We previously reported on South African Rock Super Group Blood Brothers once again banding together in support of the Vrede Foundation.
The band have now released a music video to accompany their new song “Ek Sweer Op My Lewe”.
The video was shot at Wolf Media Studios in Cape Town. The heartfelt song in Afrikaans, English and Xhosa, titled Ek sweer op my lewe (I swear on my life), was released to garner support for the Vrede Foundation.
The track was written, recorded and mixed by Nicolai Roos and George van der Spuy (Taxi Violence & Crawling King Snake) at Kill City Blues with additional lyrics by Zolani Mahola of Freshlyground.
“We gave the Blood Brothers a basic template which evolved with each band member’s contribution. Each member put their own feel and stamp on the parts they recorded,” says van der Spuy. “Too many people have lost friends and family to cancer so the song is mainly about missing those people and how if you had one more chance to see them, you would tell them you love them and hold them close to you one more time,” van der Spuy explains the story behind the song.
