Australian psych/dance outfit and Sub-Sonic Live alumni Jagwar Ma returned with their sophomore album 'Every Now & Then' on 18th October. It's the follow up to their critically acclaimed kaleidoscopic dub-pop debut Howlin' (2013).
'Every Now & Then' came about after Jagwar Ma spent 3 years touring their debut around the world with the likes of Tame Impala, Foals and The XX, when Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfeld returned home to Sydney.
They have already released 3 tracks from the album, 'O B 1', 'Give Me A Reason' & 'Slipping' and the new album looks set to be an electrifying mix of psychedelic rock, baggy/madchester beats and indietronica.
Speaking of lead single 'O B 1' Jono said "After saving all my pennies to get my hands on an old Oberheim synthesizer, the very first sequence I programmed on it became the vertebrae for O B 1. Designed for nocturnal road trips and foraging through forests for morning fresh champignons.” The song, adds Gab, is “about moving through the motions of life under the influence of lost love, the fear of letting go of the past when not having anything set in place in the future to hold on to".
