In this week's SA Artist Spotlight, we're featuring The Smoochies:

They’re young. They’re great. They’re talented. And they’re local.

Pretoria-based Tyran, Chris and Chad make up the indie band, The Smoochies. With musical influences like Imagine Dragons, The Plastics, Arcitc Monkeys and The Hives and the promise “to get their crowds jiving their booties,” we understand why the trio are steadily rising in the local music scene. They’re bit like the Lumineers and Beatenberg had a baby. Their quirky indie/pop/funk/afro beat sound never fault or tires. And their track ‘Wiki Wiki Wizer’ is the perfect soundtrack to any sunset drive along the coast.

They’ve been added to numerous radio stations’ music charts – we hope to see them on the #Top30Hitlist very soon!
