DIE HEUWELS FANTASTIES & SPOEGWOLF / EGGO

On Die Heuwels Fantasties’ eighth studio album, ‘Volume’, we see how this constantly evolving group exerts their nineties influences in the current digital streaming era. “Volume”, which was released on Friday 22 of October, boasts an eclectic mix of acoustic hits, pop-punk, synth ballads and a bit of electro-folk for exceptional audio umami.

Hunter Kennedy says he is very excited about the release of the new album: “This is our third one since the pestilence and I think it has counted in our favour to stay well oiled. Pierre did a great job of writing ‘EGGO’ and the collaboration with Spoegwolf took it to the next level, of course. I also really like the energy of ‘Work For Life’. We mined it where Blink-182 buried the roots. I would say the album as a whole is a combination of the maturity of ‘Reimagine’ and the urgency of ‘2021’. ‘Volume II’ is also almost finished. We have a lot of new music to share! ”

Fred den Hartog adds: “With ‘Volume’ we approached the saxophone, guitar, piano, percussion and voices in a different way. We took it all in stride to finally arrive at a place that is fresh, unique and still ‘Hills’, if that makes sense. I hope everyone hears and feels us by listening to these few songs. ”

The first single from the new album ‘EGGO’ is a scant ballad for uncertain times. The subtle piano and cello create breathing space for Pierre (Die Heuwels Fantasties) and Danie (Spoegwolf) to motivate their separate vulnerabilities. The song’s crescendo is a cathartic gathering of two generations of alternative Afrikaners.
