The girl-fronted band CHNDTR (pronounced as “Chindetera”), an act fine-tuned for the current lovestruck and stylishly digital, daring generation, officially launched the music video for their latest single “Sulat.” The video was directed by a four-man team, namely, Paul Bagsic, Ibrahim Manalo, Michael Bihla, and Joseph Cacanindin.
CHNDTR has had solid achievements over the past few years of its remarkably noteworthy existence. Its debut album “Habang Umuulan” already garnered a total of almost two million streams and more than 87,000 listeners on popular digital engine Spotify and other platforms.
Their breakout gig came in 2016 when the group won grand champ at the Deli Music Festival Battle of the Bands supervised by retail-chain Robinsons. In no time they became brand ambassadors for Pony, a reflection of their music’s positive public reception.
The band has likewise been reaching out to its audience by playing in packed gigs and significant guest appearances heard in the airwaves or seen on TV or social media sites. They have performed on Wish 107.5’s Wishclusive, MYX Bandarito stage, Tower Sessions, and in special media office gigs MB Life and INQPop Sessions. Their radio touring has included air slots on MOR Live 101.5, Brgy LS 97.1, RX 93.1, EnergyFM 106.7 and Pinas FM 95.5.
Their new single “Sulat” is definitely proving to be an instant hit among the band’s growing number of fans, with the song’s music video quickly getting thousands of views right after it got posted on YouTube. It is a track, the apparent sequel to their well-accepted song “Kulang,” that captures the essence of “HugotCore” — a phrase describing their music and style.
In an interview about their brand of music, they mentioned the term in reference to the fact that “most of their songs have so much feel to it.”
While the songs have naturally turned out to be relatable to young, in-touch-with-their-feelings people, CHNDTR manages to catch music fans’ attention in other facets of the band, like its very name. CHNDTR is actually an abbreviation of the front talent’s name, Chin Detera. With her soaring voice and gift as songwriter, it sounds like an understatement labeling her as the group’s heart and soul. Well, it’s self-explanatory that CHNDTR is dubbed by fans as “the band name without vowels.”
Embracing the value of having regular music mates she can rely on throughout this life-empowering musical journey, Chin is happy to note she is supported by a trio of talented instrumentalists in Sean De Leon (Bassist), Benjo Criste (Drummer) and Niko Bacani (Lead Guitarist).
