Thai Sensation Phum Viphurit and IV of Spades Come Together for Final Karpos Live Show of 2019
Just a few days after the last Karpos Live show—French multi-instrumetalist FKJ and South Korean indie pop sensation ADOY—and the concert junkies at Karpos Multimediea are at it again. Playing in the last edition of the live music series for the year are another pair of exciting musical artists.
Mix 10 of Karpos Live will feature Thai neo-soul singer-songwriter Phum Viphurit and homegrown heroes IV of Spades.
Twenty-four-year-old Viphurit first burst into the mainstream with his breezy songs “Lover Boy” and “Long Gone” in 2018, although he had been making music long before then. Having grown up in New Zealand and in his native Thailand, Viphurit combines his mixed cultural upbringing in his music, singing in English about his unique life experiences.
Viphurit calls his songs “sunshine music,” with elements of indie pop, soul and folk. Having already performed in the US, the Thai artist is already something of a pop star in his native country and is slowly winning fans over in the rest of Southeast Asia. There’s no doubt his Filipino fans will be there tonight to support a fast-rising talent.
IV of Spades, meanwhile, needs no introduction. The trio of Zild Benitez, Blaster Silonga and Badjao de Castro is arguably one of the most popular OPM artists currently active in the music scene, and their star shows no signs of dimming anytime soon. Their debut album, the 70s-disco-meets-modern-rock-tinged Clap!Clap!Clap! has been widely acclaimed by both critics and fans alike. The band has also toured extensively both locally and internationally, playing in the US and in music festivals like Clockenflap in Hong Kong, and most recently headlining a successful concert in Singapore last November 8.
Karpos Live Mix 10 promises to close out the year with an unforgettable show from these two artists at the peak of their musical careers.
Karpos Live Mix 10 is happening on Wednesday, November 20, at Filinvest Tent, Alabang. Regular tickets priced at PHP2500+. Visit karposlive.com and follow @karposlive for more details.
