3 bands from the Philippines that need to tour the UK immediately


We love hunting down new bands to listen to. It makes doing weekend chores and homework way more fun.

This weekend, we thought we’d introduce you guys to some amazing bands that are from the Philippines. We asked the Fangirls Issues Facebook Page for their recommendations and thought we’d share just a few of our faves with you.

Without further ado, let’s stan.

Say hello to sisters, Almira, Irene, Mylene, and Celina. They’re basically Little Mix 2.0 and appeared on ‘The X Factor’ in 2015. The girls finished 5th in the show and have just released their brand new single ‘Unleash The Diva’. It’s beyond sassy and the vocals are so fierce.

As well as their own songs, 4th Impact also post covers on their YouTube channel. One of our favourites is ‘Despacito ft. Justin Bieber’ – it’s absolutely amazing and we could listen to it all day long. No shame.

BoybandPH are a Filipino boy band based in Manila. The band’s made up of Joao, Niel, Tristan, Russell and Ford and the boys have just released a brand new EP. The mini-album is self titled and has loads of catchy songs on it including ‘Somebody’, ‘Boyfriend’ and ‘We Made It’.

When the boys aren’t busy singing their lungs out, they’re being super sweet to their fans. They post Facebook Lives nearly every Sunday where BoybandPH’s Super Fans and Bandmates can ask questions, listen to the boys perform or just share the BPH love. We stan.

Major *heart eyes* are happening. UPGRADE are a crazy talented band made up of Casey, Armond, Ivan, Miggy, Rhem, and Mark. They’ve performed on shows like ‘Unang Hirit’ and are epic dancers.

As well as dance covers, the boys also upload vlogs to YouTube and give you a sneak peek at what they get up to on a day-to-day basis. It’s basically like you’re there with them. Come to the UK soon please, UPGRADE.
