7 MINUTE SESSIONS

#7MinSessions

7 Min Sessions ” are impromptu, mini performances which are often one or two songs long. The duration of which, normally totals somewhere around 7mins as an average song length is between 3 – 4mins long. Usually performed in unusual settings, these unplugged performances normally take place in a pop-up format. All over the world, the various curators of beautiful video content interpret the” Take Away Show ” concept in their own style. This series of videos, that we will be releasing will feature handpicked local and international artists performing their favourite original songs in some of the most unique settings, spaces and places. Sometimes to a live audience, an impromptu audience or no audience at all, we give the artist the freedom to choose which he or she would prefer. Often, a live audience adds that special X factor to the performance that elicits and even more authentic delivery from the artist.

Gangs of Ballet

” High & Dry ” by Radiohead

This next instalment of our #7MinSession series we worked with the award winning alternative band Gangs of Ballet. The trio or in this special case, a duo are five-time Sama-nominated and MTV Mama Award-winning band from Durban. This cover of Radiohead’s “High & Dry” was put together by the two brothers Brad & Josh Klynsmtih, to perform as an acoustic interlude between their highly electric set. It soon became one of their signature show additions – and if you click play you will see why.
