Up Dharma Down begins something new with third album, ‘Capacities’

It’s been four years, but Up Dharma Down has finally come out with Capacities, their much-awaited third album after the award-winning, critically acclaimed Fragmented and Bipolar. The album has a distinct 80s vibe, which vocalist Armi Millare admitted was a big influence in the songwriting. “That’s the period when we grew up. Listening to music at the time was not hard. It was all over the radio. The music video culture has not matured in terms of the Philippines having not much access to cable television until the 90’s came about,” she said. “For the boys, they went back to synth pop bands and have let go of their more modern favorites.”
