Jagwar Ma is an act from Australia, recently formed by musician and producer, Jono Ma. This project seemingly appeared out of nowhere with the release of his single Come Save Me – but Jono Ma is no rookie on the music scene. He helped produce an album for Foals, he composed music for the Australian show The Slap, and he was formerly a member of The Lost Valentinos. Jagwar Ma is signed with the label Future Classic, which has also worked with Classixx, Sebastien Tellier, Flight Facilities, Holy Ghost!, The Magician, Tensnake, and many more.
Jagwar Ma has a nostalgic 60s/70s vibe combined with an electro-pop sound. According to his Facebook page, he draws influence from Aphex Twin, George Martin, Martin Hannett, and Phil Spector…although I’m not sure how much I trust his info section because he also claims he lives in Antarctica… Antarctica or not, I do know one thing for sure: Jagwar Ma is prowling onto the music scene, up the charts, and into my personal list of loved acts. Happy Monday. Binary Approves.
