BLK JKS - Summertime :: Video


BLK JKS [Linda Buthelezi (lead vocals), Mpumi Mcata (guitar), Molefi Makananise (bass) and Tshepang Ramoba (drums)] is a South African rock group who've been making music since 2000. Giving us music rife with rock guitars, Zulu drums, and ethereal sounds; the Johannesburg & Soweto natives also educate us with cultural issues from politics to the environment to teenage pregnancy.
They rose above the radar a couple years ago when they released the Mystery EP [which was remastered and released in March 09] igniting DJ's and followers of the likes of Fela Kuti, Mulatu Astatke, and TV On The Radio. Their debut album After Robots was released in September to stellar reviews within the blogosphere & noteworthy magazines [Fader & Rolling Stone]. They have been on 2008 & 2009's "what's hot" and "the one to watch" lists and they don't plan on losing steam anytime soon.
