Listen to latest single Medicine on SoundCloud – soundcloud.com/jakarta-criers
Jakarta Criers’ upcoming second EP Regal Twin, due to be released in the second half of 2015, is a progressive leap into the redefinition of the bands signature sound. Regal Twin strips the Jakarta Criers sound back to the bands core framework and rebuilds it with new influences and experiences to create a modern EP that encompasses everything the band loves about music. The EP’s first single, Medicine, perfectly demonstrates this new direction and heads the strongest group of songs the band has written to date.
Teaming up with highly acclaimed Australian producer Jean-Paul Fung (Birds of Tokyo, Last Dinosaurs, Lime Cordiale) has been a telling step in the right direction. This has brought a new perspective and a modern influence, honing in on the band’s greatest musical attributes to deliver a powerful new sound and opening up a bright future for the Brisbane four-piece.
Medicine is still vintage Jakarta Criers, with a solid foundation of powerful melodies and intricate lyrics, but this time rebuilt into a new structure that will stand the test of time.
