Watch: Hunter Kennedy Talks To Zybrandt About His Music In A New World

By / Off The Press / Tuesday, 07 September 2021 10:56

Zybrandt is currently one of the most exciting new solo artists on the South African music scene. With his deep, comforting voice, Zybrandt gained instant recognition in February 2021 with the release of his debut Afrikaans single 'Anders'. The track was picked up by major South African radio stations and has had more than 16 million impacts on local radio up to date. The current single Kamoefleer is also popular among old and new fans. The fantastical video for 'Kamoefleer' was created by Jeremy Farber of For Tomorrow Studios. It took four months to make and consists of 19 scenes, various wardrobe changes and more than 150 illustrations.

Zybrandt is currently working on an EP release for October 2021. He says that music usually starts as an emotion for him. “The lyrics then start to flow and when I pen it down, I keep in mind that I would like anyone who listens to the song to be able to also recognize their own story in it.”

Hunter Kennedy from Die Heuwels Fantasties chatted to Zybrandt in a video recording that is now available on Youtube. Kennedy says that he was instantly impressed with Zybrandt`s song-writing skills and he believes it to be a valuable contribution to Afrikaans poetry. Kennedy says: “Zybrandt`s music is honest and complex and reminds of the golden era of the Afrikaans ‘musiek en liriek’ – with a couple of punches in the dark for context.” One of Kennedy`s favourite Zybrandt tunes is “Renoster in `n Superspar”, a song that was released in December 2020 via social media and online platforms. Tune in to their conversation to hear their discussion about this track, among other interesting facts and musings. 

Zybrandt at Die Boer, Durbanville, 20 November:

Great news for Zybrandt fans in Cape Town: he will be performing at Die Boer in Durbanville on 20 November 2021.

Hierdie jaar het ek myself weer ontdek / Hergebore in `n ongemaklike stil, nuwe plek / Nou's dit   uiteindelik tyd om die bed op te maak. / Die deure te sluit en die wêreld in te gaan. / Ek wil my ego breek, ek wil skree en wil fluister / Vir elke siel wat reg is om te luister.” – Zybrandt.
