MYMYMY Vocalist, Jana Oosthuizen in their latest music video ‘Net Musiek’ - Filmed by Marike Herselman
Cape Town’s bilingual pop-synth duo, MYMYMY release their first music video for their latest single ‘Net Musiek’, off their debut EP ‘ONS S'N IS BETER’ today. Shortly after their Cape Town launch this month, members Conrad and Jana just seem to keep celebrating and busking in the success that their music has achieved so far. They’re latest release is also set to make its television premiere on KykNET NOU!.
Their approach with their debut EP and this video was clever, striking simplicity. Jana grips viewers with her piercing eyes and effortless, natural performance style in front of the camera. The scenes switch between Jana and old victorian style oil canvases getting a fresh coat of pastel coloured paint, creating this sort of hypnotising effect that sucks the viewers in and holds them, eyes glued to the screen. Their tongue-in-cheek lyrics add to their ability to captivate their audience and present things in an entirely new light.
Filming, directing and editing has all been skillfully done by talented fashion photographer and videographer, Marike Herselman in Cape Town.

Their latest single release to radio, ‘MeMeMe’ can be heard on 2 Oceans Vibe Radio, Rhodes Music Radio, Radio Laeveld, Mix FM, River FM, One FM and Kosmos Stereo among others.
The thing about electronic music is that it can be made to feel quite impersonal, but that’s certainly not the case with electronic power duo MYMYMY. Perhaps it’s their combination of clever lyrics and organic sounding vocals. It goes beyond selecting good samples, layering, mixing and all that when an electronic act is able to stir something in you.
MYMYMY is an electronic music concept that is sure to change preconceived ideas of the genre in both the English and Afrikaans market in South Africa. As this synth pop duo puts it, “Someone fiddles with knobs and keys. Someone's lips parts seductively. Amazing sounds follow.”
