On January 13, Brisom once again treated their fans to a new track for the new year. Fans were thrilled to have heard it first at its launch at Upperhouse, The Brewery, Bonifacio Global City before its online release.
Hosted by 99.5 Play FM DJ Renzo Magnaye, the night was filled with amazing music and an engaged audience. Band merchandise were given away, courtesy of Brisom. Poetic Sparks opened the night and even after 11 years of hiatus, they gave a performance that hyped the crowd for the rest of the night.
Electro-folk singer Keiko Necesario and her full band entertained the crowd with her powerful vocals, performing songs from her latest EP Escape. Then, the night was thrown into a nostalgia trip when Orange & Lemons hit the stage and sang songs from their old tracks to newer ones. Autotelic kept the audience dancing as they set the night for Brisom’s performance. They also showcased a new song called “Takipsilim”.
The night ended with Brisom, who performed songs from their latest EP and allowed the fans to hear their latest single “Siglon” live featuring Roxy Modesto’s saxophone works. “Siglon” is another electro-pop arrangement with dreamy synths and a sexy twist brought by the saxophone. Band members explained that the song’s title is a portmanteau from “sigaw” (shout) and “talon” (jump).
