Love is visceral, and the eternal dance between lover and loved can be found at the epicentre of “Sixteen 100 Year Olds”. Hailing from the vibrant and diverse music industry in South Africa, The Amblers have a broad range of both local and international musical influences from Southern Gypsy Queen and The Black Cat Bones, to The Rolling Stones and Jack White. Their approach to music is raw but not unpolished, lending an authentic energy to huge drums and dirty, vintage guitar tones. Acclaimed drummer Jason Hinch provides an accomplished and powerful framework for Justin Swart to deliver his Raconteur’ish ideas of music and lyrics to a listener. Swart and Hinch undeterred by the global pandemic’s negative effects on the music industry have continued to work tirelessly at their craft. Sixteen 100 Year Olds, a blues infused hard rock song that will get your foot stomping from the opening riff.

“I love making music, it’s an endless struggle for me. Exhilarating, infuriating and wonderful. By the time we get to press releases like here and now, it’s all been done. No back peddling. No correcting. Only the wonderful torment ahead…I hope you enjoy the song and that you find something within it for your own story and journey. If not, maybe it’ll get you tapping your feet. Which is good too!” – Justin Swart (Voice and Guitar)

“Recording drums for this track at High Seas Studios was as always, a blast. Our approach has always been an organic one, but this one was special. The amount of vintage drum gear alone warms my little heart! One take, no edits, no samples. Simply good people in a good room, making music. What more could you ask for?” –Jason Hinch (Drums)


– A blues rock EP that deserves your full attention. TEXX AND THE CITY (SA)

– The Amblers have put together an incredible EP. It speaks of talent, musical ease and damn good melodies. TEO MAGAZINE. (AUS)

– In all, this is an impressive EP, its fresh, exciting and impassioned; I feel like they put their heart and soul into it. If you like moody, bluesy rock then this band are for you. If you like indie music, this band could also be for you. If you like GOOD music, this band is most definitely for you. I can’t wait to hear more from these guys. In the meantime, this EP will become a staple in my musical diet. Thank you. DOWN THE FRONT MEDIA (UK)

– Carrying a sound that leans towards the heavier side of things, fans of gritty, distorted bluesy rock a la Jack White or The Raconteurs are def. going to lap up these Johannesburg natives’ tunes. With a raw yet polished approached, the guys’ sound is simultaneously vintage and modern, and meriting further exploration. PURE GRAIN AUDIO (CANADA)
