The Jaguar Club - Sleepwalking

The Jaguar Club of NYC

The Jaguar Club is a trio residing in Brooklyn NY who formed shortly before New Years Eve 2006. The band has released 2 EP's of danceable pop tunes and played shows up and down the Eastern seaboard from Maine to Florida. At home they have been thrilled to play with some very fine bands including: The Duke Spirit, The Cinematics, Scissors For Lefty, Mobius Band, Pela, Bear Hands, The Shaky Hands, Love Of Diagrams and many more.
2008 primarily found the band in a barn in upstate New York writing and recording their first full-length album at Marcata Recording with Kevin McMahon (French Kicks, The Walkmen, Titus Andronicus, DieDieDie, Frightened Rabbit). The album is being mixed at the time of writing and the sounds it captures show the band breaking free of what had become their signature New Wave influenced sound, while keeping their signature energy and intensity intact. The album's 13 tracks are full of varied dynamics, new sounds and ideas, and is both heavier and softer than anything they have done before. With the album almost in the can, The Jaguar Club are thrilled for the future and are looking forward to finally getting back on the road after a year off. The limitless possibility and freedom of studio work has allowed the band to truly find their voice with the new album, but in the end the boys in the band still love putting on a good show more than anything - with energy, and sweat, unmatched by many of their contemporaries.
