2014 is definitely an exciting year for local music.

Listed as one of the Most Anticipated Releases of 2014 in vandalsonthewall.com, The Cohens’ Launch of their self-titled EP last Friday, March 7, at Route 196 Katipunan Avenue, proved to be something that gives people a taste of their contemporary twist to the 60’s feel of their music.

Walrus Music Video (She’s Only Sixteen)

It was an early New Year’s Eve party for us at She’s Only Sixteen’s Walrus video shoot held last December 19-20, 2013. It was also my first time to be part of a music video shoot, it was really fun (not to mention technical and stuff, which I liked as well)! It made me realize I want to direct a music video someday. Hehe. Someday. 🙂

A Fundraising Concert that was All for Love

It was the 6th of December, the night for All for Love: Pagbangon Gikan sa Dilubyo, a fundraising concertfor the benefit of typhoon Yolanda victims.

Route 196’s sign was not that big but that night, the letters and numbers on it screamed.  Their impact was even intensified by the redness and whiteness of its font, standing out against the black background that almost merged with the blackness of the night sky. Below it, there was another sign containing the names of the performers for the night: Johnoy Danao, Mike Shimamoto, She’s Only Sixteen and more.

Locked Out at Wombworks II- Something to Look Out For

by Rhea Leorag

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.

Holding hands again

I love you till the end..”
