Let Go: Bad Peter on escape, a busy music career, and not being a political band

Everybody might not have seen Bad Peter live, but the ones who have describe the band’s spirited performance as lively, compelling, and… well… damn good. They’re one of the busiest bands in the country at the moment, and recently, after signing with David Gresham Records, released their first EP, Let GoFor a five-track EP, Let Go has a surprisingly diverse set of influences and stylistic elements. Yet it maintains a distinct “Bad Peter”-sound. It’s bright, acoustic, sparkling and hair-raising – even sexy at times – while lyrically being both spirited and serious. Bad Peter is an acoustic duo consisting of PG Badenhorst and Alwyn Bekker, and we spoke to them about their career and their debut EP.

Who is OH ROXY? #ThisIsMe

Oh Roxy, the 21-year-old “Retro siren” is David Gresham Records’ newest alternative pop act from Cape Town, and she is releasing her debut single, This Is Me, today.  She is originally from Durban, but moved to Cape Town to pursue her dreams in music, and majored in vocals at COPA (Campus of Performing Arts).

We asked her a few quick questions to get to the bottom of it.
