Cup of Joe is  getting some well-deserved attention.

The Baguio-based band is currently surging on Spotify with a couple of their songs getting ample streams on the platform.

The band is currently sitting on top of Spotify’s “Pinoy Indie Mix” with their song “Ikaw Pa Rin Ang Pipiliin Ko.”

Another track, titled “Mananatili,” is also in the Top 10 of said popular playlist.

The band saw an uptick of streams on the popular streaming service after their label offered fans a new lyric video for “Estranghero.”

Since then, “Estranghero” has also cracked into Spotify’s Viral Hits Philippines playlist and OPM Rising playlists Top 10.

Cup Of Joe, which includes vocalists Gian Bernardino and Raphaell Ridao, keyboardist Xen Gareza, lead guitarist Gab Fernandez, bassist Raphael “Seve” Severino and guitarist CJ Fernandez, is also getting an unlikely push some fans of Nobita started recommending Cup Of Joe to fellow listeners.

This after Nobita had a bit of an issue that they have since refuted and cleared with an official statement.

Those who did flock to Cup Of Joe did not regret doing so as they have since enjoyed the music of the band and have been listening not only to “Estranghero” but other tracks released by Cup Of Joe.
