2 Years Apart




 

Cheston on the vocals. Christian on the guitar.

I saw this video on YouTube. I literally burst out laughing after a few seconds of watching it. The guitarist is hilariously annoying. With his eyebrows, raising them every now and then.. "Panira ng mood! Hahaha!" It was a bit distracting, yes. Still, I was hooked. Ignoring the silly guitarist, that was some good singing coming from the other guy.

So I checked their Facebook page. The name of the band is 2 Years Apart, with Cheston Uy on the Guitars and Vocals, and Chester Uy on the Bass and Back-up Vocals. They are based on Quezon City, Philippines and they play alternative rock renditions of famous modern and classic songs*.




Chester and Cheston Uy

The brothers are musically inclined. Admirable. Apparently, the two boys are formerly conjoined twins. I'm not totally sure which ones, though. "A 2-man band that consist of formerly conjoined twins." - It says on their Facebook page.



Brothers.. Calvin, Cheston, Chester and Christian

  1. Jar Of Hearts is a lovely song, and they did a good job with it. Except for like you said, the guitarist and his eyebrows. Just don't watch the video and your safe. It kind of detracts from the emotionality of the song, but they still captured that with the music. So it's good.

    1. Yes.. I don't get why they have to have the "eyebrow" thing in the video.. It destroys the mood.

  15. Kanya-kanya ng style yan at nakatulong din ang pagtaas ng kilay ng gitarista para mapansin ang grupo nila.
