Hot Water's new track "Springbok Amandla" will feature in the South Africa vs All Blacks rugby test match on Saturday 25 July 2015. Says Donovan: "In 1995 I was sitting in a little turquoise room in the middle of India feeling very emotional... The Springboks had just won the Rugby World Cup... It was so much more than a sports victory for South Africa, it was the symbolic unification of a nation. I have been inspired to create this warcry (represented by the image of Nelson Mandela in his Springbok rugby jersey) as a means to continue this journey."
Hot Water frontman Donovan Copley gives his perspective on the business of music licensing for top South African film industry magazine The Callsheet.
"...Hot Water, the Cape Town band which is among the best in the country. They might even be the best –
or that’s how it felt in the Grant Erskine Marquee [at Splashy Fen Festival in Kwazulu Natal] on Friday night."
