Listen: The Jungle Giants ‘She’s A Riot EP’ Track By Track With Sam Hales

Written by Brayden Darke on August 2, 2012

Brisbane’s The Jungle Giants released their sophomore EP She’s a Riot last week to wide critical acclaim, as well as notching up some radio play for their first single and title track of the same name. We were lucky enough to catch up with the group’s frontman and songwriter Sam Hales for a track-by-track run down of each song from the EP (below), just before he heads out to tour around places such as Melbourne, Adelaide, the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Canberra, Newcastle and Sydney throughout this month.

You can buy the album through the band’s official online store as a digital or physical copy, as well as the option to bundle it with a T-shirt.

She’s a Riot

“I wrote this one after a pretty bad break-up. The girl I was seeing was really crazy, and the song is based on our relationship in that sense. It’s about being lost in this weird cycle with someone, where everything is up in the air but you are still having fun.”


Don’t Know What Else to Do

“This song came about while I was driving to band practice one day. I was crushing on this girl, and was thinking about how I used to act when I liked someone. The song kind of reflects those memories.”


You’ve Got Something

“I wrote this one at home in my room. I’d found some lyrics I’d written from when I was like 16, and liked the message they had. It’s loosely based on a memory of someone in my life that wasn’t very honest, and kind of reflects how I felt during the time I knew them.”


Way Back When

“This song is pretty old. I wrote it around the same time as ‘Mr Polite’. The song is about an old friend. It’s also about the feeling you get when you fully understand someone, and vice versa.”


Back to the Start
“This one was a really fun one to write. It’s also pretty old, but has kind of been given a bit of life in the recording. It’s about not knowing who or what you want to be, but at the same time not freaking out over that.”
