More on each band:
Son of Hawk is a high-energy fast-paced rock band founded in Jeffreys Bay in 2017, since relocated to Pretoria. Their never-ending journey has seen them make a lot of friends and fans along the way, supporting top SA acts at well-established and reputable venues, recording in several studios, hitting the big stages, never once slowing down. With guest artists their style could be described as a mix between hard rock, swamp boogie, modern blues, ska, and the odd metal groove. The album subject matter deals with random topics ranging from party anthems, voodoo-women, travellers-tales, break-ups, hook-ups, and the afterlife. Their self-titled debut album features guest spots by South African heavyweights such as Albert Frost, André Kriel (The Black Cat Bones), Jaco Mans (Bok van Blerk, Tidal Waves), and William Bishop (Fuzigish).
Die Horries is not just a band, it’s a state of mind of the surreal, the absurd, and the abstract. This is exactly what Die Horries broadcast unto our understanding of this cosmic existentialism. Or maybe it is just an intriguing musical act thriving under chaos. Either way, the band performs a unique blend of genre-defying musical soup with front-woman Vici Fourie’s relentless ferocity and unstoppable moxie. It is a perfect recipe for mind blowing, epiphany-inducing, jaw-dropping shows. If “weird yet wonderful” is your thing, then you’ve just entered the rabbit hole, friend. Take a seat your journey has just begun.
