Gravity Wins Again
Gravity Wins Again
A band that isn't shy to hit the road, GWA have undertaken many tours all over South Africa since 2006, visiting most of the nine provinces the country holds, sharing the stage with some of SA's biggest name rock bands along the way. Shows with Prime Circle, The Finkelstiens, Evolver One, Harris Tweed (now known as Dear Reader), Cassette, Straatligkinders, Versus The Wolf, Dance, You're On Fire, Crossingpoint and Tonight We Die have not only blossomed into friendships, but also a chance for the band to showcase themselves to fans of different genres (folk, hardcore and even metal) that may not have seen them play before. Interestingly enough, it's the live stage where this trio really hit their stride. Whereas earlier shows were more subdued, experience now shows a band fully comfortable in their own skin under the bright lights of both big and small stages, successfully involving audiences in a way that not many bands can in the local scene. Their scorching live show is anchored by an energetic performance mixed with witty banter between the band members that would put many stand-up comics to shame. "When we play live, we are very conscious of making sure the audience is entertained", explains Gareth Allison.
"If we just played the songs for an hour without engaging the crowd and making them dance as well as laugh, then they may as well just go home and listen to the CD. Live shows are all about the energy and the interplay between us and the people who have paid good money to see us perform." With their single "Bail Me Out burning up campus stations and satellite TV channels and a new EP (and singles) to come, the future is looking brighter than ever for these three young men from the Southern tip of Africa. Make sure you get in on the ground floor while you still can. Read more on Last.fm.
