“Hindi na tayo katulad ng dati.”

“Burnout” by Sugarfree | I haven’t written on this blog enough about Sugarfree. Surprisingly – they’re my first favorite local band. I keep on making mental notes about making commemorative posts surrounding the release of their first two albums, but then I forget about it. Now we’re closing down, I guess I’m trying to make up for it. I discovered Sugarfree, like most of us, on the radio, but by then they had begun creeping out into the mainstream – I think I first heard “Telepono” on RX. Dramachine, their second release, remains one of those really good, all-killer-no-filler local albums of the past couple of decades. But I still have a soft spot for the songs of their debut, Sa Wakas, of how it introduced us to the bittersweet nature of Ebe, Jal and Mitch. “Burnout” was the second single, if I recall correctly, and it felt just a bit more painful. And then it makes sense. It’s time to go, even if you don’t want to. [NB]
