Single Review – Jagwar Ma – Give Me A Reason

With 2013’s Howlin, the Sydney based duo of Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfield proved themselves to be talented producers and forgers of differing sounds. Since then, Australian music has been increasing in both critical and popular stature so it seems only apt that as they support Tame Impala on their tour, they release details of their second album Every Now and Then. They’ve already unveiled the sharp synth acid house style of ‘OB1’ and now they’ve released ‘Give Me A Reason’. This track maintains the tripping rhythms of a Stone Roses track, but is much more fluid with free, meandering synth chords and resonant beats. These single a dance rhythm and echoed Pop vocals. It is a track that seems to initially lack direction, but goes on to grow and flourish as each shift is seamless. A promising album is in the offing.
