The next single to be released soon by THE VANILLA is both as euphonious in flavourful sound and rhythms as this 4-piece feel-good pop band’s name. Band members, Tyan Odendal (guitar and lead vocals), Jaen-Pierre Dowling (bass), Francois Keyser (drums) and Barthlo Visagie (lead guitar and synth), are planning to serve up the ultimate summer ballad with their next highly anticipated single, Little Thoughts.

Their latest track doesn’t disappoint and is jam-packed with galvanizing synth and catchy guitar riffs that will light up a crowd at any sunset soirée this summer. The single was inspired by the unpredictable ways of an all too familiar human emotion, love. Composers, Tyan Odendal and Dolf Willemse describes the narrative of the lyrics as, “the story of a younger girl cheating on her boyfriend with a much older guy. She falls madly in love with her new Romeo, but he has no intentions of sticking around.” Summing up that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side - a phenomenon that they feel a couple of guys their age has either personally gone through and can relate to.

THE VANILLA are planning to bring this next single out with a bang next week with a digital release on Soundcloud and Band Camp. Fans can stay updated on The Vanilla’s social pages.

The funkadelic foursome have enjoyed a notably quick, but steady climb in the local music industry to become one of the best new acts in SA since their debut in March this year. They have performed at some of the most prestigious venues in Cape Town, played with various big-name artists and secured great performance slots at 3 music festivals (OppiKoppi, Up The Creek & River Republic).

This coming Friday, fans can catch The Vanilla performing at The Assembly with FRANCOIS VAN COKE and DIE HEUWELS FANTASTIES. facebook.com

Make sure you stay tuned to get a taste of The Vanilla’s latest single 'Little Thoughts' to be released soon. It’s sure to be worth the wait.

Afrikaans alternative pop group, DIE HEUWELS FANTASTIES, is back with a brand new music video from their Ja.Nee.Lekker. Deluxe album. They teamed up with Riana Nel to present Doen Net Wat Ons Wil (We Do What We Want).

 “This song is a dialogue between a man and a woman. I believe the message is that when people disagree about things, it is mostly best to let it go, because if you think about it the next day, you fought about something that doesn’t really matter all that much… #DoenNetWatOnsWil.” Pierre Greeff, lead singer of Die Heuwels Fantasties.
