Desmond & The Tutus
Desmond & The Tutus have been scarecrowing across the world’s stages with their unique,
some might call it niche, brand of Indie-Rock for just on ten years. But they’re far from niche. In fact, they’re musical shapeshifters.
The hit single “Pretoria Girls” reached number one on 5FM’s Top 40 chart and the album “Enjoy Yourself” picked up the South African Music Award (SAMA) for Best Rock Album in 2016.
While the band has enjoyed international success, their new album ”Enjoy Yourself” is a collection of indie-rock anthems, pretty love songs and pulsing disco hits.
“It’s a constantly evolving tapestry of culture, emotion and melody”. That’s how Native Young frontman, Yannick, describes the six-piece collective’s music.
The music itself is focused on melodic emotional storytelling, raw African rhythm and the fusion of electronic and acoustic instruments – a combination which has carved out a space that’s completely its own in the musical landscape, both locally and abroad, for this cultural barrier-blurring collective.
In 2016, the collective tackled the music scene head-on, and travelled to faraway cities like Berlin to perform. That same year saw the release of Native Young’s first mini album, which subsequently won a South African Music Award for Best Alternative Album in 2017.
