So do you remember the film Searching For Sugarman, the story about finding Rodriguez?

A few determined fans from South Africa go on a mission to make contact with the artist many believed had committed suicide after releasing his iconic debut album “Cold Fact” Unbeknown to Rodriquez, his albums had become hugely successful in South Africa and sales of his records had outnumbered those of Elvis Presley’s, anyway, these fans made a documentary about finding him and he ends up having an unexpected revival of his music career because of it. If you haven’t seen the film, check it out, it’s called Searching For Sugarman. It’s probably going to make you cry.

Stephen “Sugar” Segerman (one of the guys that found Rodriguez) owns a famous record store in Cape Town called Mabu Vinyl. We called him up and said we’d love to shoot a few stripped down songs in the store, Stephen kindly obliged by giving us more than we bargained for and offered to let us shoot the videos in his basement, let’s just say there was more limited edition vinyl down there to make any collector drool for years!

So there we were, playing a few songs in the Mabu Vinyl Basement. What a cool experience to play in amongst all that old vinyl, it even smelled great!

Thanks Sugar for letting us come and hang out and special thanks to Patrick Craig from Studio 7 for making it all happen.  We hope you enjoy the song, it’s got a James Bond thing going on. Anyway, please drop us an email, leave a comment on the video, we’d really love to hear from you.

We’re launching something awesome!

We’re launching something awesome, but before we get to that, you may have noticed we’ve been really quiet for a few months with our move from Cape Town to St.Francis Bay and then Maddy, our beautiful little boy, arriving. Things have been pretty hectic and making music, especially in SA is tough at the best of times, but here’s the good news. We’ve discovered something awesome via our good friend Nate Maingard.

ENTER: PATREON

We’ve never been this excited about making music, watch the video above and you’ll see why! We are sharing it with you before the official launch because we’d love to get your feedback. Does this speak of who we are? Does the message come across clearly? How do you find the rewards? Please let us know what you think, we’d really love to hear from you on this.

Once we’ve gathered all the feedback and made any necessary changes, we’ll hit the launch button! In the meantime, if you’d like to be one of our first patrons, take a look here or click the “learn more”  button at the bottom of the mail.  We are so excited, this platform has given us a reason to push through and we’d love to keep sharing our story with you.

We’re almost back!

We’ve been flying under the radar but hey, that’s what you do when you have a new born baby! Yip you heard that, Maddox Bentley Peens has been born a healthy baby boy. The cool thing is we’ve had a really good break and you know what they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder, well we are missing you all so much, we have serious withdrawals from not being on stage, we need it big time, the past few months have been great, we’ve been writing new songs, working on new video concepts and generally getting the creative juices going again. We are super excited about our new Patreon page. Indie music is just so well suited to the platform and we can’t wait to see where it all takes us. Scroll down and click on the link if you’d like to know more. It’s pretty cool and we’re offering some rad rewards.

Anyway, drop us a line, we’d love to hear from you.

Can’t wait to catch up at a show
