Hello Sweet World

I’ve shared lots of SA music on this blog before. Not just rubbish stuff because it’s fun to ridicule, but some rather decent things as well – Ashtray Electric and Isochronous spring immediately to mind.

Right now, I just can’t get enough of this track from local lads Gangs of Ballet:

Many are comparing this track to Coldplay and Audioslave and I can kind of see where they’re coming from, but that piano is so very Placebo to me.

But we should stop comparing them to other musicians, because they’re their own band and that’s their own sound.

And a damn good sound it is too. Fine work.
