I hear it every day in the office, in the car, and especially at home. I’m not complaining, they’re all great songs, but again it has been almost three weeks of the same sixteen songs on loop. My ears yearn for something else, something fresh. That is why I made this article for all of us who needs a break from all the folklore spectacle.

Mandaue Nights puts New Wave music back in the spotlight. The duo composed of Karl Lucente on guitars and Gino Rosales on vocals came from very different musical background. Meeting halfway, they recreate music that mirrors 80s synth-pop and Pinoy alternative rock, paving a new landscape for the Cebuano artists. Get ready for waves of nostalgia rushing through your veins the moment you put their songs on.
Their music will surely bring you back to the nights with no goodbyes and revisit what once was a Super Sonic Love. That’s right, that’s my favorite song from their track.

Gabe, Bill, and Kyle Wong are brothers who are fond of creating cover songs as a pastime. To their delight, the fun opened up doors to a whole new world. Now called the Wonggoys, the brothers rule the Cebuano pop scene with their guitar-driven, emotionally-charged songs to warm each and everyone’s heart. Fun fact: their band name is a playful take on their surname and the nickname their mother gave them, unggoys.
If you’re a fan of John Mayer and Jason Mraz, you’ll love the Wonggoys.
