There’s an act I’ve noticed feature on pretty much every South African festival this summer and his named is Ex Olympic. Only problem is that I haven’t actually made it to any festivals, so up until now I had no idea what he sounded like. All I knew was that it was Nic Van Reenan’s project.
Who is Nic? Well, I’ll forgive you for not recognizing his name. He’s featured on Indie Shuffle a few times in the past under the moniker Fever Trails, an act with a thoroughly different sound vis a vis Ex Olympic. And that’s good — everyone likes a little evolution every now and then.
He’s got an EP called HANGUPS due on November 18th via the record label 1991, so, y’know… keep your ears peeled.
