aKING: Safe as Houses

Have to say: Loving local SA music at the moment. Here’s another special piece by aKING, a relatively new band formed from the old Fokofpolisiekar. They’re going for a more mainstream sound, I guess. It’s not a bad music video either… set in Cape Town, Sea Point I think? The deep vocals from Laudo Liebenberg, together with a higher duet, give it a unique sound. Listen to the words too. Awesome.

    Top class music Matt, great call.

    These dudes are incredible. The originators of Fokofpolisiekar (sp) are unmistakable and brilliant in AKing!

    Great find.

    Yeah agree with you guys… the Lark video (going GI in that futuristic complex) is still one of the best for me; and the new Dirty Skirts is also very interesting.
