Andreia – Kultura

“Hindi na tayo susunod sa daloy ng kultura
Nasaan na ang mga posturang makata?

Isigaw mo sa buong mundo

Tumalon sa kabilang dako ng ilog
Tumakbo patungo sa iyong paraiso

If you’ve been lingering around Soundcloud lately, you might have heard of this 30-minute set recorded when a certain band’s vocalist, armed with a mic and a guitar, was left alone in Wombworks Studio, Marikina. If you haven’t, you should probably try and go looking for it. Or not.

In this set, called “Locked Out at Wombworks,” Roberto Seña, vocalist of rock band She’s Only Sixteen, sings a few of their band’s songs as well as samples of what will be included in their upcoming album.
