There’s something beautiful about fusion bands. From the resplendent cacophony of sounds to the sonic narrative, fusion bands intertwine cultural dissonance to create their own brand of “eclectic”. Hailing from Cape Town, Native Young are the true encapsulation of this sound. Formed by songwriter and producer Yannick Meyer, the six-piece band brands themselves as “kasi pop”. Blending traditional African instruments with creative hooks to create an accessible indie sound. The Grind Radio caught up with the band ahead of their performance at Mieliepop Festival to discuss the water crisis in Cape Town, whether pineapples belong on pizza and what winning feels like.
