Rocking Out in The Motherland: MilesExperience

I’m spending a couple weeks in the Philippines to surprise my grandma for her 80th birthday, so I figured now was the time to finally check out some Filipino bands.

Achieving the Perfect Balance Between Grunge and Hip Hop: Tangerine

It is few and far between that I like an opening band so much, their entire discography ends up being added to my Spotify library. Tangerine happens to be one of these rare occasions. When they opened for Bleachers, I was completely entranced by Marika’s delicate voice, coupled with the guitars’ screeching melodies. The concoction […]

Bleachers in Austin, TX

Bleachers has been on my bucket list of live shows since he was supposed to open for Charlie XCX’s last tour. Unfortunately, the tour was cancelled, and any chance I had of seeing him was just as likely as me splurging on a trip to the east coast for the few cities left that he […]

A Beautiful Trek: Gone Now by Bleachers

If Jack Antonoff’s first Bleachers album,┬áStrange Desire, was an aggressive yet melodic cry for help, then his sophomore follow-up, Gone Now, is the cathartic realization that he can finally move on. The album’s title itself could serve as a self-declaration that he is finally able to face the fact that his sister is no longer […]

A Millennial’s Soundtrack: The Click by AJR

AJR’s┬áThe Click is one of the most relatable and honest collection of songs I’ve ever heard. Considering their transparency in the raw performance they gave as openers for Ingrid Michaelson, I’m not at all surprised. Brothers Jack and Adam’s dance moves resembled more of an awkward interaction between their slumping shoulders and the beats they […]
