KONGOS - Western Fog

weChameleon's aficionados may remember my post about South African alternative rockers KONGOS at the beginning of the year. The post presented 1929: Part 1, the first album of a trilogy whose second chapter is anticipated today by the release of the new single Western Fog.

With drums and bass that feel straight out of The Breakfast Club, and a guitar/vocal combo that emits refreshing, 90's alternative air, Western Fog bridges two decades together in three and a half minutes.

Lyricwise, the new single focuses on internal conflict. "Western Fog is about the unforgiving heaviness we feel at certain times in our lives," writer Dylan Kongos explains. "Learning how to truly love and sharing that with someone in need, can lift us out of the mire."

Western Fog is now available worldwide on all digital platforms (click on the image).

1929: Part 2 is set to be released on October 1, 2019. On the same day, the band will kick off their fall tour: check the dates on the band's website.

Also noteworthy is the fact that the band launched an 8-part documentary series, Bus Call - Life On Tour, which follows their story and gives a compelling and realistic window into life on tour. And, Bus Call is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video! Go check it out.
