Millennial rock sound echoed around the TWBA studio as emerging music group, Jose Carlito performed their launching single titled “Big White Wall.” The five-piece band is comprised of Seth Gothico, JZ Lorenzo, AJ Ascona, Katsumi Kabe, and frontman JC Padilla who is better known as the younger brother of the King of Hearts Daniel Padilla.
For JZ, the newest in the group, the best part of being in the Jose Carlito band is the shared friendship among the members. Seth admitted that there are several misconceptions about being in a band but at the end of the day, what matters is they are able to create something that affects their listeners. “Sa banda, mayroong impression na ‘bad boys’ kasi kaya nilang gawin lahat, eh. Maangas naman kasi talaga ‘yung tao na maraming kayang gawin. Pero masaya siya kasi ‘yung ginagawa mo tumatatak,” Seth expressed.
While they may be different individuals, the band clarified that they rarely get into debates especially when weaving a song altogether. “Big White Wall,” for example, was a team effort.
The bunch is lucky to have a superstar like Daniel Padilla supporting their journey. In fact, the Kapmilya actor had multiple roles in creating Jose Carlito’s music video for “Big White Wall.” Katsumi revealed that he used to be Daniel’s bandmate ten years ago and they also worked together in the movie “The How’s of Us”. “Magkakapitbahay kasi kami, so nabuo ‘yung banda namin. Nagkataon lang na nabigyan siya ng blessing ni Lord na maging superstar,” Katsumi quipped.
When asked if Daniel is already planning to take Kathryn Bernardo’s hand in marriage, JC said that the couple seems headed to that path.
It is no surprise that all the boys chose KathNiel as their favorite love team. According to JC, the last time he felt ‘kilig’ was fifteen years ago when he spotted Julia Barretto in person. As response to Daniel’s questions, JC revealed that Jessy Mendiola his biggest celebrity crush.
