Last week The Jungle Giants announced that their highly anticipated fourth studio album ‘Love Signs’ will be released on Friday 23 July and a national tour will follow.
Today they reveal Dan Shake’s remix of current single Treat You Right. Glittering and dreamy, the remix starts slow and wistful, before throwing you out into the middle of the dancefloor. Dan Shake has put some special touches on this one and says “I was already a fan-boy, so remixing this was genuinely one of the funnest projects I’ve done this year! Even more of a fan-boy now…”
Sam Hales from The Jungle Giants continues “I’ve been a fan of Dan Shake since the first day I heard Buy Yourself Friends. I fell in love instantly. The fact that he’s had a hoon on Treat You Right is still blowing my mind. He’s delivered the remix in true Dan Shake Style. Sassy, saucy and a little bit sexy x”
To celebrate the upcoming release of ‘Love Signs’, The Jungle Giants have released a vibrant merch range, featuring four limited edition neon-coloured vinyl LPs and a tasty selection of apparel. These are all available for preorder via thejunglegiants.com
The Jungle Giants will appear on ABC TV’s The Set tomorrow night, performing their hits and a one-of-a-kind collaboration with Sycco and Patience Hodgson of The Grates.
‘Love Signs‘ was written and produced solely by Sam Hales and features previous singles Treat You Right, Heavy Hearted, Sending Me Ur Loving, and In Her Eyes.
After completing a world tour in early 2020, The Jungle Giants returned to Australia at the same time the pandemic hit, forcing everyone into strict lockdown. For Hales, the timing couldn’t have been better, providing the push he needed to properly go it alone creatively.
Not only was making this album “really self-affirming” for Hales, it’s also shaping up to be The Jungle Giants’ most successful. First single Heavy Hearted went ARIA-certified Platinum and won the fiercely competitive Queensland Music Awards “2020 Song of the Year”. Follow-up Sending Me Ur Loving was praised by KCRW for its “exquisite hooks and pristine production”, while “groove-heavy” third single In Her Eyes was lauded by NME. All three singles have also placed in Triple J’s Hottest 100, with both Heavy Hearted and Sending Me Ur Loving placing 8th in consecutive years; making a total of seven consecutive songs that have made the list.
Not that these are The Jungle Giants’ first accolades— their third album ‘Quiet Ferocity’ peaked at #11 on the ARIA charts and won AIR Awards’ “Best Independent Album or EP” and Queensland Music Awards’ “Album of the Year.” Previous singles Feel The Way I Do and Used To Be In Love certified Platinum, with Bad Dream and On Your Way Down certified Gold.
