Go the Rodeo is a progressive electro rock band from the western outskirts of Johannesburg.  Their current line-up consists of Robert Mitchley (bass guitar, backing vocals, keyboard), Corné van Niekerk (vocals, guitar) and Craig Atkinson (backing vocals, drums).  Their sound is a blend of indie rock, pop, and blues influences, with electronic elements inspired by the likes of The Kills, Queens of the Stone Age, Twenty-One Pilots, The Neighbourhood, The XX, Alt-J, Chet Faker, Enter Shikari, and Tame Impala.  Corné and Robert formed as a duo after being involved in various musical projects together.  In the beginning of 2017 they emerged with a fresh sound, and were joined by Craig Atkinson, drummer for the electronic/post-hardcore band Bombs and Issues.  They released their debut single “Sea Dog” in May of 2017 and went on to release multiple other singles in quick succession, including “Glass Walls” featuring guest vocals from US post-hardcore band Our Last Night.  The band will be releasing their debut album Lekker Chilled on July 26th.  Check out the tracks “Never C Ur Face Again” and “Give Me Black” from the album below.  You can follow the band and stay up-to-date with all upcoming band news, music and tour dates via the following links:
