Bio

'Long Way Round' - A track where the dynamic instrumental content tells as much of the story as the lyrics themselves, Jakarta Criers' most recent single 'Long Way Round' is intense guitars and thumping drums, broken by space that promotes key lyrical images, and an underlining warmth, giving hope that everything will be fine in the end.

Back to their powerful, moody sound 'Long Way Round' represents the confusion of life's hard decisions, regardless of age or circumstance - "I get my advice from the coat rack in the hall... I'm not like the others, always taking it slow". The band's most heartfelt and personal song yetis heard in every second of the music, every inch of the production and every word of the lyrics.

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
