One Click Straight is an alternative rock band from Parañaque that started in 2009.
The band consists of three brothers, Sam, Toffer, Tim, and a very close childhood friend, Joel. They started in high school for the sake of rock and roll but, despite being "bano", they continued to strive and progressed in to what One Click Straight is today. Bringing fun and upbeat sounds to their audience for the whole "One-Click-Straight-Experience".
OCS is heavily influenced by alternative rock bands like Switchfoot, Relient K, and Foo Fighters. What their band gives is a punchy sound of alternative/pop rock music with a flavor of pop-punk and power-pop. They've created this raw original sound and tied it up into their image.
The band started with jam sessions in 2009 until 2011, when they started to write their own material and started to play gigs. Their first EP was a school project for the older brother in the College of Saint Benilde. The 6 track extended play was released in December 2013, entitled "Sticks, Stones, and an Apology".

They have an upcoming 4 track EP to be released sometime this summer. The songs on this are mostly about what young adults and teenagers going through and the struggles of the adolescents today. This EP includes "Lose My Mind" and "Shaken" which are songs about being in love and being confused.
One Click Straight contributes to the local rock scene by playing in bars throughout Metro Manila. They also play at Assumption Antipolo and other schools wherein most of their fan base is structured, which consists of students and other artists they play alongside or that come and watch their shows.
The band is currently focusing more on recording and developing their sound.
One Click Straight is all about being fun, happy, and living life. Their sound reflects on what they believe in. With their raw energy and authentic sound, they're set apart from the hundreds of bands in the Philippines. If you can't relate to a song, you'll find yourself moving to their music.
