Sponge Cola drops new single

AFTER a concert tour in Canada to mark their 20th anniversary as a band, Sponge Cola returns with a new single inspired by the K-drama Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha. Combining grunge rock elements with electronic textures and anthemic pop sounds, Sponge Cola’s “Hometown” is a song about coming home after a long, tiring journey. The rock tune was penned by vocalist and guitarist Yael Yuzon as a way to reimagine the coastal town, with its nosy neighbors forming a tight community, and a love story that “felt very warm and familiar,” despite being entirely new and foreign. “I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome given that it was written about a fictional piece,” Mr. Yuzon said in a statement. “As a writer, I was one layer away from phenomena that should have made the end product more removed, disconnected. Instead, we ended up with something more visceral, something that resonates from within.” “Hometown” is available on all the digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment.

The staging is part of Ballet Manila’s Holiday Cheer Series, a new annual Christmas tradition of the company. “It is our first full-length ballet since the pandemic shrunk the number of dancers in the company.
