 Pretoria, Gauteng, ZAF
BandRockAvant-garde

Take one measure of classical theory and stir it with Jazz improvisation, add a sprinkle of pop then cook it slowly till the booming bass bubbles. Shake the rhythms into the pot . Cool it in your fridge till the unique vocals pop out and Vuola! Nothing you've ever heard before.

Biography

Paint was formed in February 2010.3 months previous to that, the 3 musicians had began jamming weekly - with no other purpose but for the fun and love of creating music. One day they decided to name it.
Nelius Nortje, a jazz scholar at TUT, uses his classical and jazz training to bend sound into art with catchy hooks which grab the listeners attention faster than a centerfold in a classroom.
Jade Abbott and her booming bass frequencies humble the spectrum as she parades around the stage in a frenzy of passionate energy and love for the magic which is driven and inspired by Morné (Mojo) Barnardt, the golden frame around the art. Painting with sound.

Paint is based in Pretoria, South-Africa

Lyrics

Sing

Written By: Nelius Nortje

The Beginning of forever, is finally here
Your Subtle existence marks your everyday fear

Give me a sign and I'll make up my mind
but until then I'll just go on and on, on and on, on and on
on with my life I might decide but until then I'll just go on and on

My clock strikes 12, my clock strikes 12, for the rest of my life my clock will strike 12

So I sing, sing, I feel we're getting close
Now, now, today still counts the most
So I sing, sing, I feel we're getting close
Now, now, today still counts the most
So I sing, sing, I feel we're getting close
Now, now, today still counts the most

Love Sweet Dreams

Written By: Nelius Nortje

Try see as i see you'll like it way to much
you feel the real me I'm sure I pack a punch
Fight for the light and conquer

Days have come and gone
gone for far too long
now I need breathing I need feeling
I Need nothing more than you
When my lips touch you I turn dazed and confused so I run

Run Run Run through memories which I adore this feelings what I'm looknig for
Fun Fun Fun reality is what I need this Love Sweet Dream is all I seek

Nights have passed me by
Like dimonds in the sky
just like your eyes those timeless times
which passed us by oh I nedd you I need you
When my lips touch you I turn dazed and confused so I run

Run Run Run through memories which I adore this feelings what I'm looknig for
Fun Fun Fun reality is what I need this Love Sweet Dream is all I seek
Yeah
