Bio

Jaguar Jonze crafts songs of melancholic beauty woven with gun slinging guitar lines and a strikingly rich, yet intimate voice. Born in Japan to a Taiwanese mother and Australian father, Jaguar Jonze is as eclectic as her cultural upbringing oozing influences by the likes of Portishead, The Last Shadow Puppets, Nick Cave and Angel Olsen.

Jonze has spent the last 2 years between bunkering in a basement of Brisbane and a studio in the concrete jungle of Jakarta to harness a body of work that is nostalgic yet distinctive. From here comes Jonze’s debut single ‘You Got Left Behind’ – a driving, upbeat song suspended delicately above a breathtakingly haunting undercurrent.

Her first steps include showcases across Music Matters in Singapore, a single release party at The Foundry in hometown Brisbane and International Indie Music Festival for Pekan Raya in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Whatta debut: this is like spaghetti western Angel Olsen, and that super-sharp chorus! I'm getting on the Jaguar Jonze bandwagon now before it gets too crowded.
