Steve Umculo and Kiruna-Lind Devar Release The Video for New Single 'Just Kids'

By Press Release / Off The Press / Friday, 15 November 2019 10:06

'Just Kids' is the new single from Johannesburg based Steve Umculo, an upbeat and energetic singer/songwriter whose music is a tasty blend between folky harmonies and afro-centric grooves. Steve maintains a seamless balance between sing-along melodies and dance-inducing grooves; his live show is as zestful as his personality.
 
The track features vocals by Kiruna-Lind Devar, a professional singer, dancer and actress who studied at The National School of Arts in Johannesburg. She has fast become a regular feature on globally renowned musical theatre stages including prominent shows such as Janice Honeyman’s Snow White, My Favourite Things & the touring production of the Phantom of the Opera to name a few. She is now directing her attention toward writing her own material and is working her way to releasing an album in 2020.
 
“The original premise of Just Kids is the sad reality that faces social dynamics in society today. People, at times, seem more occupied with their cellphones than they are with other human beings’ comments, Steve.
 
This thought process, in conjunction with reflecting on simpler times, is what lead him to start writing the song.  Feeling that the second verse lacked depth and that it would work well as a duet, Steve decided to ask Kiruna-Lind to help complete the song as he explains, “Kiruna-Lind brought a brand-new energy and innocence that I hadn’t yet considered. I wrote Just Kids from the perspective of someone who is bitter about the fact that humans have lost touch with each other. Kiruna-Lind, however, came at it from the angle of someone who positively reflects on their nostalgic thoughts.”. [sic]  
 The result is a perfectly balanced duet of innocent nostalgia of childhood and sentimental concern for modern-day society.
