Indie-pop sensation The Jungle Giants hit up Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Friday night, delivering an electrifying performance of indie-techno-synth-pop brilliance. The Brisbane four-piece were joined by Heaps Good Friends and Lastlings on the fourth show of their ‘Quiet Ferocity’ Tour. The band sent the audience of teenagers and young adults into a frenzy, who recited every song and danced throughout the entire night. Fans were truly in for a treat.

First up, Adelaide duo ‘Lastlings’ hyped the crowd with an upbeat, high-energy performance. Singer Emma Fradd’s Dreamy vocals combined with a stunning light show set off the young audience, who swayed and bounced around to the music. The pure happiness and energy radiating off the band members was infectious. Surprisingly, the Enmore Theatre was packed early on during the evening, with Heaps Good Friends performing to a near full mosh pit of excited teenagers. Next Lastlings took the stage, captivating the crowd with a dreamy, hypnotic fusion of music and lights. Lead singer Amy Dowdle’s incredible vocal tone and stage presence was spectacular to watch. The club-like vibe of electronic indie pop was a perfect warm up for the highly anticipated main act.

By the time The Jungle Giants finally graced the stage, the restless crowd was roaring in anticipation. The band combined an incredible light display with a high energy, electrifying set. Kicking off with She’s a Riot, members of the audience we’re already stacked on each other’s shoulders and crowd surfing. You’ve Got Something, Used to be Mine, and Kooky Eyes proved to be highlights of the night, with bright guitar riffs and upbeat vocals. The crowd was hanging off lead singer Sam Hales’ every word. With the release of the new album Quiet Ferocity’, the band has created a new “genre-bending universe”, embarking on a stylistic musical evolution. This was truly explored in their concert with an experimental four-minute electronic rave, paired with mesmerizing green lasers. It was hypnotizing. The contrast between cutesy indie tracks and alternate electronic bangers ensured there was never a dull moment the whole night.

It was a truly unforgettable performance, an amazing live show which fans of all ages enjoyed.
