This group of rockers, who have roots in South Africa, have been out on tour in Europe but have found room in their schedule to swing by the capital for a very special one off show this evening.
Blending driving rhythms and pulsing, euphoric rock with an electronic edge that calls to mind the sweeping, swooning bars of trance, they’re a band that truly defy classification, not least with there even being hints of Bono’s soaring vocals in frontman Beukes Willemse. They have a new album, Animal, out now – their third following 2009’s Sign Language and 2012’s Fire to Fire. And let us just say this – lead in single Chemicals is an absolute barmstormer of a treat that has been all over Kerrrang! And TeamRock Radio of late. It’s utterly irresistible, instantly infectious, and demanding of a replay – it is going to be the next mainstay of your morning commute/ Friday night playlist!
