GRAND PRICKS

Grand Pricks (formerly known as Manuel Nicolas Alvero) is the solo project of Owel Alvero, front man of Manila-based indie rock band Ang Bandang Shirley. Counting Mount Eerie and The Jicks-era Stephen Malkmus among his influences, Alvero creates compositions characterized by fuzzy vocals, slow electronic beats, and prominent single-note guitar lines weaving in and out of a hazy, lo-fi backdrop. His unusual form of storytelling is readily apparent in the single “Tender Baal" and its accompanying track, “Pious Kiss”—two tracks characterized by visceral endings, unexpected tempo changes that produce subtle shifts in mood, and diverging melodies held together by the calculated use of sustained feedback.
