22 Jul Standing Back for No One | Francois van Coke’s Music Video for ‘Behoort Aan Niemand Nie’
The music video for “Behoort Aan Niemand Nie”, featuring a melodic guitar solo from Jedd Kossew, is a fitting visual statement for the opening track of Francois van Coke’s self-titled solo album. The room in which he performs becomes a memoir as he covers the walls with newspaper clippings and photographs spanning his career. Van Coke is alone and vulnerable and presents us with a solo sound that makes a distinct departure from the music of Van Coke Kartel and Fokofpolisiekar.
Francois says he didn’t have any preconceived ideas about what the album should be like but that each song has its own sound and explores themes of personal failure, the reality of the world he lives in and self-honesty.
With over 20 000 Youtube hits on this video alone, it’s little surprise his tour presented by Jagermeister is already sold out in Pretoria and Cape Town.
