mise en drèam This album is otherworldly. My favorite album of 2017 so far. The sound this brilliant man has developed tickles my pickle just right every time I hear him. USED TO BE GOOD FRIENDS is the favorite child. I cannot bestow enough love upon that song. So glad I bought the vinyl because this is an album I'm going to be buried with. 10/10 thanks for stealing my heart Favorite track: USED TO BE GOOD FRIENDS.

about

Manila Ice showcases Eyedress's unique talent for lovesick composition and songwriting, and his DIY spirit. The album was recorded around the birth of his first child and represents the hopes and fears of a young parent as well as providing him an escape from the realities of his personal life and the dramatic political events unfolding in his home city. He recorded and produced the entire album from his bedroom studio at his parents house - playing lead and rhythm guitar, bass, synths, samplers, drums alongside singing and rapping.

His music is informed by the diverse influences of his early life in Phoenix, Arizona and San Clemente, California followed by his family’s return to The Philippines aged 15. Taking to sampling and beat making as much as traditional musicianship, his thirst for expression has seen him turn his unique voice to rap, punk, synth pop and lo-fi indie styles. On Manila Ice he strips his experimentation back to a more traditional songwriting, and brings a striking honesty to the narratives which weave through the record.
