We’re hosting tonight the fourth episode of a party/documentary series called Aperture.

Update: Aperture is featured in between10and5‘s Young South Africa series, link here.

News on that when it’s out.

Our friend Sebastian Borckenhagen has produced their album art and a music video.

Our collective glowLDB has produced a live video for the band too…
