Pretoria based rock band Stones and Gold have released a live video for their track “Nightmares and Dreams”. The video was recorded at Misty Waters Festival by Dizzy Khaki. “Nightmares and Dreams” is taken from the band’s new EP Rogue which is set for release on the 15th of February 2019.
Vocalist and Guitarist Stephen Kosterman had this to say about the video and the track
“It was an honest and rough experience recording the live track with Dizzy Khaki, we played a festival at 1 AM in the morning and it was perfect to really capture the kind of band we are live, with tons of energy on stage, while being a little rough and rock n roll around the edges.
Dizzy stayed out of the way as much as possible to try to capture as accurately as possible. He has magic editing skills and a great team of videographers capturing the best possible angles. On this video what you see is what we are musically and visually.“
The track is dark and light, describing the music industry itself, comprising of nightmares and dreams. Best described in a live setting, as the stage is where we live and breathe music and it happens only once in that specific time and space, which is the most honest way of capturing the message of the song.”

The band was formed in 2015 by Stephen Kosterman, SL Leroux Minnaar, Duncan Potgieter and Raziela Kosterman. Stones & Gold have played all over South Africa during their existence from small clubs and venues to festivals like Smoking Dragon Festival, Misty Waters and Afrique Train Fest.
They’ve shared the stage with the likes of Fokofpolisiekar, Dan Patlanksy, Southern Wild, Bye Beneco, The Black Cat Bones and others. This has sharpened up their live performance and honed down their sound to what it is today. It’s a brew of alternative, funk, grunge and psychedelic rock.
Stones and Gold released their first single ‘Surprise Surprise’ in 2016. They released their debut EP in May 2017. They’ve also released a live acoustic video for ‘Slightly Crooked’ and a live video for ‘Nowhere is Here’.
