Filipino independent music is currently in a more interesting state, with genuinely transporting new sounds. The scene is big on indie folk, with bands like Ourselves The Elves taking the forefront. Autotelic, BP Valenzuela, and Sud put out radio-friendly but far from cookie-cutter records, which in some way drives people to discover gems like Bullet Dumas, Eggboy, and A Problem Like Maria’s music. There’s plenty of great music to go around; people need to just take the time to look.
With that said, here are ten of my favorite indie musicians who I think will definitely get your attention.
