Deezer Live Sessions offer fans the opportunity to see a rare acoustic performance by artists who present new arrangements never before seen or heard and so for this reason, Southern Wild was filmed in a small, intimate location with a unique setup.

All three videos were shot at The House of Machines in Cape Town and directed by renowned SA filmmaker Riordan Allen, the brainchild behind Bob Loves Dylanand form part of a series of one-shot takeaway shows that feature emerging local and international artists.

About the track, vocalist David Van Vuuren commented, “We came up with In a Classic Horror a few days before we arrived at Popsicle Studios to record the record. We actually ended up leaving it for last and finished writing the song together in studio. A very special song to us, lyrically and musically. It’s our newest old song and the song writing approach on this track is definitely a sign of things to come.”

A 3-track live EP has also been released which will be available exclusively on Deezer, it’s also the first Deezer Live Session EP to be released in South Africa. Featured tracks on the EP include “Darkness at My Heels”, “In A Classic Horror” and “Time Eraser”.
