Hailing from Brisbane, Australia, the project stems from the mind of Deena Lynch (Queensland Music Award’s Most Promising Female Songwriter 2016). With the help of a band behind her, Jonze chisels a dark and dynamic soundscape without compromising her dulcet voice that transmits raw, intense emotion.
Jonze has spent the last 2 years between bunkering in a basement of Brisbane and a studio in the concrete jungle of Jakarta to harness a body of work that is nostalgic yet distinctive. From here comes Jonze’s debut single ‘You Got Left Behind’ – a driving, upbeat song suspended delicately above a breathtakingly haunting undercurrent.
Her first steps include showcases across Music Matters in Singapore, a single release party at The Foundry in hometown Brisbane and International Indie Music Festival for Pekan Raya in Jakarta, Indonesia.
An enigmatic yet vulnerable songwriter, Jaguar Jonze delivers defiant ferocity through smoky vocals that shift between fragile and forceful and a mature musicality that provides sweetness through dissonance.
