Sponge Cola

The Filipino alternative-rock band, whose members have been together for over two decades, just released their ninth studio album, Hometown, Part 2. Made up of Yael, Armo, Gosh, and Tedmark, Sponge Cola considers their latest work a “therapeutic outlet for expression and healing.”

The full-length album – which is a follow-up to 2022’s Hometown – tackles themes such as triumph over adversity, resilience, and unfulfilled relationships. The songwriting was inspired by “the members’ collective and individual fascination with K-drama and documentaries,” as well as their own experiences with real-life events.
