Head in the Sand is the new track from Johannesburg’s Alternative Electro Rock band Go the Rodeo. The band have released their debut Electro Music album LEKKER CHILLED in July 2019. The Music Video features raw behinds the scenes footage from their recent Cape Town tour in South Africa.
The song is classic Go the Rodeo. Alternative Electro Music with swirling synths, electro beats and groovy bass lines. But lyrically things are a little different this time. “Head in the Sand was a song that came together effortlessly, and that set the tone for what we wanted to achieve with the track and video overall.” explains Vocalist Corné van Niekerk. “Lyrically it’s about redeeming yourself, opening your eyes to reality, and drawing the line when it comes to being the nice guy.”
“We wanted to shoot something fun, but we didn’t want to plan anything specific.” comments Bassist Robert Mitchley. “The whole point was to show our personalities, so we just compiled footage of our Cape Town tour, and other cellphone videos of us messing around and being ourselves.”
Here is a little background information about this South African Alternative Electro Music trinity. Corné and Robert formed as a duo after having done various music projects together. In early 2017, Craig Atkinson, drummer for the electronic/post-hardcore band, Bombs and Issues, joined them. They released their debut single “Sea Dog” 2017, and went on to release multiple other singles in quick succession.
