NEW TRACK: Lucas - "2k Ok"

There’s been a deluge of breakout artists from Davao City lately, from dream-pop duo Skymarines to singer-songwriter chanteuse Jad Montenegro, with an attempt to put the city back to music history map once stamped by the likes of Joey Ayala, Cynthia Alexander and Bayang Barrios—all highly respected folk luminaries that influenced a bunch of musicians to write their own material and get heard, at all cost. And then, there’s Lucas—a newbie indie rock outfit whose fuzzy, feel-good garage rock sound and inherent youthful charm could excite the hormonal teenager in us.

Their new track “2k Ok” takes their beloved fuzz back into the ‘90s, stirring up Britpop candy out of catchy riffs, twilight vocal harmonies, and sweet melodies that sound drunk on love and the feeling it exudes. The songwriting is deceptively simple and fresh, with an ingenious way of turning romantic sentiments into something bigger than emotions. “It’s you and me, it’s you and me,” mantra-speaking, it’s everything we all want to hear. And Lucas brings all these possibilities to seep through our dreams with their own brand of love bug.
