WATCH | Zerise offers hope to frontliners with soaring hip-hop flavored number

As part of BusinessMirror’s campaign to promote everyone’s safety and well-being during the global health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have invited established and independent artists to perform at least one song in their own homes while urging everyone to stay indoors.

Zerise is a five-piece indie band composed of Cerise Limueco on vocals, Bryanne Tuazon on drums, Daniel Bardoc on lead guitar, Jared Isaiah on rhythm guitar and Christian Maranan on bass. Early this year, they released Listening Party, their 5-song debut EP produced by seasoned musician Mally Paraguya of P.O.T. fame.

Reviewing Listening Party for SoundStrip, music critic Tony M. Maghirang described their unified sound as “distilled from individual influences in various genres from alt-rock to EDM.”

“The four guys behind Cerise supply a musical muscle that calls to mind the pop rockers of the last OPM boy band era (e.g. Cueshe, Hale). As Ms. Limeuco draws out the emotional pull of her compositions, the others provide the right instrumentation to put the message across,” Maghirang further wrote.

For their SoundStrip Live & in Quarantine session, the band chooses to perform “Bangon,” a soaring feet-stomper that mixes EDM with hip-hop and rap. With its strong message of hope, Cerise said the band is dedicating this song to all the frontliners, health workers and everyone else who are doing their share to fight this pandemic.
