Description

Love Signs is The Jungle Giants’ first album in four years. That’s a long time in the music game, but for the Brisbane-bred crew if anything, their popularity has only swelled in recent years, developing into the kind of reliably popular act that regularly sells out tours and dazzles festival crowds.

Building from the exaggerated dial tone of a digital phone, the opening title track is a strong scene-setter. Its combo of vintage synths, spangly guitars, driving groove, and the sticky falsetto of frontman Sam Hales is an easy way to buy into what Love Signs is selling.

Injecting even more of the dance music DNA that was first spliced into their sound on Quiet FerocityLove Signs feels more like a natural evolution rather than the creative leaps made between the Jungle Giants’ first few albums But digging into the details reveals how much they’ve grown.

In particular, frontman Sam Hales has levelled up in his abilities as a producer and arranger as much as songwriter. In the studio, Jungle Giants albums have increasingly become his solo efforts, and after co-producing Quiet Ferocity, Hales decided to take the plunge by largely creating Love Signs entirely himself.  From a purely technical level, it’s hard to fault the construction and polish of this new material, but stylish as it is, it never takes itself too seriously either.
