Die Saad Van Die Onkruid
“The lyrics is about a cheeky love triangle and a cursed family who are battling to escape a dark past. I was toying with the idea that this song could have worked really well on a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack if he happened to be a poor Afrikaans filmmaker…” – Willim Welsyn
Willim Welsyn, Afrikaans rocker, songwriter and award-winning podcaster, is back with a brilliant new music video for the song Die Saad Van Die Onkruid off his 2018 SAMA-nominated rock album Blitzkriek.
The video, which Willim produced himself, is a challenging collage animation based on green screen footage that was shot by chance during a previous video session. Willim spent months trying to come up with a concept and eventually started experimenting with old magazine clippings that he used to create collage backgrounds. Every collage holds meaning that has particular bearing on each of the group’s members, as well as a few mysterious pop-culture Easter eggs. The result is a compulsive artwork that comes to life to the beat of a Karoo-anthem.

Along with the video comes new WAT Podcast episodes at the end of February and an online merch store is in the pipeline as well!
