With their new American tour starting tomorrow, Jaguanera is about to support what is, in my opinion, one of the contenders of our “Best Indie Albums of 2016” with “Head To Tail”. Jaguanera has the uncanny knack of taking their music to such a high and polished level with layer upon layer of sonic goodness tempered with straightforward melody and outright intrigue that the listener simply can’t turn away. “Head To Tail” is literally a great novel for the ears.
“Head To Tail” is out now via Seahorse Recordings.

Head to tail – New album
The new album “Head to tail” is provided in spring 2016. It’s a new conception of Jaguanera’s sound, it’s so different compared with the first album “Runners”.
11 new tracks are the results of a deep experimentation with synthesizers and electronic music, but they don’t forget pop rock Jaguanera’s roots.
The band takes its inspiration too, by a mix of Joy Division, Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails sound, extracting the “juice of the dark and sublimeness of melody” belonged in those artists. This is the Jaguanera’s new wave sound.
