Cape Town - Fokofpolisiekar is back with something very special. 

The band premiered the music video for the stripped-down song Komma on Wednesday and it gave us goosebumps.

The video was filmed live at Kirstenbosch Gardens in Cape Town and it’s only the third ballad that Fokofpolisiekar have ever written.

The song is a departure from the band’s usual sound.  For the first time the sound is completely stripped down to just a piano and Francois van Coke’s voice.   


Here’s Fokofpolisiekar’s Wynand Myburgh tells how Komma came to be:

"We were finishing off the writing of Selfmedikasie and we had no intention of throwing a ballad into the mix. One day Johnny played a melody on the piano and that sparked the beginning of what would become Komma. Hunter started working on lyrics and at the end of the recording session a day was set aside to finish off the rough ideas for this piano-driven track. We were not too worried and if things did not come together that day, we were going to leave it be. Somehow it worked out and Komma came to life. I think we are all happy about how it turned out and how spontaneous it happened. Sometimes those are the gems.’’
