Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys are an art pop ambient noise band based in Berlin.
The audience can expect a captivating live show that draws you in and leaves you dreaming of it for days to come.
While on stage, she takes her time, leaving the audience aching for the next word from her lips, and makes eye contact with the people in the crowd as if her music was solely dedicated to you individually. – NBHAP Writers
At the centre was Kruger herself, on the small stage revealing the possibilities available to an artist who surrenders control, who sets out to play but who also offers up a calibrated, startlingly direct performance full of gestures that, like a sculptor, shape the audience’s response. She lays bare by stripping away – Diane Coetzer, for the Daily Maverick
Wombed is an experimental music project led by Berlin-based, Cape Town-born musician, André Leo (formerly of dream noise duo, Medicine Boy).
Birthed in the murky waters of 2020, the debut EP, Still Nothing, is described by Leo as ‘cough syrup blues’ and is a merger of his love for acoustic roots music and washed-out, unsettling ambiance.
2021’s Skinning Music is a blurry sound collage of dictaphones, Mellotrons, tube amps, guitars and tape hiss.
These two self-produced EPs mark the closing of the first cycle of Wombed with a forthcoming record in the final stages of production, drawing more on Leo’s adoring and inquisitive relationship with discordant, noisy rock ‘n roll music
For their show debut performances in South Africa, the band (with Francis Broek on drums and Adam Hill on bass) will focus on the newer, unreleased material while throwing in a few reworkings of older material.
