JAKARTA CRIERS ‘ Peking ’ through
Jakarta Criers are starting to turn heads in an almost dangerous manner, with the release of their first ever video clip ‘ Peking ’, the lead single off debut EP ‘Moonlife’. The clip can be viewed here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HDAMNtWMJE
“ Peking ” has been crawling in people’s eardrums and getting stuck in heads, appearing all over Triple J, being added to high rotation and featuring on the Triple J Unearthed Mix Tape. Now it’s time for the visual to be blurred into ones eyeballs.
Peking’s film clip was released this week, starring beautiful duo Ella Markovich and Liam Burke and featuring one undisclosed Brisbane city rooftop.
Brilliantly directed by Andrew MacDonald, Jakarta Criers debut film clip perfectly reflects the lyrical mood and musical feelings, allowing the content of both audio and visual to compliment each other.
The EP, Moonlife contains five infectious, dynamic and versatile tracks, brimming with sweet melodies, original guitar lines and lots of hooky goodness… Moonlife shows why Jakarta Criers have been receiving recognition far and wide, including recently receiving US College radio play. It is available via bandcamp – http://jakartacriers.bandcamp.com/
Having recently played with the likes of The Griswolds, Battleships and Oceanics it’s no wonder they took out the Valley Fiesta’s ‘Local Love Competition’. With over 100 entries and 2 weeks of tough judging and public voting Jakarta Criers were selected to receive the last spot of the Valley Fiesta lineup and playing the main stage at Brisbane ’s biggest street party. It will see the band play with a host of other bands including, Deep Sea Arcade , Flume, Violent Soho, The Medics and Arrested Development.
Jakarta Criers single ‘ Peking ‘ is now just as easy on the eyes as it is on the ears.
