We are taken by cars


Fueled by deep friendships, collaborative writing efforts, contradiction..light and shade, build and release, and lush instrumentation… Sarah, Isa, Bryce, Bryan and Siopao, have come together as Taken by Cars. Defined by Endings of a New Kind, evolved by Dualist and now departing from the past with current album,  Plagues, the five from Manila intertwine a passion for all things music with the most colorful of personal lives. Thriving in the influences of indie rock, new wave shoegaze and dream pop, the band merge their similarly stimulated energies into pieces  all their own.

Most likely to be found at your nearest bars or productions making beautiful noise.
