They say timing is everything and you have to be at the right place and right time. The girl-fronted band, CHNDTR, certainly fits the bill being an act fine-tuned for the current lovestruck and stylish digital, daring generation.

CHNDTR has solid achievements over the past few years of its remarkably noteworthy existence. Its debut album, “Habang Umuulan,” already garnered a total of almost two million streams and more than 87,000 listeners on popular digital engine Spotify and other platforms of its kind.

Its breakout gig came in 2016 when it won grand champion at the Deli Music Festival Battle of the Bands supervised by retail chain Robinsons. In no time, they became brand ambassadors for Pony, a reflection of their music’s positive public reception.

Its new single, “Sulat,” is definitely proving to be an instant hit among the band’s growing number of fans, with the song’s music video quickly getting thousands of views right after it got posted on YouTube. It is a track – an apparent sequel to their well-accepted song “Kulang” – that captures the essence of Hugot Core, sa phrase describing CHNDTR’s music and style.

In an interview of their brand of music, they mentioned the term in reference to the fact that “most of their songs has so much feels to it.”

Chin, who is the band’s lead singer and composer, is supported by a trio of talented instrumentalists in Sean De Leon (bassist), Benjo Criste (drummer) and Niko Bacani (lead guitarist).

CHNDTR launched the music video of their latest single “Sulat” at The 70’s Bistro, Anonas, Quezon City. The video was directed by a four-man team namely Paul Bagsic, Ibrahim Manalo, Michael Bihla and Joseph Cacanindin. Official “Sulat” shirts from Doom Shop and Pony discount coupons were available during the event.
