As far as bizarre sound experiments go, teaming an Australian indie-pop diva with a German house DJ is probably one of the kookiest I can think of. Happily, it turns out to be a match made in heaven as one listen to “My Head Is A Jungle” proves. Brisbane-based Emma Louise has been generating massive hype for a couple of years before finding commercial success at home with excellent debut album Vs Head Vs Heart.
The singer-songwriter’s gloomy, atmospheric tunes obviously caught the ear of Wankelmut (who scored a number one hit across Europe in 2012 with “One Day/Reckoning Song”) because the 24-year-old added a dance beat and turned the eerie love song into a club smash. After conquering Germany, the unlikely duo is ready to go international with their moody house anthem.
“My Head Is A Jungle” is being serviced to clubs around the globe and could well find love in the US given the current pro-EDM climate. Immerse yourself in their gloomy but danceable world after the jump.
