|The story of BLK JKS reads like a veritable rock’n’roll legend. For a couple of years around the end of the 00’s, the enigmatic South African rock quartet was the darling of the underground scene. Apparently “discovered” by Diplo in SA, they went on to meet and befriend everyone from The Mars Volta to TV On The Radio, two bands they were often compared to. They jammed with The Roots, snapped pics Pharrell Williams and hung out with Lou Reed at the SXSW festival in Texas. They played double bills with Squarepusher at South Bank (UK) and Femi Kuti at the fabled Irving Plaza NYC. Recording an EP aptly named “Mystery” by chance at Jimi Hendrix’s iconic Electric Lady Studios.
The band return with their first full-length album in over 10 years, out through We Are Busy Bodies in North America on May 21, 2021.
