In these times of panic and paranoia, we can really calm ourselves by listening to new music. In line with that, OPM serves us again another set of these fresh songs that will not just give us good vibes but also an opportunity to discover and support our local music bands!

With that being said, here’s our OPM Disc for this week that listed some songs you might like!

After their hit single, ‘Balewala’, Brisom decided to composed an English song again. This four-pieced popwave outfit from Manila, Philippines, who has a modern retro sound with a mix of wide synth landscape and infectious melodic hooks, released a song that is all about reaching to someone in times of depression or fighting one’s demons and encouraging them to continue with their lives.  At times like this, a lot of us have undergone through tougher situations and their band hopefully can lend someone a hand through their song, ‘Choose’.

Moreover, their new single was produced by Brisom and DJ Joey SAntos with the help of Heinrich Bernabe and recorded by DJ Joey at Love one another sound production. Additionally, they will release the music video of their single on March 16 which was directed by Dominic Baekert of Zoopraxis studio. What’s more? This band is currently working on their upcoming album to be released under Viva Records at the latter part of this year.

You can follow them on their social media accounts for more updates and you can also listen to their new single on Spotify!

Baluarte is a five-piece funk-pop band that was founded last June 2018 from Indang, Cavite. With so much love for Music, Ariel Rodil and Ephraim Monterey formed the band and recruited Jay-r Alvarez, Jerico Arlan Crizaldo and Michael Tamayo later on.  Having their rich artistry with their craft, all of them wanted to inspire people and hopefully support also our OPM music.

In line with that, they released their new single ‘Tipo Kong Babae’ under Halfnote Music Production. You can share and stream also their single on Spotify!

Pangako ko’y ‘di kakalimutan
Pagsuyo ko sa’yo ay aking lihim
Tumatakbo ang oras, ako ba’y makikiusap

Sana’y mabigyan ng oras
Maiparamdam ang aking lihim na pag-ibig
