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.
