New Holland live (Mark Reitz)

Let’s cut right to the chase, shall we. My name is Luca Vincenzo and I live in South Africa. As well as being a radio DJ, I am also a journalist and I comment on the youthful South African music here. I made contact with Phil, master and commander of TGTF, and we have now embarked on a music sharing relationship. I bring to you a collection of bands from South Africa that come highly recommended…

And, cut.

New Holland is an exceptional band hailing from South Africa, and their tale is one of passion, dedication and talent. In the 14 months that the band has been together, they have thrice toured the country and quickly become a band reknowned for highly energetic and professional live shows.

Their debut album 01 was released in September last year much and was positively received by fiercely dedicated fans and critics alike. The album has it all: agressively guitar heavy tracks like the opener ‘Uhuru’ and ‘Inside Out’ display a darker side to the band, while the dancer inside you begs to come out and play on tracks like ‘Dire Eyes’, ‘Cold Dagger’ and the single ‘Shine’. Before you think it is all child’s play, ‘The Great Divide’ or ‘The Only Thing You Own’ let you realise that there is lot on the mind of today’s youth.

Currently, New Holland are working on new material for their second release, allowing the hype-machine to do some work after previewing snippets of new material at recent gigs.

With all intentions of touring internationally, New Holland could be at gig near you before you know it. You’ll soon realise that Kevin Pietersen is not the only decent thing to come out of South Africa…

Purchase 01 online, visit New Holland’s site or Facebook page.
