Native Young is an elusive facet of Cape Town’s music landscape. Yannick Meyer’s alias for his music has spawned a collection of rotating talent that he uses to perform his songs depending on where in the world he finds himself.
The South African live Native Young band has been around for a few years, but have been sparing in the number of live shows that they play, keeping fans hungry for more. The eclectic sound and seamless blend of folk, alternative and traditional South African styles make this music a truly unique offering both locally and abroad.
On the back of winning a 2017 SAMA for Best Alternative Music Album, we were lucky enough to get the live band into studio for a Popsicle Studio Session.
