The Gentle Isolation
Indie pop outfit, The Gentle Isolation revisits the eternal appeal of their music favorites on their latest single under Lilystar Records, “Sound Wave”. Hailed from Bulacan, the four-piece band-is composed of Ness Urian (vocals and acoustic guitar), Monch Cristobal (bass, guitars, synths), Bach Rudica (drums) as core members, and Rommel Vivar (live guitar player), Law Santiago (live bass player) as session players.
They released their critically acclaimed first EP “It Started With An April Shower” in 2010 showcasing bright blend of jangly guitars, established instrumental hooks, and addictive pop melodies. Now back with their newest effervescent twee-pop anthem offering “Sound Wave” which was written in 2014, The Gentle Isolation pays homage to the obscure pop icons that inspired them to make music.
“Our latest track is an ode to the music that we held dear like one of our close friends: they come and go because of the inevitable proliferation of trends, but they’ll remain special in our hearts,” guitarist and vocalist Monch Cristobal says.
In writing and producing “Sound Wave”, the band cites New Order, The Stone Roses, Trembling Blue Stars, and Belle & Sebastian as their inspiration, owing to their lushly ornate sound and irresistible pop smarts to the cult favorites that defined their taste as musicians.
“The intro was inspired by early New Order with minimal drums and melodic basslines setting the tone for something of delicate poise. I added synth elements to help shape the sound, while Ness shows up in the chorus with her distinct singing style adding a tinge of sunshine to the mix. To top it off, we incorporated string parts instead of a guitar solo. It is always my style to put the best part on the finale,” Cristobal added.
What are you waiting for? Stream “Sound Wave” now and be ready to sway it out with the beat of the drums and the strums of the guitars! You’ll definitely feel like dancing with the sound!
