The Suitcase Hearts

June 6, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm



The Suitcase Hearts

Although new on the SA music block, The Suitcase Hearts are by no means virgins to the stage. Based in Cape Town, these home-grown, traveling heartbreakers have been around the block a few times, albeit in different forms.

Moonlighting from bands as famous as: Freshlyground, Moodphase 5ive, Kolo Novo Movie Band, Adamu, The Honeymoon Suites, Benguela, Bone Key and The Dales, when gathered together the line-up consists of: Ilse Lotz – lead vocalist, Kyla-Rose Smith– violin, vocals, eye & ear candy. “Mean” Dean Pienaar -bass. Doug Armstrong – keys, trumpet and gadgets. Simon Annett – drums . Brydon Bolton –electric guitar. Bood Carver – acoustic guitar.

The sound is best described as country dub, although some of it is pure vintage country, blues, progressive ambient swamp, cyber square dance, wonky tonk & psychedelic farmhouse. Prepare to hear some of the saddest, maddest & baddest originals & covers ever played.

“Some while ago, a friend whose taste in music I deeply respect told me about The Suitcase Hearts. Already intrigued by their name & fuelled by a desire to hear their music, I chose to plan my trip to Noordhoek around the night they were playing… I fell in love with them during the first song.” – Bianca Coleman, journalist. Excerpted from Weekend Argus Life review on the 22 November 2014
