Bla Bla Bla Single
New Single OUT!
“BLABLABLA” is a psychedelic mesh that ultimately defies musical boundaries, from poppy guitar to futuristic synth melodies and punchy drums, which are even reminiscent of afro-beat in the song’s bridge. The theremin counter melody adds an extra kaleidoscopic dimension to the track, making 3 South & Banana stand out from his experimental psych-pop peers."

“The sound, and indeed the vision that follows is equally entrancing” Indie Berlin
"when it’s done this well, with this much intriguing variety, it’s a style that won’t stay out of the limelight for long"
For The Rabbits - EP premiere
This DIY video patch work of my new single "Bla Bla Bla" was recorded and performed by me, live in my studio in Berlin.
Fake Jungle is a lush, cosmic pop nugget that explores the theme of overcoming fear and doubt, via a surreal anecdote from Bernard’s time playing as a session drummer in Las Vegas, “one night James Brown came and sat in with a band I was playing with. I honestly could not play well. It was fear. Fear of not being good enough for James Brown”. The track title is a reference to the hotel Mirage in Las Vegas where Bernard played, which features a fake greenhouse jungle, and Bernard drew musical inspiration for the track from American psych-soul artist Shuggie Otis.
