Sydney band The Khanz are back with a new video for “Lost Control” the latest single from the Natural Instinct EP released earlier this year. After the band’s last video for “Prescription Culture“, I could only expect something just as or even more creative for the next. “Lost Control” is appropriately set in a bright, sunny park in which the band members are seemingly the center of either a game of “Cowboys and Indians” or a mock version of Lord of the Flies. The bright setting is fitting for the band’s light, quirky, African-infused rock sound while the chaotic children (with no parents and way too easy availability to gasoline and lighters) are clearly NOT under control.
I love the way this band creates such a fresh and full sound. They have such great layers to their style. The jungle and dance tones, beautiful vocal harmonies, and growl of a voice from Themba Thompson blend together to make songs that you want to rock out to and/or have a dance party to — and you don’t have to choose, there’s room to do both.
