The Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts presents a live performance by award-winning South African indie-rock band The Parlotones.
Formed in 1998, the group consists of Kahn Morbee (vocals and rhythm guitar), Paul Hodgson (lead guitar), Glenn Hodgson (bass guitar, keyboards and backing vocals) and Neil Pauw (drums and percussion). The Parlotones’ early sound was rooted in brit-rock, but eventually grew to incorporate a wider spectrum of musical genres. Their lyrics focus on personal themes, of love and everyday life, paired with catchy melodies that engage their audience.
“Indeed, there was something magically ironic about this song being performed in the pelting rain.” Read Farah Barry’s review of The Parlotones.
