#songoftheday = DIE ANTWOORD: “BANANA BRAIN” + TOUR DATES

On their last few albums, Die Antwoord were a very gimmicky, almost comedic duo.  As Ninja describes their new video for the single “Banana  Brain, “A young girl sneaks out to a party with an unusual thug rap-raver boy and has the worst / best night of her life.”  Suffice to say it’s a pretty zany video with lots of strange things happening in it.  But Die Antwoord would be nothing if not strange.  That’s what makes them so different.  It’s not just the music that’s different this time.  There are more sung vocals by Yolandi and less rapping by Ninja.  But don’t go worrying about this if you’re a longtime fan because there will surely be tracks on their new album where Ninja is the focus, too.  In any case, they’ve always considered themselves rap/rave music, so it’s not hugely surprising that they’ve basically gone EDM with this.  Huge massive beats that throb and throb will either hook you or make you turn it off pretty quick.  Although by this stage in the game I figure everyone’s already decided whether they’re a fan or a hater.  Me, I’m a fan.  Most of the time.  They’ve put out plenty of songs that were subpar, but the really good ones are on fire.
