Dark, loud and romantic; with one foot in the past and both eyes dead set on the future
PUPIL describe their music. After disbanding Mongols in 2005,Â the remaining members of the band formed Pupil. Late last year, they released their first album, Beautiful Machines. And from the design cover of the album alone, you’d immediately guess what type of music you are going to hear. True to their description of their music, the tracks in Beautiful Machines are loud and yet romantic as in the carrier single, Wala Ka Na. Buendia’s singing still has traces of eheads. Yes, prolly he can never change that. But the musical accompaniment, especially the use of more advanced electronic gadget made this track distinct from the other buendia songs. And in the rest of the tracks in the album which Buendia sang. If you miss the eraserheads don’t buy this album. This is not the eraserheads’ kind of music. But if you want something new to listen to, something original which is definitely way way better than what you see and hear from local radio stations and tv shows, definitely more deserving of the tag OPM (Original Pilipino Music) than the mainstream’s favorite “revival bands and singers”, then buy this album. It’s worth all your precious bucks.
