Here's what they look like.
Photos from here and here.
As their website says, "For those who don't know yet, Die Antwoord are a futuristic rap-rave crew from South Africa who represent a fresh new style called Zef."
I love them and have been lucky enough to see them in concert in Vancouver, their first time in Canada. It was fucking awesome. Check this song out.
And because I love them so much, and they're kind of underdogs...here's another song. NSFW!
This song actually talks about the story of"evil boy"...it's not just a bunch of dick jokes, no matter how the video looks. Evil boy is from a Cape Town ghetto, and can't go back because he isn't circumcised.Watch this video first actually, Ninja explains it better than I could, and it's in his cool accent.
And here's the song that's gotten me through some boring walks home from the bus stop. (see if you catch the District 9 reference in the video) Even if you're not interested in the music, give the video a play. The "evil boy" story is interesting.
Die Antwoord might come off as kind of silly and a sort of novelty band at first, but I think you should give them a chance. They're actually from a real ghetto, they worked their way up from nothing, Ninja is like the fastest rapper I've ever heard in my life, and Yo-Landi is...something I've never seen before. I seriously love them!
