It's January 2019, the new year has just dawned. For most, it comes with the hope of great adventures and new beginnings. For me, it's eleven months until the next iteration of Endless Daze

Now, as we finally enter the latter stages of 2019, I unconsciously salivate at the prospect of feeling the ocean breeze pinch my cheeks, with a kombucha+tequila in hand, listening to voyeuristic band music.

I have longed to relive the moments from last years Endless Daze. From stupidly watching the Arsenal-Liverpool game backstage during headliners Morena Leraba's performance, to hearing Diamond Thug thank the Rocking the Daisies crowd for their support, there are always entertaining moments borne from mistakes, but it's ultimately the purposeful performances that make the event worthwhile.

Anyways, this year, to highlight some of the acts that we've featured on Indie Shuffle, and as a way to promote Endless Daze, I've conducted a few of my favored 51I's (5-1-Interviews). That is, five questions which require one worded answers. It makes for light reading.

First off, HONEYMOAN -- South Africa's freshest pick from the past year:

1. Based on music that you've heard in languages you don't speak, which do you wish you could understand? (links to specific songs are welcome)

Yes

4. A song of yours that you'd like to plug? (has to be one worded)
