The Ransom Collective Make A #1 Comeback With New Single ‘I Don’t Care’

mustard music proudly presents “I Don’t Care” the newest single from indie/folk-pop band The Ransom Collective.

Since releasing their debut album “Traces” in 2017, the band has undergone a creative rebirth — exploring new musical ideas, and experimenting between different styles and sounds that have led them to a fresh, modern reinvention on the sound listeners and fans have come to love them for.

“I Don’t Care” brings these ideas into fruition, as the first of many songs that came to be in this new era of The Ransom Collective. The song is about discovering oneself, and all the ugliness and beauty that comes with the process.

Prior to its release, the song took the top spot on the iTunes PH New Music Pre-Order Chart – proving even more successful as the single launched on May 3rd. Aside from topping the iTunes PH Alternative Chart, the head-bopping track also entered the iTunes PH All-genre chart, taking the highest spot for an OPM song. The band’s comeback song joins the big leagues of Taylor Swift & Brendon Urie, BTS, and BLACKPINK, who similarly have released new tracks for their longtime fans.

Talking about the song, lead vocalist Kian Ransom says, “I watched someone I love go through depression, and this song is essentially about the journey they went through and the empathy that’s required to understand someone who’s going through something so difficult.”

While the song tackles rather serious matters, its backing track provides a sense of fun and lightness – giving an upbeat, retro feel that will give listeners good vibes to sing and dance along to on repeat.

Coming into this brand new take on the TRC sound, band members mention Anderson Paak, Honne, Boy Pablo, Bon Iver, Prep, Crumb, Chance the Rapper, among many artists they’ve taken inspiration from.

If this song is any indication, long-time fans and new listeners have a lot of good music to look forward to from The Ransom Collective all-year round.

I Don’t Care is now available for streaming on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, and Amazon Music, under mustard music. Watch out for its accompanying music video, premiering on MYX and YouTube on May 4th.

A change of pace from his previous release “Fantasy (feat. Paolo Sandejas), the head-bopping track is a personification of Joey the Boy as an artist – flexing his skills in writing, making a beat, and showing off some personal swag as he raps about his rap idols, what makes him great, and what keeps him going from day to day.

Talking about the song, Joey says “it’s about my personal mindset towards my everyday life. I talk about my daily thought processes and opinions while implementing positivity towards them. I see a lot going wrong with the world, but I think we all shouldn’t be complacent with it. The song encapsulates my strive for to be great and make an impact as an artist.”

Pop Rock Royalty Bamboo Manalac released his new album

Pop Rock Royalty Bamboo Manalac released his new album, Bless This Mess at the 12 Monkeys Music Hall and Pub in Makati City.

His second album, Bless This Mess released by PolyEast Records saying that writing good music should take time and enough space.

Recorded in Grand Street Recording Studio in Brooklyn, New York featuring ten brand new well-crafted compositions, Bless This Mess offers broad selection of songs from emotional “Last Dance” to intriguing song like “Mr Wang” which was inspired by Bamboo’s former neighbor. Also taking subtle risks such as the bluesy but energy-boost kick-off single Firepower, written at the time of his 2011 No water, No Moon but thought it won’t match the tone of the other songs in his first solo album.

Firepower was officially heard on Spotify, iTunes, Deezr, Spinnr, Amazon, Guvera Music as well as local radios all over the country on October 15. PolyEast Records’ YouTube channel also premiered a prelude song “Nothing Like You” which connects to Firepower music video directed by Paolo Valenciano. “In the video, both songs are together because they are meant to be the same thing. If you see the video, you’ll get to interpret how both connect to each other,” Bamboo added.

As the album title “Bless This Mess” signifies more than it seems, he explained, “I’ll let folks figure that out but it’s something I’ve whispered to myself before sessions or gigs in past years”.

“I could be wrong with how long the break was and that’s the challenge of why it took so long. There was just so much swimming in my head and this album is part moving forward as well as just fitting another piece to the puzzle — in regards to how my current sets will sound and look like”.

Bamboo’s “Bless This Mess” CD will be available on October 30 at all records bars nationwide. Digital tracks can also be downloaded on iTunes, Amazon and Guvera Music. You may also listen to the full album on Spotify.
