THE JUNGLE GIANTS
Renowned for their energetic live sets filled with charging dance hooks and contagious choruses, The Jungle Giants have played shows across America, Asia, New Zealand and Australia, with successful appearances at epic festivals such as Groovin the Moo, Falls Festival and Splendour in the Grass.
The four-piece band dominated this year’s coveted triple j Hottest 100 – the only independent act to achieve four entries, including a top 20 inclusion with ‘Feel the Way I Do’.
Their third album Quiet Ferocity has produced several hit singles and received widespread praise, racking up well over 50 million Spotify streams and even getting the tick of approval from publications such as Rolling Stone.
Not a bad effort for an album produced and recorded entirely themselves!
Asta burst onto airwaves in 2012, and won over hearts with acoustic debut single ‘My Heart is On Fire’. Its strong vocal lines and opportune phrasing impressed, lead her to become the triple j Unearthed High winner and later took out the #50 position in the 2012 triple j Hottest 100.
Asta will bring her up-tempo funk sounds to Wanneroo and is sure to be have people up on their feet dancing to her hypnotic beats.
LANKS is the moniker of Australian songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Will Cuming. With a dynamic live show, LANKS plays with a two-piece band and will belt out tunes from his debut album ‘twentyseven’, which was released earlier this year.
Although drawing influences from artists such as MØ, Mura Masa, The xx, Justin Vernon and Radiohead, LANKS doesn’t imitate. His songs are adventurous and exploratory while still earworms – boasting strong hooks, melodies, and danceable beats.
LANKS has recently supported the likes of Glass Animals, Toro Y Moi, RUFUS and Ry X, and has played at Groovin’ the Moo and The Plot festivals.
