“Nahulog lang siguro ng biglaan.”

“Pasensya Na” by Troy Alcala | “Where have I heard of Suicidal Genius before?” More proof that, while we try to make more sense of local music, we just, well, can’t, at least not completely. That band’s been around for a while, so it makes sense that vocalist Troy Alcala is out for a new challenge, so here he is, going solo, sort of. He released his first single “Pasensya Na” a few months back – here I was expecting something more straightforward, but the introduction makes a very good impression, and the rest of the track follows suit: a lush, dense, but not totally hazy song that accents Troy’s sweet vocals (and sweeter sentiments). His newer single, “Hintay” – it’s on Spotify now – has a different feel, something more gloomy and languid and, well, cold. There’s some interesting stuff on here – and we look forward to more in the coming months. I’m guessing a record is in the works. That would be a nice companion to a drive, yes? [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
