1. Grizzly Pool by Ely Cheats On Record
If you haven’t noticed, OPM or Original Pinoy Music is constantly improving and evolving into something that could be recognized globally. Moreover, a lot of gems have been popping here and there recently, which we are not complaining of! So when we heard the track ‘Grizzly Pool‘, which was a product of a collaboration between Ely Buendia and Cheats, we were really impressed. It was really different but in a great way.
Frankly, ‘Grizzly Pool’ reminds us of 90’s American coming of age movies. The effects added to the vocals just felt like we were listening to the radio during the old times. It brought a certain wave of nostalgia, also because of the hook which was really, really catchy. We love how this song screams ‘angst’ in an upbeat and fun way. And that’s why ‘Grizzly Pool’ is on the top of our Top 10 Songs of the Week!
2. Koloring Book by Sandwich featuring Ice Seguerra
This song by two iconic entities, namely classic OPM band Sandwich and balladeer Ice Seguerra, deserves the number two spot on our Top 10 Songs of the Week! Because when you listen to ‘Koloring Book’, it takes you through a multicolor OPM journey through their eyes.
‘Koloring Book’ by Sandwich featuring Ice Seguerra was released just last November 7. And right after, Sandwich also released their surprise remix album, ‘Space/Spase (Club Sandwich Remix).
3. All I Feel and See by Any Name’s Okay
The long wait for new music from Any Name’s Okay has officially ended! Because their debut EP album ‘All I Feel and See’ is now available to stream on all major streaming platforms! It was released last November 21, and the launch party happened last November 23.
So just like its title, the EP is all about the things they feel and see. It is a compilation of songs that talk about youthful experiences on love, triumph, and growing up. And of course, our favorite from the EP is ‘All I Feel and See’. Especially because ‘All I Feel and See’ feels like the OST to our own personal transformative journey. So listen to it, right now!
4. Without Your Love by Over October
We don’t know about you, but this song absolutely made us laugh. Because anyone whose been scorned by love says something along the lines of “I think I’ll just live under a boulder” at one point in their lives. But never do we truly mean it, because love may bring heartbreak, but it’s the gamble we take for happiness that only love can bring. So if you’re feeling run down by love, ‘Without Your Love’ by Over October is the perfect companion. And don’t worry, you’ll be back on your feet in no time!
5. Celine by Garage Morning
Falling in love with a friend is never easy, but is it worth it? Garage Morning sing about this and more in their new song, ‘Celine’!
The newest single from Garage Morning is a relatively chill track. And is a definite automatic addition to our personal chill playlists. We can already imagine ourselves having a cup of coffee in the morning, with ‘Celine’ playing in the background. So if some easy listening with tranquil vocals is what you’re after, ‘Celine’ by Garage Morning is the answer.
However, what the song is all about is a theme that isn’t new to most of us and can sometimes be a source of anxiety. Listen to it now, and find out what we mean!
6. Yakap by Moira Dela Torre
Moira is giving all of you an early Christmas gift this November! Because her newest song is all about being in the arms of the person or people that matter this Christmas. Hence, ‘Yakap’ which means embrace. And isn’t that what matters most during Christmas? It’s not about the presents or the food, it’s about being with the ones you love. So add Yakap’ by Moira Dela Torre to your Christmas playlists now!
7. Try by She’s Coming Home
The band proudly claims that ‘Try’ is your new cold-weather companion. And honestly, they’re not wrong! Because Karla Pauline Macatlang’s vocals is like being served a steaming cup of hot chocolate. And making the overall vibe of ‘Try’ by She’s Coming Home very relaxing.
Although the lyrics are the complete opposite. In fact, the sheer lack of warmth in the lyrics is piercing. But of course, how can the lyrics contain warmth when it’s about two people’s failed relationship, and yet they’re still trying to hold on.
This ironically beautiful song is why it’s on our Top 10 Songs of the Week!
8. Hindi Ka Na Mahal by Color The Era
Even if it hurts, honesty is still the best policy. And although ‘Hindi Ka Na Mahal’ by Color The Era really fr*ckin hurts, we have to appreciate the fact that the song is about being honest with one’s feelings.
‘Hindi Ka Na Mahal’ by Color The Era was released just last November 21, under Viva Records. And as you guessed, it’s a song about a person coming clean to their partner that they just don’t love them anymore. Ouch! It really, really, really hurts. But then again, would you rather be lied to? It will hurt for a while, but in the end, you’ll feel relieved anyway. So listen to ‘Hindi Ka Na Mahal’ by Color The Era today and let us know if it hurt you too!
9. Chasing Sunsets (Stripped Down) by Submission
You can now enjoy the stripped-down version of the 2018 track ‘Chasing Sunsets’ by Submission! Taken from their ‘Catharsis’ album, they’ve completely mellowed out their otherwise electro-rock song, ‘Chasing Sunsets’. Give it a listen today!
A word of advice, don’t dismiss ‘Chasing Sunsets’ as just as repost track. Because not only have they stripped it down, they’ve also rebuilt it from the ground up. And with it, we have a newfound appreciation for the lyrics that we didn’t quite catch the first time around. In one word, ‘Chasing Sunsets’ by Submission is stellar!
10. Sabihin by Melody Hodgson
‘Sabihin’, the second single of Melody Hodgson, has only been released last November 22. And honestly, it is a ballad that most of us need to hear and eventually learn from. Remarkably, the singer-songwriter’s wide vocal range was flawlessly beautiful and her ability to portray emotions through her voice was heartfelt.
Melody’s latest single speaks of confronting a loved one about the hard truth, even when it might be painful.
