A glorious synth-tinged melting pot of indie rock that will caress the eardrums. Formed in Leicester while still at school, they took their name from Linda Kasabian, one of the members of the Charles Manson cult. Their electronica-indie rock fusion akin to Primal Scream combined with the rough vocal style and unrepentant Mancunian swagger of Oasis has firmly established them as more than just a flash in the pan and injected a large dose of energy back into the Brit-rock scene.

Jagwar Ma emerged in 2012 with the captivating single 'Come Save Me'. Combining the earworm melodic sensibilities of '60s sunshine pop with a tightly euphoric modern electronic edge, the Sydney-based duo of Jono Ma and vocalist Gabriel Winterfield quickly sent ripples across the blogosphere and heralded the arrival of a fresh-faced dose of kaleidoscopic, danceable psychedelia.
