Jungal are three powerful young women who create their own brand of Australian-flavoured indie rootsrock music. Their energetic live performance and powerful 60s-like rock feel comes to life through three harmonious voices creating the unique and powerful ‘Jungal sound’, setting these girls apart from other female acts of their kind. Their musical flair is flaunted as each song is varied in sound and style, but all are underlain with the organic roots of Jungal– powerful, unique and female.
[The girls of Jungal] work so well together; their voices and harmonies…It’s one of those things that’s just meant to be.” (Hannah of Little Fish, JOY FM)
THE SISTER CONNECTION
The underlying tie that binds Leisha Jungalwalla (guitars), Jessie Jungalwalla (drums), and Victoria Beard (bass) together is the unbreakable sister connection, which can be seen through the more than occasional cheeky grin during a performance, and felt throughout their music. When a band is clearly having a goodtime together, the audience feels it too. Sisters Leisha and Jessie began playing music together in their teens and quickly added adopted sister Victoria Beard’s sounds into the mix in 2007.
"Three girls. Three genres. A really large amount of
awesomeness." (Paige X Cho, Beat Magazine, Valleyarm)
Early 2010 saw the sell out launch of Jungal’s debut studio album, ‘This Crooked Track’, produced by Robyn Mai (John Butler Trio, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds) at Woodstock Studios, followed by successful tours across Canada and East Coast Australia. Their politically- charged single ‘Say It’ received ample radio play on Triple J, Triple RRR, and PBS, among others. National media attention was also received byInpress (This Crooked Track named album of the year in Inpress writers poll) , Scene Magazine and a front cover spot on Southern Star. Since then, Jungal have toured Australia extensively with local and international artists, released a live recording (Live at NSC) and have returned to Canada four times for a string of festival headliner spots.
Their latest release ‘Leave My Head’, recorded at The Aviary in Melbourne, with Fraser Montgomery stepping up as co-producer, explores a darker side of Jungal and exposes their exploration heavier sounds, and rock and roll story telling.
