Two weeks ago I had the privilege of meeting Sugar High, a newly formed boy band here in the Philippines. After receiving an email from Sheryl of Viva records, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. Coming with me to the event was my skating/blogger friend ate Yvi. I mentioned her quite a few times on my blog already so check her website out too! We both came from the SM Megamall ice skating rink opening. Tuesday the 28th was such a busy day.
We listened to three of the group’s 6 original songs in the newly released album ‘Sugar High’. Even before hearing them, I had one question I was dying to find the answer to: are their songs in Filipino or English? The answer, a little bit of both. The song I appealed to most is ‘Best days of our Lives’ where it has a positive melody and content. All of their songs we listened to were upbeat and lively! The reason to this is probably because they are around my age and some a bit older- teenagers!

When it comes to music I have no idea what people listen to these days. I actually listen to broadway most of the time. Lucky for me, when asking the five guys about their favorite bands and singers, I knew who they were! We also asked things that are not exactly related to their music such as hobbies, personalities and celebrity crushes HAHA. Not a surprise Julia Barretto and Anne Curtis came up!
By the way, I forgot to mention why they’re called sugar-high in the first place. It describes their mood when they are all together- hyper! I couldn’t agree more. It was a pleasure getting to know these 5 talented singers who have a bright future ahead of them. I actually met Daniel and Carl through SM kids fashion as we joined PFW a few years back. It was also great to meet Luis, Julius and Carlos. They kind of remind me of One Direction (their favorite international band).
To Sugar High, I wish you all the best. You each have a unique voice and when you sing as a group, there are great harmonies embedded in your soundtracks. As of now, congratulations to a great start. Hope to see you guys again! To everyone in town, buy their album, there’s a new exciting group coming your way!
