Sons of Settlers

Sons of Settlers

Indie-Folk from Cape Town, South Africa/ Berlin, Germany

Sons of Settlers started out as a four-piece band from South Africa; they travelled to Germany for the first time in the summer of 2014, where their unique, high-energy melodic folk sound secured them a following wherever they went.
What can you expect from a live Sons of Settlers performance in 2017? The group loves performing as a duo, but don’t expect a smaller sound! There is a pumping kick-drum and percussion, courtesy of the busy feet of the two performers. There will be tasty and cheeky dual guitar riffs bouncing off a beating drum, on top of which you will find their signature soaring harmonious double vocals. To call them a folk duo would be selling them short; while they combine acoustic and electric guitars, bouncing beats, and melodic vocals in a wholly positive and organic sound, there are hints of all kinds of influences, from the playful South African kwaito sound to the more techno-inspired repetition that Berlin is famous for. Regardless of your preference, you are going to be in for a good time! For bigger shows and festival bookings the duo employs the services of legendary drummer Frank Mertens, of Adolar fame, to perform as a trio. With this beautiful man behind the drums everything gets a little louder, a little dirtier, and a little cheekier. Both versions of this outfit are mesmerising and exciting, so be sure not to miss any of it.

Sons of Settlers are not quite many things. They are not quite folk, not quite rock, not quite lyrics-based, and not quite instrument-driven. Like a baby who bears no resemblance to either parent – ‘They’re like themselves’. (PureMzine)
