We are Gateway Drugs, an electronic synth/new wave band from Cape Town, South Africa. We make music with drum machines, guitars with too much reverb, and all sorts of dreamy synthesizers.
We released a self-titled album a while ago and recently released another, called ‘Dare Tonight’ on 23 February 2015.
Our influences are vast an eclectic but The Human League, LCD Soundsystem, Cut Copy, Italians Do It Better (Glass Candy, Chromatics, etc), 80’s italo-disco one time wonders; and Afrosynth like early Brenda Fassie, Yvonne Chaka-Chaka, and Hotstix are a few of them.
Hope you enjoy the new song!
Dave and Andy (Gateway Drugs)
