Band of the Moment: Kongos

I’ve been listening a lot to a South African/London band called The Kongos. Their mix of big drums, chants, and melodies make for a wonderful album. You know what they sound like? A mix between One Republic, Bastille, Coldplay, Boxer Rebellion, and maaaaybe a little of Kings of Leon. I know that’s quite the cosmic slop isn’t it? They have enough rock n’ rhythm songs to get the party started…or break stuff. I can hear this band on a soundtrack to a movie in an instant – OR at a keg party. And the best part about them is that the band is made up of brothers. Four brothers. The drums are incredible. You can definitely detect the world music influence in their music. Trust me. These guys are the tits. Check them out when you get a chance. Then thank me later.
