We're bringing back our showcase of up-and-coming acts in the local music scene, MYX Bandarito! For our opening salvo, we have the fast-rising rock quartet IV Of Spades composed of Unique Salonga on vocals, Blaster Silonga on guitars, Badjao De Castro on drums, and Zild Benitez on bass!
Formed just 3 years ago, IV Of Spades features young lads who all came from a family of musicians. Unique and Blaster are 17, Zild is 20 while Badjao is 23 yet they are sonically and aesthetically inspired by bands from the 1970s and 1980s.
They found it challenging at first to think of a band name, but decided to go for IV of Spades after Blaster found a single playing card inside his pocket. So how did it end up there? His brother happens to be a magician!
IV Of Spades has been signed by Warner Music Philippines and they've already released two singles: "Ilaw Sa Daan" which is about a woman's "night life" and the funky track "Hey Barbara" which is currently on the Pinoy MYX Countdown. Check out our MYXclusive interview below to get to know them more!
And now, get ready to dance along to IV Of Spades's MYX Bandarito performance of "Hey Barbara"!
