Springbok Nude Girls are back!! Today sees the release of “Emerging Submarines”, the immense new single and video taken from their anticipated new album Partypocalypse (which will be released on the 3rd of September 2021 via Mongrel Records).
Opening with a riff that could only be Theo Crous, the new single is pure SNG magic and showcases why they are hailed as South Africa’s premier hard rock band.
Drummer Francious Kruger comments on the origin of “Emerging Submarines”
“Not sure how this one started. I Just remember that I struggled with it until I started playing the ‘goema shuffle’ vibe. Then when Theo added the soaring guitar, the song just went next level.”
Springbok Nude Girls Lead Vocalist Arno Carstens also shares his thoughts about the new track
“There always one track on an album for me that stands above the rest. On Afterlife Satisfaction it was Grrr, Peace Breaker – Gang Gang and on this album its Emerging Submarines.”
The video which was shot, directed, and edited by renowned artist and sculptor Lionel Smit on location at his studio is a visual explosion which matches the intensity and mood of the song perfectly.
“Spending a day in Lionel Smit’s amazing studio was exciting. We played through the songs a few times and they quickly got the shots they wanted. Always a pleasure working with Lionel and his team.” Say Francious. Arno adds, “I think the video gives insight into how it feels to perform the song very successfully.” Guitarist Theo says with a smile, “Always lekker to be with Lionel Smit. Amaze balls!!”
Check out the video for “Emerging Submarines” below:
“Emerging Submarines” is definitely one of most psychedelic and rocking tracks that have come out of South Africa (and possibly the world) in 2021. The track transported me back to the early days of the Springbok Nude Girls. I’m curious to find out what the rest of their new album is going to sound like.
