Spoegwolf are one of the few groups who rose from strength to strength in 2019 and they ended off the year with a performance-rooted video for “Seile”, one of their most vibrant releases to-date.
Off their upcoming album See, set to drop in early February (these guys tend to drop an album a year these days) the song tracks a percussive, fine-tuned line this time around.
Spoegwolf cut no corners, boldly straddling the line between anthemic rock and honed indie-pop verse. It’s unexpectedly finely tempered – awash in subtle organic percussion and choruses which drop with implosive restraint.
The video is a collection of simple hand-held clips slapped together with the sort of DIY finesse. It’s nothing to write home about really – just a couple of colourful frames chronicling everything from a heaving Kirstenbosch gig, to some kick-back band shenanigans – but it captures a whole lot of who they are as a group and it’s just about as wholesome and feel-good as it gets.
