I got the chance to listen to Out of the Box and M.Y.M.P perform last night at my college. I was one of the people in charge of the event and even got to talk to them for a bit (paltry conversation, but still lol).
M.Y.M.P isn’t really my sort of music — they’re more on slow songs. But if you do like songs like those, then they’re a pretty good band to listen to. Two of the members are alumnis from my college. :) (gods, I’m not bragging, I’m just mentioning this, I swear)
Out of the Box are comprised of eight members — seven guys and one girl. They’re an acapella band (or at least, I think that’s what you call them) from Ateneo de Manila University, and plainly put, they’re fantastic. They sing mostly the latest songs (with an exception of a mix of Micheal Jackson songs) and are purely acapella — the drums, the guitars, all the instruments come from their vocal chords and sound like the real thing, sometimes even better. The guitar riff one of them did for Maroon 5’s “Harder to Breathe” was fantastic.
I’ve run out of adjectives so I’m ending this quick.
