Manila-based alternative octet Cheats were among the first Filipino bands we introduced on beehype, and remain one of our favourite names on the scene.
Last year brought their awaited debut album, simply titled “Cheats“: a collection of 11 tracks built of layered vocals, enthusiastic guitar riffs, relentless drums and a bustling kind of energy that tends to transmit from speakers to listeners so easily.
“Drunk” is the closing track off that release, and it’s Cheats’ latest single – now accompanied by a fantastically simple video by STRONGHOLDMNL. It’s also your chance to meet all eight members of the band, acting as Uber passengers in various states of “Drunk”.
