Die Antwoord: Banana Brain
on 22 July 2016
The crazy kids are back! South Africa's Die Antwoord (made up of alter-egos Ninja and Yo-landi Visser, plus mysterious producers) release their latest middle finger to the pop world. "Banana Brain" juxtaposes hardcore techno rhythms with Visser's hair-raising whisper chants, leaving you feeling anything but lukewarm. Their fourth album Mount Ninji and da Nice Time Kid, featuring Jack Black, Dita Von Teese and more, is set for release in September 2016, and Die Antwoord describes how it changed over the course of two years: "another layer exploded out of our dark wild juicy core like a giant supernatural mega aura and suddenly our album was so epic and sometimes vulnerable and sometimes sweet and romantic and so brave and full of mystery and win."
