Shortstraw-5-Christelle-Duvenhage

If you tune into Tuks fm right now, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll here these guys jamming their thrash folk tunes. This five-piece, Joburg native band is making waves with their new album “Good Morning, Sunshine”, and you’ll be very sorry if you miss them.

Jeremy Loops is “a modern day one-man folk band”, and rocks a “loopdaloop” pedal, like very few people can. His uniquely fun sound and original talent, make him an act you’ll definitely want to check out.

Here’s his video for “Power”

This indie/alternative rock, four-piece band from Atlanta, Georgia in the US, has put out three brilliant studio albums so far, and they’re nowhere near done. Their powerful and almost haunting sound, will leave you feeling like you’ve just heard something amazing.

Watch their video for “Simple Math”
