TRACK OF THE WEEK - KONGOS COME WITH ME NOW chosen by @Mishful_Thinkin
For this week's #musicfriday, One UP South Africa contributor, @mishful_thinkin has put forward a tune from a local favourite, Kongos...
So there I was huddled up in between fellow Linkin Park fans in the Cape Town Stadium and as crazed and keen as ever for the show to start. There was chatter about who was opening for them but I paid that detail no attention, because I was so excited to see one of my all-time favourite bands.
Shame. On. Me
I mean, duh, LP was literally life-changing but that’s totally not the point. Besides the personal confusion brought along by a certain rapper with an extended peak’s presence onstage, I was in awe. They were epic; for me, yes admittedly a girl who now lives in Grahamstown and thus has a hindered grip on the local music scene, I had never heard of them before. Like, literally ever. It’s embarrassing and I shall see myself out.
But before I can do that I’d like to leave you all with one of their songs.
It’s catchy, percussion-y, guitar-y and pretty much exactly what you need to get shimmying through until Friday night. You’re totally welcome. It’s called “Come With Me Now”
Follow them on twitter, like them on (Baby)FaceBook peruse and cruise you’re way through their music page
