If you thought Durban’s curry was hot, forget it, in 2012 they gave us something even hotter – Gangs of Ballet. Much can be said about this four-piece outfit. The way they’ve done everything just right – staying in the garage for almost two years, refining and perfecting their sound before hitting the gigging circuit and then blowing us away with a sound so fresh and innovative that they’ve already enjoyed top spot on the 5FM Top 40 and received international recognition for their work. Yip, their No 1 track, Hello Sweet World is the theme track of VH1’s Rehab With Dr Drew.
The progress that they’ve made in establishing themselves as one of SA’s most popular up-and-coming bands is phenomenal really. Let’s face it, who knew who Gangs of Ballet was this time last year? Yet these artists have made a name for themselves with little more than a five-track EP and a commendable live act. The EP is a showcase of immense talent and a promise of a band capable of making their way to the top and staying there. They’ve already shared the stage with Switchfoot and toured the country with Civil Twilight on their Holy Weather SA Tour – and that was just 2012.
So what does 2013 have in store for these guys? Check out their EPK below.
