Announced this morning to be joining the likes of The Darkness, Snakehips, Tash Sultana and Amy Shark on the bill of Australia’s favourite regional festival Groovin The Moo, Brisbane-based four-piece The Jungle Giants have revealed their highly anticipated new single Feel The Way I Do. The track is the first taste from the indie outfit since their critically acclaimed 2015 album Speakerzoid.
Feel The Way I Do is curiously abstract yet delightfully melodious. A seamless creative pairing of songwriting and production. The track was recorded at Empire Studios, the result of frontman Sam Hales’ “5 days a week, 9-5” approach to the musical adventure of album number three.
Racking up over 20 million Spotify streams, The Jungle Giants have become the poster people for taking creative risks in the studio, as seen throughout the journey from their first EP to triple j feature albums Learn To Exist and follow-up Speakerzoid. These releases spurred sold-out headline dates and appearances at all major Australian festivals, including a triumphant early evening set to an overflowing tent at Splendour 2016. Speakerzoid also saw them play shows in LA, New York, Toronto, Austin, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Jakarta.
Feel The Way I Do continues to mark the band’s key stylistic and musical evolution – a tantalising glimpse into the new record due later this year.
