About the bands!

– Jackal and the Wind: https://www.facebook.com/JackalAndTheWind/ 
Jackal and the Wind is an independent band from Stellenbosch, South Africa. The band has been gaining steady acclaim since its inception in 2013. Their signature track, ‘The Ukulele Song’ put them on the map when it gained a cult following among the student demographic with 270 000+ impressions on SoundCloud and top honours on the Digital Forest Live Sessions in the same year.
The band’s whimsical name is reminiscent of the yearning of the jackal and the intangible emotion of a howling wind, and pays homage to their wish to whisk their listeners away to a world without boundaries by means of their emotive harmonies.
 
There are four of us. One sings and complains. One shreds harder than a cheese grater. Another one just bangs things. There’s one more but he has two less strings than the other guys. Except for the guy who bangs things. He doesn’t use any strings. Four piece Cape Town-based indie rock outfit.
Well Done Sun is a lively experience – a cross-pollination of genres in the 21st century.
Starting as an acoustic duo hailing from Port Elizabeth, front man Hanno took Well Done Sun through a number of different phases and concepts, together with various band members. Keegan Watkins, the other half of the initial duo, was a key member in developing and creating the concept, energy and style of the band.

In 2015, Brett Atkinson came on board playing an integral role as the band’s bassist, guitarist, synth-player and co-producer. Together with Hanno and local musicians Tim Edwards and Mel Mwevi, the band recorded their full debut album, We Have Time, at Popsicle Studios in Cape Town. The album will be released later in 2016, preceded by several singles and an EP.

“Inspiration is drawn from our experiences, beliefs and the people around us,” says Hanno, who is also the singer and guitarist of the band. “People are everything.”

Further influences include The Kooks, Bombay Bicycle Club, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tame Impala, Jungle and MGMT.

As the band describes it, their music focuses on a “passive groove”. The sentimental approach to song writing creeps into your soul through all the right places. Styles such as psych rock, funk, folk, reggae and jazz are groovily blurred together in a fusion of sound.

The band is buzzing to bring their unique artistry into a new space with their recent move to the Cape. Keep your ear to the ground to catch one their upcoming gigs around Cape Town.
