NOBITA releases soulful new track
Fresh off the success of viral hit “Unang Sayaw,” Filipino pop-rock outfit NOBITA has released a new single “Paruparo Na Walang Hanggan,” which plays on the band’s musical strengths, blending deeply personal lyrics with soulful, harmony-laden arrangements. While it’s a love song to the core, “Paruparo Na Walang Hanggan” embraces a more intricate sonic direction, with choir-like elements, sparse keyboard textures, and bluesy chords to create something slightly out of the ordinary. The song will be included in the setlist for their upcoming six-city tour in the US, which kicks off in Las Vegas, Nevada on Aug. 11 and wraps up in Fairfax, Virginia on Aug. 26. Tickets are available at www.ToggleSwitchPH.com. “Paruparo Na Walang Hanggan” is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment.
Pokémon Sleep app out this month
The next challenge for Pokémon games is to bring fresh entertainment to sleeping. In Pokémon Sleep, the player can track their sleep at night, study the gathered Pokémon sleep styles the next morning, and raise up Snorlax nice and big during the day. The more sleep the user gets, and the bigger Snor-lax becomes, the more Pokémon the user will be able to meet, and the more sleep styles the user will be able to discover. To use the app, the user must place their smart device or Pokémon GO Plus + by their pillow to track their sleep. Sleep consistency (in other words,sleeping habits) is evaluated based on a week-long sleep-tracking period that begins every Monday. The app has a “bedtime” feature that helps the user get into the habit of consistent sleeping by letting them set a target time to go to bed. If the user goes to bed at their target time, they can earn a stamp on their stamp card and receive rewards. For details visit the app’s page on Google Play and on the Pokémon Sleep official Twitter page (https://twitter.com/PokemonSleepApp).
