Curt Smith, Tears for Fears: “Finally getting to listen to CD’s given to me this year and Up Dharma Down‘s Bipolar is pretty great!”

Paul Buchanan, The Blue Nile: “My favorite group. Beautiful, victorious, elegant, muscular music.”

Tim Bowness, No-Man: “Bringing together an intense and original combination of styles and influences and blessed with the beguiling voice of Armi Millare, Up Dharma Down are a hit waiting to happen.”

Marc Cole, BBC Radio: “The Manila band most likely to cross over to the lucrative Anglophone market of North America.”


Up Dharma Down takes elements from different genres and combines them to create a sound that is uniquely their own. Many of their listeners have tried to categorise their music, but the best way to understand their music is to press play.
