UNLEASH BAG RAIDERS REMIX OF
+ CONTINUE ARIA CHART SUCCESS
+ RESCHEDULED TOUR DATES THIS NOV/DEC
|The Jungle Giants have enlisted their upcoming tour mates Bag Raiders for a cracking dancefloor banger remix of their album title track ‘Love Signs’.|
Sam Hales from The Jungle Giants says “So pumped to get this remix out. I remember the first time I ever heard a Bag Raiders remix…I was in a club in NYC and actually shazamed it on the dance floor. The guys are legends and great people with undeniable talent. They are hitting the road with us in support of the new album so it’s a pretty red-hot double whammy that Love Signs also receives it’s first remix from them.”
Says Bag Raiders of the remix, “Missing the club so much at the moment! Hopefully this transports you like it does us to a dark, smokey dance floor laaaaaaate at night. When only the most committed remain. Let the personal journey begin.”
The Jungle Giants will be taking their fourth album Love Signs on the road this November/December, and as mentioned Bag Raiders are special guests on the night, bringing a DJ set designed to get the party started early.
Love Signs was released in July and took out the #1 spot on debut on the ARIA Albums Chart. The album has spent eight weeks at the top spot on the ARIA Dance Albums Charts after also claiming the #1 Vinyl and #1 Australian Artists Album position.
This is the bands highest position on the ARIA Albums Chart with previous album Quiet Ferocity reaching #11 on release in 2017.
A highly anticipated album, Love Signs was written and produced solely by lead singer Sam Hales, and features fan favourites ‘Heavy Hearted’, ‘Sending Me Ur Loving’, ‘In Her Eyes’, ‘Treat You Right’ and the album title track ‘Love Signs’.
Not only was making this album “really self-affirming” for Hales, it’s also shaping up to be The Jungle Giants’ most successful. First single ‘Heavy Hearted’ went ARIA-certified Platinum and won the fiercely competitive Queensland Music Awards “2020 Song of the Year”. Follow-up ‘Sending Me Ur Loving’ was praised by KCRW for its “exquisite hooks and pristine production”, while “groove-heavy” third single ‘In Her Eyes’ was lauded by NME. The first three singles also placed in Triple J’s Hottest 100, with both ‘Heavy Hearted’and ‘Sending Me Ur Loving’ placing 8th in consecutive years (making a total of 7 consecutive songs that have made the list).
Not that these are The Jungle Giants’ first accolades— as mentioned their third album Quiet Ferocity peaked at #11 on the ARIA charts and won AIR Awards’ “Best Independent Album or EP” and Queensland Music Awards’ “Album of the Year.” Previous singles ‘Feel The Way I Do’ and ‘Used To Be In Love’ certified Platinum, with ‘Bad Dream’ and ‘On Your Way Down’ certified Gold.
