Listen To The New Jungle Giants Single ‘Heavy Hearted’

As promised, Brissie indie-pop legends The Jungle Giants have returned with a new single today entitled ‘Heavy Hearted’ ahead of their biggest national tour to date.

‘Heavy Hearted’ is the first new music we’ve heard from the four-piece since their 2017 album Quiet Ferocity. Produced and engineered by frontman and principal songwriter Sam Hales, the groovy, primarily electronic track builds around a syncopated piano line and has a big collage of sounds behind it – while maintaining a kind of big pop energy to the whole thing.

“‘Heavy Hearted’ has been with me as an me as an instrumental track for so long that I’d forgotten the title a bunch of times and nearly lost it in my sessions,” says Hales about the song. “That bass line and beat would always creep its way back into my mind though. It’s been a sweet journey watching the track grow and it just feels right to share it. It’s also been a chance for me to play around with some of my production tricks so that’s a little bonus.”

The Jungle Giants will be releasing ‘Heavy Hearted’ as a 7” vinyl single will be available on their upcoming tour this September and October. The six-date run of shows will be the largest yet for the band.
