After indie soloist Kian Ransom returned from California to the Philippines in 2013, he had the idea of teaming up with a high school drummer friend and three fine arts students, forming the band The Ransom Collective https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6Fi0mGnX70 with them. For their 20-year-olds and enthusiastic fans, it’s a young band that helps keep them young. In their indie folk sound, you can easily spot immediate musical evidence, without misunderstandings in terms of interpretation. As a band, they work through a creative process that enhances the way they write music as a band.
Also known as TRC, is a Filipino indie folk band based in Manila. In a short time, after the release and entry of new musical talents, the great opportunity to be known by a wider audience, coincided for the band The Ransom Collective https://genius.com/artists/The-ransom-collective with an event connected to Wanderland Wanderband, where in 2014 they ranked first. By writing their songs, the creative spark may come from a person’s originality, but it is everyone’s experience that emerges in their final product.
Performing in concert at the 2014 Wanderland Music and Arts Festival, the band The Ransom Collective https://ransomcollective.com/ released the EP containing the debut single Fools. Sometimes, when listening to a band, you may like a song initially, but end in a negative way. Yet, by listening to any of their musical cravings, your expectations are positively fulfilled. They creatively strive to vary the point of musical level, and they succeed even with a simple violin preceding a hesitant singing.
FOOLS – Eventually we’ll fall asleep, and dream about these past three weeks, or lie awake and dedicate, our thoughts to finding what it means. But when it is all said and done, I can’t think of anyone else. Nothing is just as it seems, at least that what it seems to me. And everybody has a path, but some will walk reluctantly. Well, you can throw your map away, because I’ll be here another day or two. Hope will take its toll and ignite your soul. They will follow the flashes in the dark. They won’t stop until they find where to start. We were told as we grow old, that one day we would find ourselves. But as we aged, everything changed, and we were locked by different spells. Well love is such an abstract art and we each have a different part to play. They will find that overtime, that they can’t help but play along, and as we wait, they hesitate, for fear that something may go wrong. But when the smoke has finally cleared, things are not just as they appeared. Hope will take its toll and ignite your soul. They will follow the flashes in the dark. They won’t stop until they find where to start. Hope will take its toll and ignite your soul. They will follow the flashes in the dark, they won’t stop until they find where to start. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R216962jA7M.
The band The Ransom Collective https://www.redbull.com/my-en/the-rise-of-the-ransom-collective teamed up with other artists in 2015, making a collective vinyl LP album. In May 2017, they released their debut album, including Settled. On their first album, Traces, you can let yourself be enveloped by the exciting Open Road. In their song Something Better, they admirably use an acoustic guitar to create the quiet musical airiness that contrasts with the gloomy opening track.
TRACES – I was young, it was only temporary, soon enough, I was back to ordinary, just in time, a product of my own discretion, off to find a reason for my past intentions. I have learned to manage all my expectations and I’ve returned a modern form of variation for too long. Wrapped up in my hesitation, I was wrong, it was my imagination. Caught up in the mess that we made, lost within the phrases we prayed, traces of the places we stayed. Was this the plan or has it all changed. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=the+ransom+collective+traces&view=detail&mid=B8CBF518815B69C65AEBB8CBF518815B69C65AEB&FORM=VIRE
