Allow me to introduce a new band that we’ve discovered here at BestFan, the Kongos. They’re an alternative sounding rock band with heavy and steady back beats and hauntingly good vocal tracks.
The band consists of four guys from South Africa, and they all happen to be brothers. Their names are Jesse, Johnny, Daniel, and Dylan. They came out with a new 12-track album called Lunatic that they signed with Sony Music Canada. I gotta tell you, I like them. They’ve got a very fast paced rhythm and swing to their music. Listening makes you want to get up and dance. I have to compliment the drummer, because while the vocals and guitar notes are good, the drums are what really make them stand out from the other alternative bands I’ve listened to.
Some of my favourite tracks off Lunatic include “I’m Only Joking” and “Come With Me Now.” Those songs are very catchy and energetic. In comparison, their track “I Want To Know” has a very mellow tone to it, with some guitar solo improv, and a melody that reminds me of an island vacation. It sorta takes you away, and is incredibly relaxing to listen to.
One thing that’s really cool about this album, is that there’s no specific theme to it. It has something for everyone. I really enjoy it, and I think everyone who gives Kongos a chance will too. Their album Lunatic is out now, so go give it a listen.
Here’s their video for “Come With Me Now.” Such a good song.
