The quintessential South African band, Zebra, released their brand new song, ‘Taxi Love’ on Saturday 19 September 2020 at Aandklas Pretoria.

This was a big night for the band as it was their first live performance at Aandklas Pretoria since Lockdown started in March. The band also introduced a new member, Justin Swartz, or better known as: Nacho Steez.

Nacho is a rap artist. He brings a new element to the band and complements their style and take on indie music/comedic Rock. He is a great addition to the band and we all look forward to the music that they will create going forward.

Their performance on Saturday was everything and more that you can expect from the band. They kept the audience captivated and intrigued by the stories they weaved in between songs.

Taxi Love was an absolute hit on Saturday. The crowd enjoyed the song so much that its probably still stuck in their head. The song is quite self-explanatory but Zebra put their own spin to Taxi Love. They say, “It’s a love story like no other”.

The song was brilliantly constructed and showcases each member’s talent. The song was written and recorded during lockdown at Gemini AD Studios.

Their performance at Aandklas was probably the first live show for many fans and they did a fantastic job welcoming Level 1 of lockdown.

Founder of Quintessential ZA, Quintus Potgieter, said ‘Taxi Love’ was a great song that could lift the national spirit while dealing with the side effects of the doom and gloom of the pandemic. “The song is so proudly Pretoria, it’s awesome. It is exactly what we needed to give us an extra boost for the last couple months of 2020,” he added. QZA gave the track their stamp of approval, certifying ‘Taxi Love’ quintessentially South African.

I can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeve for Park Acoustics and the Rockdown Festival.
