After spending several weeks agonising over vocals, lyrics and minute differences in BPM speeds, one of the most formidable names in the South African dance scene, have finally released their new single.
GoodLuck having just returned from an intensive European touring schedule, are ready to set the live music scene alight with a new single that sounds like it was simply made for Summer.
AWThe Storm is an enthusiastic fusion of African marimbas, paired with London house grooves and Jules, as usual saying exactly what needs to be said, in the most beautiful way.

GoodLuck have once again released an incredible music video that captures the raw emotion and fragility of the song in contrast with a raging storm. The video was conceptualized by the band and once again directed by the inimitable Ryan Kruger.
“The Storm caught us all by surprise… just before the release of Creatures of the Night, we hosted private listening sessions around South Africa for our core fans and nearly all of them had The Storm as their favourite song on the album… until then we weren’t considering it as a single because it is a very personal and fragile song and sometimes songs like that need to just remain on an album. So whilst on tour in the UK earlier this year we sat down in a little studio in London and tweaked it just a little bit – taking it to a new place that we think is just perfect for representing how this year has felt for us… the ups and downs have been pretty extreme to say the least and sometimes it takes a big storm to wash away the old and set us up for the next season of awesome.” Said Producer Ben Peters
Catch GoodLuck live this summer across South Africa performing at a multitude of awesome events including an opening for The Petshop Boys in Durban at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
The Storm is now available on iTunes.
