KONGOS – Come With Me Now

Kongos (sometimes styled as KONGOS) is a South African alternative rock band consisting of four brothers: Johnny, Jesse, Dylan and Daniel Kongos. They spent their childhoods in the city of  London and in South Africa.

They compose, record and perform in Phoenix, Arizona. The four men are the sons of John Kongos. They are of Greek origin and have attended the Greek Saheti  school in Gauteng,  South Africa. The film Holy Motors used their song “Come with Me Now” in the official trailer.

The band’s debut album Lunatic was released in 2012.  Kongos‘ single “I’m Only Joking”, from their album Lunatic topped various South African charts including all three of Tuks FM‘s charts and received copious airtime on 5FM and on many other stations in South Africa.

The music video for the song debuted on TV 5 on SABC 3 and was in rotation on MKTV. Their second single “Come with Me Now” was in rotation on both 5FM and Tuks FM. The song appeared on the 5FM Top 40 and the Tuks FM Top 30 charts.

In late October 2013, the band self-released Lunatic in the United States.  In 2014, both “I’m Only Joking” and “Come with Me Now” began receiving noticeable exposure in the United States, gaining momentum in airplay on radio and being featured in television commercials there.

As a result, the band was signed by Epic Records in late January 2014 and the band re-released Lunatic. “Come with Me Now” has sold more than 70,000 copies as of March 2014.
