JAGWAR MA

Since the release of 2013’s ‘Howlin’ Jagwar Ma have played sold out shows across the world and supported the likes of Tame Impala, The xx and Foals, filling festival tents and clubs alike with their explosive, hypnotic live performances, not to mention legendary DJ sets - most recently illustrated through their televised Park Stage performance at Glastonbury, and a raucous closing DJ set at the Crows Nest the same weekend.

Now the song-writing duo of multi-instrumentalist and producer Jono Ma, singer and guitarist Gabriel Winterfield return with their second album ‘Every Now & Then’.

The new record returns to the melody soaked nods to club culture and instantaneous vocal hooks they’ve become well known for, but has also seen them employ their passion for the Beastie Boys, citing this eclectic album as their ‘Paul’s Boutique’. Overall this stunning record encapsulates the band at their most entrancing and anthemic – a wig out of oscillating acid bassline, ricocheting dub-fused guitars and heady pop psychedelia bathed in strobe-lit sonics.

It was self-produced and recorded in the United Kingdom, Australia and France, then tweaked and mixed with the assistance of some of their brightest contemporaries, James Ford (Florence and The Machine, Arctic Monkeys), Blue May (Kwes, Kindness), Ewan Pearson (LCD Soundsystem, Chemical Brothers) and David Wrench (Caribou, FKA Twigs, Glass Animals).

Jagwar Ma X Dreems

Another Day In The Sun

    Meeting up in Australia after time spent in Europe and North America, old friends and collaborators Angus Gruzman (Dreems) and Jono Ma (Jagwar Ma) teamed up in Sydney and celebrated their personal climate change with a cover of The Moffs '80s cult classic. Equal parts of each artist shimmer in this visceral version of ‘Another Day In The Sun’

    A love letter to the end of the summer, also featuring the vocals of Gabriel Winterfield (Jagwar Ma), the song takes sonic cues from their surroundings on the Australian east coast. This is a one-off collaboration released to tie-in with Dreems current tour dates.

    Jagwar Ma, the duo Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfield, first bonded in Sydney, Australia over a mutual passion of melody and experimental beats, setting out to create a sound that would capture their love for contemporary electronica & classic American pop harmony, Joe Meek & King Tubby, vintage drum machines & radio frequency manipulation, Ray Davies’ vintage amp noise and improvised percussion. Hot on the heels of powerhouse singles ‘The Throw’ and ‘Man I Need’, Jagwar Ma are now pleased to announce their debut album Howlin

    The album was recorded in a secluded town in the North of France, just the two of them in an almost farm with an 808, a Fender jaguar, a laptop & a pair of vintage Neve console channels, and neighbors with a thing for hardcore sound systems. Collaborators along the way included long-time friend & Warpaint drummer, Stella Mozgawa and renowned Berlin producer/mixer, Ewan Pearson, adding another station to the globe-spanning journey the songs have travelled.

    Across its eleven tracks, Howlin twists addictive hooks around often dirty and clanking breakdowns. Pop songwriting is buried in layers of crunching synths and pedal effects, from 60’s beat to the strobe-lit warehouses of acid house via the techniques and sonic feel of dub and the touchstones of anthemic British guitar music, reveling in the vibrant tension between the discovery of something classic and future-looking experiments
