It’s that time of the week again… Today’s Friday Loud tunes comes to you from the top notch South African rock band, the Black Cat Bones. These Pretoria-based boytjies won the MK Award for the Best Live act earlier in 2013 and released a new studio album, Beateripiller, in May this year.
The Black Cat Bones have played at almost every major music festival in South Africa, including Oppikoppi, RAMFest and Up the Creek and have been making waves in the SA Music industry over the last few years. Having seen them live multiple times this year I can safely say that they ARE one of the best live acts in our country.
Their on-stage antics (which has included things like their bassist throwing his bass 5 metres or more into the air at RAMFest Cape Town this year, the frontman climbing up things that many musos would not dare to and fireworks during their show at RAMFest) and the way they interact with the crowd and get the party started is absolutely amazing. If you have not seen these blokes live, you should really make a plan – you will not be disappointed.
Earlier this week the Black Cat Bones released a video for their song “Send Me Back”. The video was directed by their frontman, Kobus De Kock Jr and was filmed by photographer and videographer Louise Pieterse. According to De Kock Jr: “Up until now we haven’t explored the medium of story telling through video and this little expedition has been an exciting look into that world!.” I think this is a brilliant first attempt to do just that, but don’t take my word for it, check out the video below:
