MUSIC LYF: Kamikazee - Romantico

Kamikazee, with their signature onstage antics and witty songs, has established itself to be one of the hottest bands of this generation, yeilding numerous hits like "Narda," "Tsinelas," "Chicksilog," "First Day High," among others. For their forth album "Romantico" the rock ban goes extremely personal with songs that re-tell their love experiences. 

"What makes this album special is that all songs here are expression of our experiences and the stories around us," says drummer Allan "Bords" Burdeos. "It is an album very close to us as these songs represent parts of who we are now." 

Frontman Jay Contreras adds, "Para siyang kuwento ng mga taong umibig, umiibig, iniwan, nasaktan, at umibig ulit." 


Kamikazee considers the album special because this is the first time that they had agreed on the album's theme even before the collection of songs was written. 

The band added that usually the songs comes first before they think of an album concept, but for ROMANTICO, it is clear to them that they want to tackle love as the central theme. 

The album's first single "Halik" talks about love grown tired, expressed in Kamikazee's signature sound.


When asked whose story that was, Bord quickly replied, "secret!"


Another standout tracks are TNT, Tamis, Tagpuan, Sana, Sobrang Lungkot, Kislap, Wo-oh, If You're Not Here, Paano, Huling Sayaw.


Romantico comes after  the hit albums, Kamikazee, Maharot and Long Time Noisy.


Formed in 2000, the band is composed of Jay Contreras on Vocals, Jomal Linao on guitars and backing vocals, Led Tuyay on guitars, Puto Astete on bass and Bords Buredos.
