News Liverpool Sound City: Jagwar Ma: ‘I Always Have A Good Time In Liverpool!’
Gabriel Winterfield from the Aussie band explains how they’re testing new ideas at Sound City.
Smack bang in the middle of their “Coachella sandwich”, Jagwar Ma are set to make a triumphant return to the UK this year, with Liverpool Sound City being one of their ports of call.
“Just a few weeks ago we played Chile, Argentina, Columbia and Brasil,” explains Gabriel Winterfield, from somewhere in San Francisco. “It was amazing, I’d never spent any time in South America, let alone performed there. Great people, great vibe, amazing food.”
The band have also begun to see that their debut album ‘Howlin” – which was released last summer - has begun to take affect on the crowds. “I’m noticing that people are singing the lyrics more accurately!” he laughs, “Having said that we change our songs when we perform live as well so it’s not too predictable.”
As for their return to the UK this month, the Australian trio are hard at work on creating a more immersive experience for their fans. “We’ve been working closely on the visual element of the show, to make the live performance a well-rounded sensual experience, and adding elements to the songs, even testing new ideas.”
That’s something that’s set to feed into their LSC appearance, too, as he touches on what to expect. “All of the above! I always have a good time in Liverpool.”
Jagwar Ma play the DIY Stage, Duke Street Garage at Liverpool Sound City, 10.30pm.
