Jangle, the new single from indie-pop explosion Gemini Downs, is full of energy, sweetness and truth.

Since bursting onto the music scene, Gemini Downs have gained a reputation for fun-filled live shows with everything from home-made instruments to tap dancing percussion.

The seven-piece are set to get even quirkier with the launch their new single ‘Jangle’, the video for which features wild car scenes, fairy floss, a flash mob and a dancing donkey. It’s certainly one heck of a party!

The single is now for free download nationally on Triple J Unearthed.

“We wanted to make sure everyone could share in the fun, so we’re putting it out there for free. We would love it if our fans could jump online, download it, and rate it,” singer and guitarist Jessica Braithwaite said.

‘Jangle’ was produced with former head of Sony Music Australia, Wayne Ringrow, at Chapel Lane Studios.

“We were really excited with the big pop sound we created, so we thought it was only right to create an equally as big and bright video clip to go with it,” Ms Braithwaite said.

“We invited our friends and fans to join in a series of dance lessons, and Adelaide choreographer David Placentino put together a really funky routine. Even those of us with two left feet managed to pull it off.”

Staff at Thebarton’s Southwark Hotel let Gemini Downs take over their venue for filming, while Jessica, an Entertainment Reporter at Network Ten, rallied her colleagues to film and direct the clip.

“Everyone just pitched in. The shoot involved about 60 people who all kindly volunteered their time and expertise; although, they did get to eat the free fairy floss!” Ms Braithwaite said.

Given the band’s reputation for getting parties started, it’s only fitting that the film clip will be launched at an actual birthday party.

Gemini Downs were asked to play at a party for a local bloke named Frank, and after hearing that no one came to his last birthday party, the band decided to get on board. The best bit is – it’s open invite!

The launch party will be at Jive in Adelaide on December 7.  A magician, comedian, circus performers and local dream pop act Swimming are all joining in on the fun. Yes folks, this is one party you don’t want to miss!

Gemini Downs shot onto the music scene in 2010, when their debut single ‘From Darwin’ topped Triple J’s Unearthed chart and made headlines nationally. This new project has been two years in the making, and is anticipated to create an even bigger stir.
