Farrington Heights is an unsigned rock band inspired by the songwriting tradition of Eraserheads, Oasis, The Beatles, and Aerosmith. They believe that a band is only as good as the song that they write and a good song, like any work of art, should have heart and soul.
Farrington Heights is comprised of brothers Aristotle “Atari”Santos (rhythm guitar) and Aries "Reese" Santos (lead guitar). After being impressed with one of his younger brother's songs, Reese decided to put some lead guitar lines to Atari's raw, acoustic compositions and things just sparked between the two of them. They decided then and there that they should form a band and put their music out for everyone. Coincidentally, Jonas “ Matt “ Dela Cruz, Reese's college buddy and former band mate just came back from his stint singing in Korea and they immediately recruited him as their vocalist. The trio posted online ads at a local music forum to complete their line-up and that's where they met bassist RJ Erese and drummer Dennis Cervantes.
Since then, Farrington Heights have been consistently playing all over Metro Manila and some of their most notable gigs were when they played in the same bill as Razorback (Jack TV: Boombox Live), opened for Bamboo (Jack TV: Jackstock Festival), opened for Sugar Hiccup's album tour, and most recently guested in ABS-CBN's Music Uplate Live.
Farrington Heights have also guested at Mellow 94.7's top rated program Girl Talk early this year. Early this year they have recorded their second 3-song demo titled "The End Of Reason" which can be listened to at http://www.facebook.com/farringtonheights. Their first 3-song demo, "The Billboards Along The Highway," is also available for listening at the same web page. Videos of the band can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/farringtonheights. As of this time, 4 other original English songs and 2 new Tagalog songs are yet to be recorded.
