Asleep In Transit – Brother, Sister
If memory serves me correct, Durban act Asleep In Transit were semi-locals at Unit 11 on any genre-specific evening. For some reason I never got to sit down and listen to them properly… until someone sent me the link to their new music video. Seriously, it’s quite cool.
The video is well shot. I want to say the guitar could sound just a little less tinny but I have a feeling it might be like a whole quasi-folk sound-vibe or something… so I’ll stay out of that one. Beautiful harmonies, beautiful people… nice.
I’ll be honest and say I half expected them to let me down lyrically, in that I assumed everything would rhyme in that painfully obvious way that tends to be the Achilles heel of a lot of groups in this genre. They nail it musically and melodically, but are often unpracticed and shockingly weak lyrically.
Again, not so here.
Just a good flipping track if you’re into this vibe and from what I can gather there’s an EP out. So we all win. Another quality Durban band coming up the ranks… surely?!
