From Cape Town to Danang: South African musician debuts SHADYLANE’s single in Vietnam


On January 8th, 2021, Cape Town based musician Rowan Nelsen, along with his Vietnam-based band SHADYLANES, released their music video for the worldwide debut of their single titled ‘Just My Type (feat. Tabitha)’.

The Indie/Rock band is made up of an energetic trio from the Southern Hemisphere who met in Hanoi, Vietnam: Daniel Yarranton (Hamilton, New Zealand) on drums, Rowan Nelsen (Cape Town, South Africa) on vocals and guitar, and Nache Chan (Melbourne, Australia) on bass.

“‘Just My Type (feat. Tabitha)’ is an ode to moments of resisting love for the sake of pursuing your dreams”, says Nache Chan, SHADYLANE’s bassist. “It encapsulates the feeling of not wanting to be distracted from your goals, even by the right person.”

The music video was filmed by Son Hai Productions who worked with the band over three days shooting at several sites in Danang to capture the essence of the city they call their “second home”.

SHADYLANES relocated to Danang in September 2020 after establishing the band in Hanoi where they rose rapidly in the local music scene, regularly playing shows around Vietnam, as well as featuring on national news station VTV and being the only foreign band showcased on Bandland Channel.

“As a band, we’re devoted to growing our brand and skillset to higher levels with each and every new release,” says Chan. “We’re adamant about keeping things rolling while the world is shut down which means recording, producing and mixing all our material in the confines of my apartment”.
