December holidays are on the horizon and there’s no better way to get ready for a much-needed break, than with a relaxing day at Large On The Lawn with Jeremy Loops and Matthew Mole. Large On The Lawn returns on Sunday 25 November 2018 at Marks Park in Emmarentia.
Large On The Lawn has become Johannesburg’s answer to the Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts, creating a beautiful day out with friends and family on a blanket with drinks and snacks, making for the perfect way to spend a Sunday.
What has Jeremy Loops been up to?
Jeremy Loops recently released his latest single and music video for “Gold”, taken from his current studio album Critical As Water. The third single off Critical As Water sets the tone for the album with a rousing call-and-response chorus that’s bold and hopeful, against what often feels like insurmountable odds.This battle of staving off hopelessness against daunting odds, weaves together an album that feels like a repeated release from the many pressures society places on us.
He leapt into 2018 with the massive hit single ‘Waves’ and the release of his Critical As Water album which was supported with a world tour, seeing Loops reaching over 50,000 fans internationally and headlining a sold out show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London. Jeremy Loops is currently on tour with Milky Chance in North America.
Recently it was announced that he will perform a once-off headline show at the iconic Roundhouse in London on 16 February 2019. Jeremy Loops is the first South African musician to do so since the venue reopened in 2006.
The venue is one of the most renowned art houses in the world. The 172-year-old institution, with a 3500-person capacity, has played host to legends of music, including The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix and The Ramones. Contemporary stars like Radiohead and Bon Iver have called The Roundhouse home for their headline shows in London as well.
What has Matthew Mole been up to?
In July 2016 Matthew Mole released his highly anticipated sophomore album Run. The album reached the No. 1 position on iTunes South Africa and the album’s first single, Run achieved Gold Status within 3 months of release. The album was also nominated for Best Pop Album, Best Produced Album and Record of the Year at SAMA 23.
He took a different turn from his debut offering, The Home We Built. This change is evident not only from a sonic and lyrical perspective but also aesthetically. The album has produced hit singles “Run”, “Holding On”, “Light” and “Inside Out”.
