Today aKING released a new music video for their song Catch Alight. The song was released on theird 3rd studio album, Red Blooded Years, earlier this year. The music video for the song was done by Am I Collective in collaboration with Egg Films (Kevin Fitzgerald & Jon Ronbeck) and Cosmesis Prosthetics Studio. The video plays off in a dodgy hotel room and according to it’s YouTube description “It’s loaded with stunts, action, blood and of course some sexual shit.”
I recently watched aKING perform at Mokha Rock Lounge in Pretoria. They did not play a lot of their new songs, but the few they that made it onto their set-list that night were damn impressive. Red Blooded Years is still growing on me, but I do considered it as one of the best albums that have been released this year. It almost seems that aKING are growing musically and they’re not done with the local music industry at all. I still think that they could be one of South Africa’s best musical exports.
They have been confirmed for Oppikoppi 2011 Unknown (which takes place early in August) and I’m definitely looking forward to their set. aKING have a gig lined up this week at Studio 7 in Cape Town (limited tickets are available) and they are also playing at Big 5 at the Wavehouse in Durban on the 25th June (along with Prime Circle, Flash Republic, Just Jinger, Jax Panik). Get your butt down to one of these shows and support SA Music.
This is the music video for Catch Alight:
