“Blood Twisting Brilliance” – Q ****
“Blissed-out harmonies and delicious hooks” The Times *****
“Fuses, dance and guitar music in a way that hasn’t been done for 20 years… Jagwar Ma make it look effortless” NME 9/10
Jagwar Ma have taken 2013 by storm with the release of their debut album ‘Howlin’ which gathered critical praise from all quarters and was hailed as the quintessential album for this summer, the scene is set for the Australian duo.
With a reputation as an incredible live act but only a handful of UK and Ireland dates under their belt to date, including a tremendous set at this years Electric Picnic, the anticipation is high to see them return next May.
Jagwar Ma’s debut album 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.
