Video: Get to know The Herd one by one
Local hip-hop collective The Herd are putting out eight videos leading up to the release of ‘Future Shade’, with each clip featuring a different band member talking about a song on the album plus something about their life outside of The Herd. The first two videos are already online; part one stars vocalist Jane Tyrell, while part two takes a closer look at emcee Urthboy.
Jane is the most recent addition to The Herd, having joined after some memorable guest appearances at the first two launching shows for The Herd’s ‘The Sun Never Sets’. In this clip she talks about the track “Spin Cycle” and her double life as a fine artist.
In part two, founding member Urthboy talks about the very personal “Grandma’s Song” and his role as Elefant Traks label manager.
Known for their boisterous live shows, The Herd flaunt their new songs on the Future Shade Tour this August, starting at Splendour In The Grass and ending mid-September in Canberra. On their upcoming Future Shade Tour, The Herd will be supported by the electrifying soul duo Sietta – who are creating quite a buzz with their debut album, ‘The Seventh Passenger’.
