Johnny Cradle inhabits a world we all somehow relate to and could never find completely alien. From drunken abandon to critical self-scrutiny, the themes all hold something anyone can touch on; something we have all felt or held dear.
Songs are crafted in an almost conversational manner, speaking strongly to the three separate personalities within the band that tessellate to form the band’s own personality.
With Tebogo J Mosane on drums, Lazola Ndamase on turntables and Sakumzi Qumana on synthesizer, keyboards and vocals, the band’s approach of three distinct contributions manifesting as one truly unique and articulate idea has resulted in a body of work both extensive and exquisitely realised. The songs are individually crafted and articulated concepts unified by an aesthetic typified by a kind of heady elegance that pulls you in and persuades you to join the dance.
