The Jungle Giants Return With Single “Trippin Up”

The Jungle Giants Return With Single “Trippin Up”

Absolute titans of the Australian indie world, The Jungle Giants return today with their new single “Trippin Up” – the first single from their upcoming fifth full-length record. The playful earworm blankets the listener in a cocoon of sensation that renders them unable to resist the urge to groove along with the track’s whimsical melody. Sonically vibrating between electropop and indie-rock, the genre-agnostic band peels back the first layer of what fans can expect out of their next body of work.

In the track’s official video by Pollen Arts Club and directed/produced by Leigh and Joe Agius, lead singer Sam Hales is dancing through the digital plane. Fusing many styles and mediums of art, the video mirrors the difficulty of placing The Jungle Giants’ music into a defined box. Following the release of their 2021 #1 ARIA Chart-topping fourth album Love Signs, the band has cemented their place as a dominant force down under and is now seeing their reach mushroom out across the globe. Tonight, they kick off a run of headline shows in Mexico. Earlier this month, they brought their free-spirited antics to the stages of Florida’s Okeechobee Festival and M3F in Arizona. The band was also announced on the 2023 Outside Lands lineup.

On today’s release, Hales said, “So pumped to be releasing ‘Trippin Up’! It all began with a dive into some aspects of electronic drum production that were so fun to experiment with. Can’t wait to see that drop live, baby.”
