Jagaara are sisters Jane (Vocal’s/Guitar), Cat (Keys/Synth) and Ruth (Guitar) who grew up in North London listening to everything from Radiohead & Led Zeppelin through to Kate Bush and more recently artists such as Blood Orange, Bon Iver, and Lykke Li. They started both singing and playing from a young age that culminated in them writing songs together from their late-teens.
From those early days, the sisters began incorporating a mix of folk, rock and electronica into their songs and Ruth put together a small studio set up in their bedroom where they recorded some early demos. By then, their eclectic set of influences also included a array of atmospheric film scores, and Jagaara continued to experiment until they felt like they’d captured the essence of their unique sound; soaring hypnotic vocals, giving way to beautifully arranged, atmospheric instrumentation.
In 2014 Jagaara joined forces with Catherine (CJ) Marks (Howling Bells, Wolf Alice, Foals) to record their debut EP ‘Faultline’, slated for release later this year. An experience that gave the band further inspiration to continue their sonic evolution.
Jane’s incredibly powerful vocals resonate throughout the bands live set, supported by Cat and Ruth’s close harmonies. And having played a handful of early summer shows in their hometown’s most notorious music venues, the buzz of this three piece echoed through the industry and they were swiftly invited to play Latitude Festival. Jagaara’s short set played to a packed out tent at the festival and they can next be seen at many upcoming shows including a short Eat Your Own Ears residency at London’s The Waiting Room.
