“I thought a lot about why we tell stories, why every civilization had myths and tales that were told, and how those stories came to represent cultures,” says Roy English, the mastermind behind Jagwar Twin. , “how these stories have changed in a world that is increasingly digitally connected and yet less and less human. We are the stories we tell ourselves and share with the world. These stories ultimately shape the way we live and can add more meaning and purpose to be shared. I wanted to convey stories that are true to who I am and in many ways who I think we all are. May we all find the strength, the spirit and above all ourselves into each other. Reclaim your crown!
Empathy, community and creative expression collide with Jagwar Twin, the almost supernatural alter-ego of singer, songwriter, producer and storyteller Roy English. The songs are captivating and confessional in equal measure. Jagwar Twin provokes and inspires, adapting to rapidly changing culture with the speed and agility of the “big cat” of the Americas, the jaguar.
English dissolves the imaginary barriers between artist and audience. As the American songwriter observed, “Jagwar Twin’s sound is built around the individual expression of universal experience”.
That attitude and ethos inspires everything on Jagwar Twin’s ambitious second album, 33. Otherworldly garage-rock guitars, grimy breakbeats and lively poetry combine with electro-pop flourishes and soulful R&B. in a unique style that is largely “alternative” and definitely Jagwar Twin.
Jagwar Twin’s debut album Subject to Flooding arrived in 2018, produced by S1 (Kanye West, Beyoncé, Lorde) and Matthew Pauling (Twenty One Pilots, 5 Seconds Of Summer). The individualism anthem “Loser”, which premiered on The Zane Lowe Show, has generated over 17.4 million streams on Spotify. The sports sync icon “Long Time Coming” and “Shine” were equally transcendent, connecting with various listeners around the world.
The album is driven by songs like “Happy Face”, “It’s Your Time”, “Soul is a Star”, “Down to You” and “The Circle”. English channels the iconic showmanship of Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie and Bad-era Michael Jackson throughout the album.
