Jagwar Ma emerged last year with the captivating single 'Come Save Me'. Combining the earworm melodic sensibilities of 60's sunshine pop with a tightly euphoric modern electronic edge, the Sydney-based duo of Jono Ma and vocalist Gabriel Winterfield quickly sent ripples across the blogosphere and heralded the arrival of a fresh-faced dose of kaleidoscopic, danceable psychedelia.
Now, armed with new single 'The Throw' and a forthcoming debut album due later in the year on new independent label Marathon Artists, Jagwar Ma have entered 2013 in no uncertain terms. Already greeted with unanimous excitement by a rapidly growing international fan-base and enthusiastic supporters in press and radio alike, 'The Throw' is a giddily disorienting and exhilarating seven-minute whirlpool of psych groove projected through a prism of pulsating acid house and 90's rave, culminating in a strobe-lit vocal mantra and trance-like rhythm.
Signifying the bands rapid strides, Jagwar Ma will be embarking on a set of European dates supporting Foals as well as playing a select number of UK dates, including headlining an NME Awards show February 26th at Birthdays.
