In what is now an annual tradition, we’re playing catch up during this final week of the year. If this post seems outdated, that’s because it is. Happy Holidays!

Die Antwoord

Die Antwoord played a NYC show at Gramercy Theatre at the end of October. A second set of pictures from that pre-Halloween show occupies this post, and they continue below…

Die Antwoord

Die Antwoord performs music which incorporates many Zef elements and references. Zef is a South African slang term that describes a unique South African style which is modern and trashy and also includes out-of-date, discarded cultural and style elements. Both Ninja and Yolandi have offered definitions of zef. Yolandi was quoted as saying, “It’s associated with people who soup their cars up and rock gold and shit. Zef is, you’re poor but you’re fancy. You’re poor but you’re sexy, you’ve got style.” Their lyrics are performed in both Afrikaans and English.

In an interview with Exclaim! magazine, the group revealed they have a five album plan. According to Ninja, “We’ll be dropping films between each of the albums, feature films… We have one we’re working on for next year called The Answer. It’s like the story of how Die Antwoord started. But that’s like, our power, and where our energy is at right now”[12] In another interview with Mother Jones magazine, the group mentioned that they already had most of the musical hooks written for a second album, tentatively titled Tension.

They are currently filming a short film for the song “Wat Kyk Jy?” with American filmmaker Harmony Korine. [Wikipedia]
