Classixx: Borderline

Experimental South London pop, Molly Ringwald's favorite jazz tunes, dreamy synth-pop and more in our weekly look at music

In light of Cape Town’s Design Indaba, this week’s #PrivateJam comes from Craig Durrant, drummer of South African indie-rock outfit Desmond and the Tutus. Calling on hectic tour experiences in Japan, Durrant opted for the electro ballad “Borderline” by American duo Classixx. “I heard it for the first time when we had just missed our connecting flight to Tokyo,” Durrant explains. “We were probably going to miss the first show of the tour. It was super-exciting but then super-stressful. In the end, we took a later flight and arrived at the venue half an hour before we were going to play, tired as shit. The song makes me think of that every time.”
