One of Australia’s biggest independent acts, Brisbane’s buzzing The Jungle Giants return to our shores, with the irresistible “In Her Eyes,” shared from their forthcoming album next year. Wrapped in the outfit’s patented, habit-forming and celebratory groove, the Brisbane band have also perfectly paired the new single’s dizzying chorus with a stylistically surreal, and beautifully bizarre video to get to know the track by (don’t miss it just below!).
“It feels so good to finally get “In Her Eyes” out. Both the lyrics and production are really close to my heart. This track delves a little more into some of the themes explored on the upcoming record. It’s a song not only about being in love with someone, but also going deeper into self love. Sometimes you gotta back your own horse.” — Sam Hales/The Jungle Giants
Melbourne film director Julian Lucas describes the video’s concept as “about a man’s narcissistic obsession with his own reflection. This manifests into a beautiful love story where he falls head over heels in love…with himself.”
The Jungle Giants 2020 world tour found the four-piece in the United States, Mexico, Japan, UK, Netherlands and France just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March. With the rest of touring cancelled, Sam Hales focused his efforts on writing and recording the band’s forthcoming album due in 2021.
The Jungle Giants consists of Sam Hales, lead guitarist Cesira Aitken, bassist Andrew Dooris and drummer Keelan Bijker. Together they have released three albums, “Learn to Exist” (2013), “Speakerzoid” (2015) and “Quiet Ferocity” (2017). They have amassed over 300 Million combined streams worldwide to date and counting.
