LONG OVERDUE BY KATE TORRALBA

Five years in the making, Cebuana fashion designer Kate Torralba launched her much-awaited debut album, aptly titled Long Overdue. A mishmash of sounds accompanied by Kate’s piano prowess, it features diverse genres from lounge pop to disco. What came to be a surprise for many, Kate takes a break from fashion as she goes back to her first love – music.

“This has been the toughest project for me to complete, but only because I’m not picky by nature and I really wanted to have a good album. I still get really stunned when I hear [Pictures] playing on the radio or at a music venue in between sets – it’s so surreal!” – Kate Torralba (Quimbo, Shari. “Kate Torralba” Zee Lifestyle. Dec.-Jan. 2014: 104-107)

Now a local crowd favorite, her song Pictures has been getting a lot of airplay with its catchy and upbeat mood. The fashion designer boasts her distinctive voice and piano skills in this engaging 11-track lineup. Her Monkey Song (Nokiesque) and funky Video will surely be candidates for your last song syndrome.

Long Overdue is available on iTunes.
