Dubbele Dosis Heuwels vir jou?

14 May


Vir Die Volkslied, die derde video af die Heuwel se Alles wat Mal Is, het Simon Barnard en Wim Steytler kragte saamgespan om die video vir die lied te ontwikkel en verfilm. Willie Nel, een van die land se voorste kameramanne, het die fotografie behartig.


Die video is in die Noorde van Pretoria geskiet en ondersoek ‘n baie spesifieke subkultuur wat deel van daardie wêreld uit maak.


Oor die video sê Simon Barnard: “Dit is ‘n baie dubbelsinnige stuk werk – karige lewensomstandighede maar gelukkige mense. Die uniekheid van die video lê grootliks in die eerlikheid daarvan”.


Kyk die Volkslied hier:


In ander Heuwels Nuus, word die groep se live DVD, Live op Paul Cluver, môre vrygestel.

Die DVD is verfilm by die  Bloekombos Amfiteater op die Paul Cluver landgoed.

Volgens Pierre Greeff, wou die groep lank reeds daar speel en toe die geleentheid om daar te speel vorendag kom, het die groep nie twee keer gedink nie.


Oor die DVD se Pierre: “Die wonderlike ding van die DVD is dat dit ons katalogus van liedjies op hierdie stadium ordentlik bymekaar bring.”

aKING set to rock 2013!

29 Jan

aKING is undoubtedly one of the most respected rock outfits this country has to offer.

trap - Jaco S Venter - HR

With gut-punching lyrics delivered by a distinctive deep gruff voice on the back of perfectly balanced notes and tunes – it’s hard to understand why these Cape Town boys have not yet landed a major international break.

End last year the band released two brand new tunes – an indication of what fans can expect off their new album (currently in production). Jezebel and Wild child gave indication of aKING going back to their raw rock and roll roots found on Dutch courage – incorporated with the three vocal treatment – and a few other elements – found on The Red Blooded Years.

The singles are music worth the excitement they entice. Jezebel got some added legs with the brilliant light inspired video, courtesy of MK’s MVP project. The song also caused havoc on MFM’s Rock Top 10 as well as the MFM SA Top 10. Although Jezebel hooked my senses within seconds of the first listen – it is Wild Child I keep on constant repeat. The gorgeous layered rock and roll offering, that builds up to a proper grand finale, blows my mind with every listen.

I am thoroughly excited about this new album in production.

I think it safe to say – aKING fans can expect something special.

Fans can keep an eye out for constant updates regarding the albums progress.

In the meantime, fans in Potchefstroom and Cape Town – of course – can rejoice! aKING will be rocking your roots in the coming weeks.

Potch – aKING will be rocking RAG on the Potchefstroom Cricket grounds on the 31st of January. Get there early!

Cape Town – aKING will be entertaining the masses at The Cape Town Tens – the world’s biggest rugby tens tournament – on the 1st of February.
