Soft Pillow Kisses is just another band who's yet to be heard by ears who yearns for music
that oozes with beauty, grace, sophistication and little doses of danger and chaos... a must hear if you truly care.
Melodic music, girl-boy vocals, easy-listening type but would oftentimes incorporate noise in some parts of their songs, emphasis on breathy vocals, jangly guitars and feel-good harmonies. Basically, soft pillow kisses is a combination of everything good that's been happening in the "indie" music scene (world wide) for the past few years.
Starting out in the 3rd quarter of '99 as candyaudioline after two members of candyaudioline (Cheng and Obie) decided to quit to persue their studies. They were able to play one gig as candyaudioline but not long after the two outgoing members decided to return. Not wanting to let go of his two new recruits, Allan decided to hold on to the line-up but under a different guise. At first,the two bands were being confused with one another because of the similarities of the members but it not take long after the difference became evident with the acquisition of AJ (also a former candyaudioline member) and Gilbert (of Aspirin and Superminty) plus the fact that they were shifting into a more popish, lounge-bossanova type of music. They recorded a 5-song cassette ep titled, "As you whisper in my ear" which was released in Cebu during the bands summer gig with fellow indie bands Sonnet 58 and Soda Jerk in the middle of the year 2000.
To date, Soft Pillow Kisses is composed of Luie, Allan, Lara, Charles and John Paul. They recorded 2 tracks for a local "indie" compilation one song of which - "It Will Never Last (Forever)" - have been receiving positive raves both here and in some parts of the globe. They were suppose to release a CD via foreign "ïndie" label Shelflife records, composed of 8 songs in the near future but has decided not to push thru.
