Kicking off with wailing guitar and liberally applied cowbell, ‘Every Kind Of Way’ is propelled by a driving rhythm and a provocative narrative that calls to mind the poets of the Beat Generation. The song showcases The Jungle Giants’ distinctive melodies and cheeky sense of humour, culminating in a sexy breakdown that will see Sam (vocals/guitar), Cesira (guitar), Andrew (bass) and Keelan (drums) rally The Jungle Giants’ army of fans.
Recorded in a makeshift studio inside an old Queenslander in rural South East Queensland, The Jungle Giants were thrilled to have their much-loved producer Magoo behind the sound desk for their recording once again. “It was a no brainer to go with him again,” explains The Jungle Giants front man, Sam Hales. “He’s like a family member. We’re all so comfortable with him that we don’t feel like there’s any wall between us creatively. We usually like the same things, he’s super-patient, and he’s willing to get weird.”
The Jungle Giants launched out of suburban Brisbane in 2011 with the single ‘Mr Polite’ from their debut self-titled EP. In 2012 the band followed up their debut EP with the single ‘She’s A Riot’ and an EP of the same name. In 2013 they fulfilled their early promise with the release of their debut album ‘Learn To Exist’; the album debuted in the Top 10 on the ARIA Digital Albums chart and secured the band’s place as one of the country’s must-see live outfits. The Jungle Giants had arrived.
’Every Kind Of Way’ shows a band that is completely confident in its sound. “Going into the recording our first album we were a little intimidated and didn’t feel relaxed,” explains band’s front man Sam Hales. “This time around we’re much more comfortable with recording and went in thinking we’d just try everything we wanted to try. It was a little chaotic and messy, but we felt like we could do whatever we wanted and no one could tell us otherwise.”
The Jungle Giants new single ‘Every Kind Of Way’ is out Friday 10 April. It will be available for pre-order from Wed April 1.
