The Jungle Giants
The Jungle Giants (formed in 2011) is an Australian indie rock/pop four-piece band. Comprised of high school friends Sam Hales, Cesira Aitken, Andrew Dooris, and Keelan Bijker, the band hails from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
Despite playing in opposing Brisbane-based indie rock bands during high school, by the time members were attending university The Jungle Giants had been born. Formed of lead singer and guitarist Sam Hales, lead guitarist Cesira Aitken, bassist Andrew Dooris, and drummer Keelan Bijker, the band generated a buzz soon after forming, playing a host of well-received shows across Australia. In order to fund their debut release a numbers of the band’s members worked two jobs, however the result was their self-titled EP released in March 2011. The EP’s lead single “Mr. Polite” took YouTube and Australian radio my storm, greatly increasing the band’s exposure. Soon after the release Jungle Giants signed with Create/Control and focused on touring nationally.
The band’s sophomore EP “She’s a Riot” was released on Create/Control in July 2012. The EP spawned the singles “She’s a Riot” and “You’ve Got Something” after which the band supported the Last Dinosaurs on their national tour. In 2013 the band toured with Two Door Cinema Club and the Vaccines before releasing the track “I Am What You Want Me To Be” in May 2013 ahead of their feature full-length. Jungle Giants’ debut studio album “Learn to Exist” was issued in August 2013 to favourable reviews from the critical press and a feature by national radio station Triple J. The album was supported by an extensive headlining tour, along with festival performances including Big Day Out and Groovin’ The Moo.
