The lads behind the two indie scene movements – South East Asia Indie (SEA Indie) and Filipino based indie music website Vandals On The Wall have joined forces to release a compilation of Filipino indie tracks titled Erasing Memories. The compilation can be seen as a platform for indie pundits seeking music beyond borders as well as a compilation parading the array of music from the indie scene in the Philippines.
Prepare to hold your emotions high because parallel to what the title of the compilation is, “Erasing Memories”, this compendium is said to revolve around “humanly vulnerabilities” and mirrors a “passionate relationship gone wrong”. You know, the type of songs that revolve around complicated relationships, breakups, and everything cynical about love. Whether you are in a relationship or not, we often see ourselves listening to mixtapes given by loved ones, or when things in your attempted love life turn ugly, listening to songs that bring back memories – be it good or bad.
From what the information and sounds of this compilation conveys, you will be listening to 21 tracks that may most probably bring you walking down memory lane along with borderline smiles and/or a whole lot of sorrow.
