Drip has been creating raves in the Philippines and even in the global independent music scene because of their unique sound now, Drip has something new to offer to its fans. First is the 3 music videos that they have launched last January 29th in Greenbelt 5. They showed the music videos while they were performing at the Gallery. The videos were “Bloodletting”, “Blind” and “Turning Grey”.
My favorite was “Bloodletting” because it felt very serene. The teaser of the video is below but I can’t post the entire video here (unless they give me permission 😉 ). The video has 2 women swimming underwater. It seems like there’s girl to girl action (which was perfectly fine with me! 😉 ) but it’s not what it’s all about (I just implied that but there’s no kissing or anything related to that hehe). The 2 women in the video are Shawn Yao and Annicka Dolonius. Beng was also in the video, swimming.
As usual, Drip’s performance was awesome and Beng’s voice was breath taking. Too bad, the acoustics of the venue wasn’t that good. Beng even told me that they couldn’t even hear themselves while performing. By the way, I didn’t realize that Beng’s sister was my classmate in back in UP. She tapped on my shoulder and recognized me while watching Beng onstage.
I’ve been a fan of Drip for more than a year but it’s only now that I got the chance to buy their album “Identity Theft”. It’s only now that I’ve realized that the whole album is under Creative Commons which means anybody can remix the songs for as long as it will not be distributed commercially.
Second good news about Drip is that they will be releasing a Spanish album soon which they collaborated with Instituto Cervantes. They performed some of their Spanish songs during the event. I didn’t really understand it but it sounded great! 🙂
The whole band’s apparel was courtesy of Puma (and the event was also sponsored by them). I like Beng’s wardrobe, it’s so cool! 🙂 As usual, there was free booze for everyone (too bad I wasn’t able to drink because I haven’t eaten dinner yet). I can’t wait to hear the band’s new album. Hopefully, it will be released soon. Congratulations to Drip and hope you continue to make more cool trip-hop electronica music!
