For this week's #musicfriday, One UP South Africa contributor, @mishful_thinkin has put forward a tune from a Synergy Live favourite, Al Bairre...

On one slightly inebriated afternoon last year I made my way through to the LMS stage, an awesome component of the annual event called Synergy Live. It was me, a few of my friends and a whole lot of new faces. A set was well on its way and we decided to form part of the swaying and pseudo-salsa-ing that was taking place as people danced to Al Bairre.

I had never heard of them before and I fear that many of you can say the same. Tragic, simply tragic. Their set was amazing and I hunted them down after the Synergy Live dust had settled, which was hard because I had no idea what their name was. A few days later I came across their Soundcloud page and was successfully reunited with their music.

I’m trying to think of a way to describe said music and the only way I can describe their sound is with this “Right Here In July”

– I know, I’m shoulder-dancing too.

They started in the year 2012 and with their insane variations of instruments, catchy and oh-so sing-a-long-able lyrics they were bound to steal ears and hearts in the local music scene. I declare them a must-hear! Like them on Facebook, follow them on the Twit, or just download their tunes and start grooving. Either way, you need to hear at least one of their songs before the day is done.

Band members: Kyle Davis, Tom Kotze, Tessa Johnson, Julia Johnson, Nick Preen
