Cape Town’s favourite alternative rock sons, Southern Wild, will premiere their new song, “The Art of Feeling Nothing” this Saturday on Sofar Sounds’ YouTube channel as part of a performance the band did a while back.
“The Art of Feeling Nothing” will form part of Southern Wild’s highly-anticipated second full-length release – an album that emphasises Southern Wild’s energy and authenticity.
“We’ve been sitting on this one for a while, having recorded the Sofar session last year. So, to release a version of it now is a relief, but also maybe perfect in terms of timing? This particular session is a lot more toned down, but it was lovely having the Kites girls and FACE back us up on the harmonies to fill the void left by the lack of distortion,” recounts Dave van Vuuren on the beginnings to what went on to become the title-track to an album the trio hadn’t even written yet at the time.
