Jagwar Ma has been wowing audiences everywhere with upbeat, psychedelic rock since breaking onto the indie scene with 2013’s Howlin’. The band combines bright synths, wailing guitars, and ethereal vocals to create a unique sound that plays out perfectly live. On tour Jagwar Ma tears through fan favorites like “The Throw” along with other cuts from their debut album and delivers one thrilling show after another for eager ticket buyers.
Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Jagwar Ma was formed in 2011 by friends Gabriel Winterfield, Jono Ma, and Jack Freeman. The three-piece began recording demos in their living room studio that ranged from Motown to EDM and spent several years experimenting with different instruments before arriving at their distinct, psychedelic sound. The band relocated to France soon after and released their 2013 EP The Time and Space Dub Sessions, which put them on the indie music radar as ones to watch. They broke out with their full-length debut later that year titled Howlin’ which received praise from major publications like NME and Pitchfork and spawned opening gigs on Foals’ and the XX’s tours. They sold out several headlining dates of their own, made appearance at world-renowned festivals like Glastonbury and Coachella, and continue to bring infectious energy whenever they play their dance-inducing tracks for excited fans.
