Fifteen hours southwest of the bustling metropolis of Johannesburg is the beautiful city of Cape Town. A picturesque spot along the coast, mountains rise out of the sea and winding roads snake along the ocean, connecting a downtown filled with high rises to smaller bayside villages. People here have a reputation for being more relaxed, and moving at a slower pace.

Over the last five years, a psychedelic and garage rock scene has sprung up here that has gained attention across the country.

Sannie Fox is a part of that movement. Before releasing her solo debut, Serpent Machine in 2015, she was part of the three-piece band Machineri. Bringing together her Afrikaans, Portuguese and Welsh heritage, all combined into the unique perspective of someone who moved to South Africa as a child.

Fox is working on a new album, and you'll hear some of the unreleased material in this session at Milestones Studios in Cape Town.

Hear it all in the player above.
