The Converse Get Out Of The Garage 2014 competition had an impressive 335 acts entering their track singles this year to be judged by three music legends: Catherine Grenfell, HHP and Darryl Torr. They cut the list down to 10 of the best. A total of 8 746 votes were cast for the country’s hottest unsigned acts.
Last week the organizers announced that Early Hours is the 2014 winner of the #GOOTG campaign and will indeed Get Out of the Garage in the next few months as they head off to London to introduce their unique music style to the rest of the world.
To get an idea of their sound, listen to their track, “Back to Front” by clicking the Play button below:
Incredibly humbled to be part of the Top 10, Early Hours said, “Playing beyond our borders has always been on our bucket list, despite our love for Cape Town. Victory means sweet freedom – we’ve been trapped in this garage for far too long, and we desperately need to get out of here.”
But the competition didn’t end there. Converse will also be announcing the winning fan to accompany Early Hours over soon Facebook and via Twitter. Fans of Early Hours can check out the Converse website for updates and videos as the band jet-off to Europe and America later this year.
