Queensland's The Jungle Giants have announced a run of national tour dates which accompany their latest single "I Am What You Want Me To Me". The band has already enjoyed a huge amount of success off the back of the already released "Mr Polite" and "No One Needs To Know", and this song is right out of the same bag of good, decent indie-pop fun. Tickets for the tour go on sale from Friday, May 24.

In 2012, Adelaide's 5/4 Entertainment teamed up with Splendour in the Grass' Paul Piticco to put on a "bite sized" Splendour in Adelaide, dubbed the "Spin Off Festival". The first year featured, Lana Del Rey, Kimbra, Band of Skulls and more. 2013 will see the festival returning to give Adelaide fans a reason to celebrate. It will take place at the Thebarton Theatre on Friday, August 2nd.
Last Friday night I peeped behind Electric Playground to find 3 dynamite bands play at The Rev Alley including The Jungle Giants (pictured), Dune Rats and Alpine. The intricacy was very exciting, have a look at the photos from night!
Brisbane’s third Track and Field festival features a collection of artists who are on the rise nationally and beyond, and (for the uninitiated) has absolutely nothing to do with athletics. Headlined by Melbourne’s Alpine, the event also featured local talents The Jungle Giants and Dune Rats plus Tasmania’s Triple J Unearthed High 2012 winner Asta. Held somewhat unusually at Electric Playground, the night turned out to be a great success and genuinely entertaining time for everyone.
Both playing Track and Field in Brisbane this Friday, we asked Dune Rats and The Jungle Giants to shoot each other some questions and here's what came back... the results are... interesting...
Two Door Cinema Club. The first and only time I have seen the band play was at Laneway two years ago. They were amazing them, sensational now.
National tours must be draining experiences. Playing two New Year’s Eve shows in different locations, flying to a New Year’s Day festival and then travelling back up two days later for your headline Sydney show. Oof! Even with such a hectic schedule, it was great to see the increasingly popular Two Door Cinema Club absolutely light up the Hordern with an electrifying performance.
The final day of the Falls Festival arrives and despite everyone being weary and dirty, the energy is still there. The Falls Fiesta parade at sunset is a highlight. The New Year is heralded in by Two Door Cinema Club on the Valley Stage and the fantastic Parachute Youth in the Grand Theatre. The party carried on till dawn, showing that the 20th anniversary of the Falls Festival was one to remember. Our photographer John Goodridge brings you these photos.
The annual Falls Festival always delivers a great bunch of bands to our shores and since the festival itself is quite expensive I generally look forward to the sideshows that come out of it. With a double header from Two Door Cinema Club and The Vaccines, I think that this was this year's winner.
Known for their usually uplifting and bright music, Brisbane indie outfit The Jungle Giants have gone a little darker with the recent release of "You've Got Something". Taken from their current EP She's A Riot, the band go black and white in their latest visual offering directed by fellow Queenslander Anthony Salsone.
What do you get when you throw a bunch of Irish, British and Australian musicians on a boat? A load of antics, I'm betting. If you want to get along and find out, then Secret Sounds has the perfect opportunity for you.
