Die Heuwels Fantasties – Sonrotse

A while ago I featured a song by Afrikaans Electro outfit, Die Heuwels Fantasties on this blog. Die Heuwels Fantasties blasted onto the South African music scene in 2009. Recently the band released a new video for their song, Sonrotse (directly translated as “Sun Rocks” in English). Die Heuwels Fantasties are definately one of my current favorite artists in South Africa. They truly impressed me with their performance at Oppikoppi this year. The photo below was taken by your’s truly at Oppikoppi this year at their performance. Sonrotse is taken off their self-titled debut album released earlier this year. Die Heuwels Fantasties are performing on the 19th of September in Hatfield Sqaure in Pretoria at Vrede Fest III along with aKING and a few other bands. I might attend this yearly event this year since it’s in my hometown, Pretoria. A performance by VanFokKingTasties is planned at the Sun City Superbowl for the 24th of September this year (Heritage day in South Africa). The name, VanFokkingTasties, is actually made up out of 4 different band names. Die Heuwels Fantastieswill be performing live along with their friends Van Coke Cartel, aKING and Fokofpolisiekar. This promises to be a legendary and memorable gig for anyone who is a fan of South African music. I’m sure we’ll see more of this band in the future, maybe even a new album by next year.

This is the video for Sonrotse, which was made in Mozambique, followed by the lyrics:

As die son bo hierdie rotse opkom
Gaan almal weet wat ek nog altyd weet
‘n Mens het sy limiet
Al wat jy het is wat die wêreld vir jou bied
Ek weet ons is uniek
Ek weet

Ek wens ons was generiese gedaantes
Wat generies in mekaar in pas
My elmboog omhoog
Gereeld te hoog gelig

Vroumens ons moet vlug

Vroumens ons moet vlug

Want ek’s mos gees vat
Kaal keiser
Omgekoop en omgedop
Net my ligaam loop hier rond
Donderwolk
Drama-oë
Sien net wat jy glo
Die peilings het al lankal bewys
Ons moet hier uit
Vroumens ons moet vlug
As ‘n bekende gesig
Soos ‘n vreemdeling lyk
Windloopneus
Al weer
Al die stuifmeel opgeruik
‘n Mens oorskry gereeld sy limiet
Als wat daar was
Het ek gevat
Als wat die wêreld (ons) verbied

Ek wens ons was generiese gedaantes
Wat generies in mekaar in pas
My elmboog omhoog
Gereeld te hoog gelig

Vroumens ons moet vlug

Vroumens ons moet vlug

Ek probeer my bes
Ek sweer
Ek probeer my bes
Ek sweer
Ek probeer my bes
Ek sweer
Ek probeer my bes
Ek sweer ek probeer
Ek sweer ek probeer
Ek sweer ek probeer

Vroumens ons moet vlug
