Slug Life Gauteng Feb 2013
We’re stoked to announce that we’ve been nominated for 2 MK Awards in the categories of Best Group and Best Indie for our Stereo Kids video. Big thanks to Rob Smith and the rest of the team for making this all possible. Such an organised and professional shoot and the result I think speaks for itself ;)

OCCASIONAL LIES PLAYLISTING
Our 3rd single off Pyramid called “Occasional Lies” was recently submitted to radio stations around the country and we’ve been playlisted on 5FM, Tuks FM and MFM thus far. It’s a song we recorded in the first round of studio time for the album back in 2011. Listen out for it! But in the meantime you can listen to it on our Sound Cloud.

At the end of last year we won an MK MVP for Best Pretenders. Check out the result below of all Andover Productions labours (thanks Dan, Chrisy and Claude) as well as Sea Monsters amazingly creative animation below:
