Members: Thea Castillo, Emil dela Rosa, Ron dela Cruz, Bryan Gadia, Dave Pimentel
Quezon City, Philippines based band, Faintlight, began in the summer of 2005. Originally was a trio with Ron Dela Cruz and Bryan Gadia on guitars and Dave Pimentel on drums. For a year and a half, the three wrote and composed their music.
But still feeling a bit short on their materials and musicality, the trio soon became a quintet. Luck struck when the band met Emil Dela Rosa (2007) and Aki Hawkins (2009) who filled in the missing pieces of this musical puzzle. Their musical influences was an explicit manifestation that the band is back on track. Wanting to diverge from the band's original sound, they played around the idea of reinventing their old materials and influences to come out with something fresh.
With their new profound sound and style, Faintlight vowed to give it's audience an illuminating sound and captivating live performances.
