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.
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.
