Lyrics from Let’s Go SlowThe Gentle Isolation hails from the Philippines, specifically from Meycauayan, Bulacan, a northern province close to Manila. Despite this, the band’s strongest influences come from halfway around the world in the UK. Most of the band members have played together for over ten years, formerly in a new wave band called Satellite Five, before forming indie-pop focused The Gentle Isolation. The Gentle Isolation have built up a strong local presence, playing at venues in and around Metro Manila and opening for Swedish pop duo Club 8. In 2010 they released their first EP on Lilystars Records, and have since recorded a song for a tribute album to UK band Blueboy. The band is hard at work on their debut album.
