New video for Neufvoin's track polar song. Directed by Henri Turunen and filmed in Northern Finland in the area where the colours and the twilight of Polar Song exist in the nature. Neufvoin is currently preparing material for their d├ębut album after their succesfull Fake Musket EP tour in Finland last year.

James Boonzaier (vox guitar), Johnny Kotze (guitar), Patrick Skuce (bass) and Tim King (drums) is Jakkals.  They draw influences from The Velvet Underground, The strokes, Foals to mention a few. Recently they've released a track, Woah! Nelly as a showcase of their talent, which  is downloadable from the link below (right click, save target as). Last year they've gigged around Cape Town, building a solid following of 'happy go lucky' rock luvvers. Go find out more about them on their facebook page.

I'm digging the current indie music scene in Cape Town. Some really talented bands popping up so I'll  do my bit and shed some light on those you should keep an eye out for in 2011.

La Vi was a initially a 3 man act Kenan Tatt (guitar and vocals), Chantel Van Tonder (lead vocals and percussion) and Nick Frost (drums and percussion ), lately they've expanded into a  fuller four man act with Johnny U joining the band. They draw influences from life and music and their interests lie in yoga and tea....zing!!! Below is a vid of them performing at the Hidden Cellar, Stellenbosch this past Friday. Have a look at it and if you like what you see and hear (although this vid does not do justice for this bands talent) head over to their facebook page, jot down their gig dates and go give them some groupie love at their next show.

Supercancer is Paul Melis, Gideon de Kock, Julian Brookstone. They're based in Cape Town and describe their sound as noise pop. They've recently made an appearence on 2OceansVibeRadio and released a free ep on bandcamp. The video is footage of their first gig at the Hidden Cellar this past Friday.

Cape Town based surftronic duo Beach Party is currently one of my favourites for 2011 and they're giving away three of their tracks for free. There's no signs of any live gigs thus far, but I'm keeping my eyes pinned on them for 2011.
