"Bukas Makalawa"

UPPERCASE teams up with fellow Toronto songwriter and musician Gabriel Tagadtad of local band Aquarius to produce a fresh new sound in their brand new EP released under indie label Radio Insect Records.

In addition to earlier released singles "Tuldok" (June 3, 2016) and "Panaginip" (July 16, 2016), this sophomore EP concludes the band's releases for the year 2016. The album features 5 all-original tracks and showcases a lighter pop sound from the band in comparison to their debut LP album "Time Space Warp" which had more sombre yet hopeful messages in the songs.

The band stays true to their pop rock roots with the opening track and carrier single "Bukas Makalawa". Written in early 2008, the song is a direct offshoot from the band's first single "Balikbayan", a sort of sequel to the latter's storyline alluding to the experiences of Overseas Filipino Workers.
