feature: young rockers from johannesburg form punk band, tciyf

September 21, 2016

Johannesburg is brewing with the types of protest and energy that makes for a hotbed for alternative Black expression. TCIYF is a product of Soweto, the storied township in Joburg, and their music is chock-full of passion and grit of their surroundings. The band came together out of the Skate Society Soweto fam, a common accompaniment to the sounds and style of the punk aesthetic. Primarily inspired by metal bands like Black Sabbath and Slayer, the sounds are youthful and songs simple yet cathartic. Watch and listen to the rawness of TCIYF below.
