ALT EGO’s “Get Wild” has been proudly playlisted on KFM and GoodHope FM, while the group has revealed sneak peeks of the song’s official music video to be launched next week.
ALT EGO has been an exciting new chapter in 2017 for the guys from Acoustic Element. With an exciting mash-up of electronic synths and acoustic music, this hybrid sound has excited many music fans, especially following the release of their debut single “Get Wild” in March, featuring local singer Amy Tjasink.
Since then, “Get Wild” has been officially playlisted on KFM and GoodHope FM, with the hit song entering the latter radio station’s SA HOT 20.
Callen Petersen, who stars on violin, expressed his gratitude in reaction to this amazing support.
“When we came up with the concept of ALT EGO, we were very nervous and excited at the same time. ALT EGO is completely new entity compared to Acoustic Element, which means a totally new personality and sound, so we were very interested to see how South Africa would react to our new sound. We are very grateful that it’s been so well supported so far,” says Callen.
“To be playlisted on major radio stations like KFM and GoodHope FM is a big positive – a huge shout-out to Carl Wastie (KFM) and Seano (GoodHope FM) for giving us the opportunity to introduce our song on their shows. It proves that there’s so much potential to ALT EGO. The exciting part is… it’s only the beginning.
“Acoustic Element is still going strong, and now we have much to look forward to as we evolve our new brand ALT EGO.”
More exciting news will see ALT EGO launch the “Get Wild” official music video next week. Jody, who performs on guitar, is very excited to showcase the song in visuals.
“As Cape Town locals, the music videos shows off all the beauty of the Mother City. From the water to ice cream to amazing views from our mountains, we explore different parts of Cape Town. It’s definitely our best music video yet, which sets the benchmark for our future projects,” says Jody.
“Huge credit must be given to our videographer Melissa Brown, who has been working really hard on this project. We can’t wait to release the final product very soon.”
