HOKUM (previously known as Marlowe) is a three piece progressive rock band, hailing from Johannesburg, South Africa. As Marlowe, they played all the major festivals in South Africa, and at the time were the biggest heavy rock band in the country. Under HOKUM, the band have plied countless more hours in the practice room and on the live music circuit.
They released their debut album, ‘The Money Eaters’, in 2010. One of our songs, ‘The Emerald’, has been played on various radio stations (Mix FM, 5FM) and our song, ‘Touch Power’, was play-listed on Tuks FM and other varsity radio stations.
They have since played ‘Oppikoppi festival’, and ‘Krank’d Up’ with the likes of 36Crazy Fists and Monuments. The fan base has grown considerably and continues to grow, with interest being shown locally and around the world from the USA, Australia and Germany, as well as Russia and Canada.
HOKUM have just released their new video for the single, ‘Tonight is Your Night’, and are now preparing their next album, ‘Human. Sex. Equation,’ to be released this year, 2020.
