“Basta’t makasama ka, ako’y nakauwi na.”

“Nakauwi Na” by Ang Bandang Shirley | I’ve seen Ang Bandang Shirley live, once, during their early days, supporting Up Dharma Down in another one of those many afternoon gigs held in La Salle. I know they’re still around, but they haven’t been on my radar in a long time, until I saw Claud tweet this song, their latest single. “Nakauwi Na” is off their album Tama Na Ang Drama – should be on iTunes – and it’s a good example of the indie pop scene that formed here in the middle of the last decade, the sort that remain together despite very much being under the radar. I had little expectations, frankly, until the chorus ended and that lyric I quoted came along. It is cheesy – to me, at least; I use a variation of this line – but it’s just, you know, perfect. [NB]
