Song: “Sleep Alone”
Artist: Two Door Cinema Club
Following 2010’s Tourist History is Beacon, the indie trio’s latest album featuring the single, “Sleep Alone.” Lead singer Alex Trimble warbles his way through the catchy track, powered by the band’s signature fluctuating guitar lines.
Fun fact: According to NME, "Sleep Alone" was inspired by the drug-induced dreams of Trimble.
Artist: Gloc-9 featuring Ebe Dancel
"Sirena" isn't just topping local charts because of its catchy beats topped with Gloc-9's flawless raps and Ebe Dancel's unique crooning. People are also talking about the single's message of support for the LGBT community. The line that made the most impact on us: "'Di sinusukat ang tapang at ang bigote sa mukha / Dahil kung minsan mas lalake pa sa lalake ang bakla."
Fun fact: In an interview with MYX, Dancel talked about the song and its music video: "The song chronicles the life of a gay person. Mula sa pagkabata hanggang sa deathbed nung tatay niya."
