Today, Jaala reveals a new offering ‘Sames‘ from her forthcoming record Joonya Spirit out Friday 20th April via Bedroom Suck Recordings / Remote Control Records.
Lead singer and guitar Cosima describes the track which premiered on Triple R’s Breaking And Entering yesterday “It’s a song written from the perspective of Pikachu who, to quote HTMLflowers, wants to ‘go full Raichu’. Replace the word ‘sames’ with ‘caterpillar’ and you’re getting pretty close.”
Through your ears, deep in your mind, down in your heart, in a way you never knew you wanted, Jaalawill caress you and Jaala will entice you. Like the roots of a tree Jaala is ever growing, pruned only by themselves and never by the expectations of the public.
In 2015, Jaala released their debut album Hard Hold running out of the gate and to the top of most critics ‘Best Of’ lists including a nod for AMP Album Of The Year, feature record on triple j, Album Of The Week on RRR, FBi Radio, RTR and SYN FM and clocking rave reviews on Pitchfork, FADER and NPRabroad.
Since the release of Hard Hold they have transformed into a completely new animal, stylistically and literally. The addition of Carolyn Schofield (synth) of Fia Fiell fame has moved the band towards a more haunting, dreamy experimental pop movement as opposed to the guitar shredding melt your face prog rock vibes of yesteryear.
Vocalist/guitarist Cosima pay and drummer/genius Maria Moles stand firm with their intricately woven telepathy. The ornate and ever flowing creativity is still ubiquitous, only it feels different now, rather than falling down a beautiful waterfall into a pit of demons that become your mates it’s more like your feet have been confiscated at the same time as you’ve been given the ability to fly.
Keep your ears peeled for April 2018 when their new album Joonya Spirit is unleashed upon the world in all it’s untouchable glory.
