The Gentle Isolation pays tribute to obscure pop acts through new song, Sound Waves

10/21/2020 06:40:51 PM

The Gentle Isolation just made a revisit into the memory lane and released a new song after so many years on the shelf.

Through “Sound Wave,” the indie-pop outfit revisits the internal appeal of their favorites by going back to the song that was originally written in 2014 and release them as a tribute to the obscure pop heroes that inspired the band to make music. 
“Our latest track is an ode to the music that we held dear like one of our close friends: they come and go because of the inevitable proliferation of trends, but they’ll remain special in our hearts,” said guitarist and vocalist Monch Cristobal.
This sextet has cited the likes of New Order, The Stone Roses, Trembling Blue Stars, and Belle & Sabastian as inspiration in writing and producing “Sound Wave,” owing to their lushly ornate sound and irresistible pop smarts to the cult favorites that define their taste as musicians. 
“The intro was inspired by early New Order with minimal drums and melodic basslines setting the tone for something of delicate poise,” Cristobal described their latest song. “I added synth elements to help shape the sound, while Ness shows up in the chorus with her distinct singing style adding a tinge of sunshine to the mix. To top it off, we incorporated string parts instead of a guitar solo. It is always my style to put the best part on the finale.”
The Gentle Isolation is a Bulacan-based band composed of Ness Urian (vocals and acoustic guitars), Monch Cristobal (bass, guitars, and synths), and Bach Rudica (drums) as core members, and Rommel Vivar (live guitar player), Law Santiago (live bass player) as session players. They released their debut EP, It Started With An April Shower in 2010, and earned overwhelming praise from critics for its “shining mix of jangly guitars, defined instrumental hooks and addicting pop melodies.” Their new song is now available on all streaming platforms via Lilystars Records.
