Internet Girl Announced As Apple Music's Latest Up Next South Africa Artists

By @AtlehangMoloi on 06/13/2024 in News

Cape Town-based punk hyperpop trio, Internet Girl, has been named the next recipient of Apple Music’s Up Next program for June, a local version of their global emerging artist platform which they launched early in 2021.

“It’s insane; we’re super stoked to be on Up Next!” the band tells Apple Music. “It’s been a crazy year so far, seeing some dreams come to fruition—now this is pretty cool. But we’re greedy; we want more! This is just the beginning for Internet Girl.”

Since their formation in 2019, Internet Girl (Ntsika Bungane, Matthew Burgess, and James Smith) have carved out a niche that’s completely their own as a mixed-raced boy band who blend gritty live shows with grungy attitude and unique production. Growing a solid, global fan base through a barrage of single and EP releases since 2019, lead vocalist Ntsika consistently conveys a self-assertive attitude, aided and inspired by the production of Matthew and James. 

Their new EP ‘ROLE MODEL’ serves as an almost reintroduction of the trio as they pivot to embrace a new sound and ethos through elements of punk and rap. Through crass and confrontational songwriting, Ntsika tells the story of an anti-hero who traverses through the seedy underbelly of Cape Town’s city life, anchored in the explosive singles 'ROLE MODEL' and 'COKEHEAD'. 

As the newest Up Next artist to be spotlighted in South Africa, Internet Girl will be featured across Apple Music’s South African Up Next playlist.
