Bio

Jakarta Criers’ upcoming second EP is a massive progressive step into a new sound. It is a concentration of all the best parts of the band to date, from their debut EP ‘Moonlife’, 2014 singles ‘Alright For Me’ and ‘Long Way Round’, and the members’ experiences together and individually. Teaming up with Australian producer Jean-Paul Fung (Birds of Tokyo, Last Dinosaurs, Lime Cordiale) has been a telling step in the right direction, whose influence has focussed the band’s greatest musical elements and characteristics to open up a bright future for the band.

The EP’s first single ‘Medicine’ heads a group of songs the strongest the band has written. The track is vintage Jakarta Criers, powerful melodies and intricate lyrics, but with a new defined sound, representing the best of Jakarta Criers’ new direction.

Jakarta Criers have always had a knack for writing a good pop hook and they've focused that energy into a catchy, concise tune.

Solid stuff, unlike the poor guy's heart in the song.

This is how I like my rock n roll thanks. slinging about like Josh Homme was playing with Spoon. Just wish there was a big scorching solo, would've brought it home for me
