BOTW #28 – Jagwar Ma

TGIF! Per request by my pal, Mo-riss, this week’s BOTW is the indie-surfy-electro-pop band, Jagwar Ma. Upon first listen, I instantly became a fan of their synthy light and upbeat sound, reminiscent of MGMT, Toro y Moi and your favorite 80’s new wave artists.

Relatively new to the indie scene, Jagwar Ma just recently released their debut album this year. With the use of contagious dance beats, B-52s-esque synth pads, Beach Boys-inspired guitar tones, and airy vocal effects, this Australian band creates a unique fusion that sounds fresh. but also gives listeners a blast from the past.

Jagwar Ma creates music that is perfect for a workout, a long commute, or even soundtracks for some independent movies!
