Stick Figgas hits home with their new album “Realistick”

We The Pvblic

The much-awaited second album of Stick Figgas “Realistick” dropped last January 26 under music label MCA Music Inc!

The nine track album features fan favorites such as “Lamanloob,” “Mukha ng Pera,” a new version of “Nandito Lang Ako,” and their latest viral track “Ubasan”.

From Stick Figgas’ first album, “Critical Condition”, which was recorded back when the group was still a duo to their new album, “Realistick”, the group has since expanded into a solid group of eight.

Stick Figgas is composed of members Loonie, Ron Heley, and Kat Agarrado on vocals; Jc Sebastian on guitar; Tuts Calinawan on bass; Macky Brillantes on drums; Bboy Garcia on turntables, and Nikki Cabardo on keyboard. With this new incarnation of Stick Figgas comes a new dynamic for the group personally and musically. When asked what it’s like to have so many members in a group, they jokingly said, “Mahirap dahil hintayan sa schedule.”

“Challenging siya pero kailangan lang ng patience, commitment, at matinding friendship.”

Kidding aside, one member said, “Pag mag-isa ka lang, mas mabilis ka makakarating. Pero pag marami kayo, mas malayo ang mararating.” True enough, the album, “Realistick” is proof that Stick Figgas will indeed go far as a group.

From the album name itself, “Realistick”, Stick Figgas hit the nail with their hard-hitting yet smooth flowing tracks that tackle both light and heavy real-life experiences of them as artists, people, and Filipinos.

When asked where they get their inspiration for this album, they said, “Nakukuha namin ‘yan sa mga [pangkaraniwan] namin na karanasan sa buhay. Mga terms na ginagamit namin tuwing nag ja-jam kami, mga jokes, at mga seryosong bagay.”. They also take the time to write songs inspired by one another, which is where they got their inspiration from when they wrote the track, “Ubasan”. They said, “Kinikilala muna namin yung bawat isa. Doon namin kinukuha yung mga sinusulat namin para makabuo kami ng mga likhang awitin.”. Of course, the group’s humor and funny side would always come out when one said, “..tsaka ang deadline. Ang tunay na inspirasyon!” as an answer to what inspires them when writing songs.
