Goldfish are a popular electronica and dance group hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, consisting of Dominic Peters and David Poole. They create dance music containing elements of jazz and African music, combining live instruments like double bass, saxophones, keyboards, flute, and vocals with samplers, effects and synths. I first heard goldfish playing live on a Sunday afternoon concert down in Stellenbosch, South Africa and have been hooked ever since.
Those days when you just want to sit back and relax after coming back from work but don't know how to un-wind, Goldfish is the perfect solution for it. You throw the cd on, chill and get ready to go out later that night to the club. To your pleasant suprise when you reach the club, you hear goldfish booming over the speakers and everyone jamming the night away to their music. The diversity and range of goldfish is what makes them arguably the most interesting and loved band in South Africa and soon to be the rest of the world. A few select songs I chose to write a bit more about:
1. The Real Deal: The first song off the cd ses the tone for the rest of the album by incorporting the very catchy African influences to the beats. The song is more mellow compared to the rest of the album but it really intices you to carry on listening. The highlight to the song is the African vocals that are used and the imagery created...
5. All Night: This track compliments the one mentioned about due to its up-tempo beat and the vibe it gives off. There is not much else to say about this song other than it will get the party off to a good start(or atleast a few people tapping their feet)
7. Wait A Minute: A track that makes my top 3 off this album, not because of the quality of the music but rather the sense of interaction between the listener and the band. it begins with a man talking over what seems to be a speaker phone or PA before busting into the song. This song is the complete package and is always exciting to listen to personally, 63 plays later.
9.1/10 WATCH OUT FOR THE FISH, THEY WILL GET YOU TOO!
