Best SA Music!
With a knack for getting the party started, Karly V, who has been performing live on the South African circuit for over 7 years and, secretly songwriting in the comfort of her home, has finally decided to release some original music. Her breathtaking debut single Sometimes makes its national debut today, and indicates a promising start in a burgeoning career for the artist at large.
Growing up in a musical family, a career in the arts was inevitable for the Afrikaans speaking Karly. Placed in front of the piano before she could even walk, the songstress has been entertaining audiences from an early age and began songwriting when she was just 12 years old.
Asked why it’s taken her so long to release her original music, Karly explains, “Throughout the years I did a lot of recordings. A lot. I even recorded a proper album that was never released because of unfortunate circumstances. I guess one becomes discouraged after a few disappointments, but I’ve finally summoned up the courage to do this thing full on.”
With all her experiences culminated in this single, Sometimes is Karly’s finest work to date.
Better known for his romantic ballads, I’m Yours and Paradise, the fun-loving and often conservative musician wanted to create something a little more risky, something with flair that would add a little groove to your step. MAGIC does exactly that. Written together with Howie Combrink at The Hit Lab, MAGIC, with it’s funky beat, is sure to put on smile on your face. Even more enticing are the lyrics – for those who dare to take a closer listen.
“Magic is just about having a really good time when you are with someone… be it ‘naughty or nice,’” he explains. “The song is funky and catchy which was the fun part and it’s just an all round feel good track.”
