Music that promises a journey
consisting of many layers.


Southern Wild is a four-piece Rock band from Cape Town, South Africa. The band consists of David van Vuuren (Vocals, Guitar), Julian van Rensburg (Guitar), Alex Smillie (Bass) and Dylan Hunt on Drums.


The idea of Southern wild was born through a dream in early 2015. They have played some prestigious festivals since their inception such as OppiKoppi, Up The Creek and River Republic.


They have just finished the recording of their debut album entitled ‘Lead Role in a Classic Horror’ at Popsicle studios, which is due for release later this month. The album promises a journey consisting of many layers and paths to its listener, much like a wafer biscuit car on an eight lane highway. Every song within their set provides something unique, with each piece of music standing alone.


When's the last time
you felt real for a minute


Heavily focused on feel & progression, this band gives absolutely everything each time they hit the stage. This same energy has been translated onto their debut album.

They have been well documented by some of SA’s most relevant music bloggers and are in the planning stages of their national tour to promote the release of ‘Lead Role in a Classic Horror’.

The album will be available to stream exclusively through Deezer on the 12th of March 2017. Pre-orders will also be available.
