Jinja SafariJinja Safari are one of Australia’s most endearing and popular indie-pop bands. Following two successful records, the Sydney-based quintet is set to release an album later this year (it’s untitled at this moment). Their new single, “Find My Way”, is a summery, percussion-driven track that includes the cool sounds of Caribbean steel drums. If their approach sounds familiar, well, it might be as the band cites New York City’s Yeasayer as an influence (heck, Yeasayer remixed Jinja Safari’s “Plagiarist”).

Besides their infectious sound, Jinja Safari remain grounded, staying close to home as their careers have taken off. The video for “Find My Way” consists of footage from the band’s five years together. The video offers rare insight into a band’s progression. You can find it below.

Jinja Safari are Marcus Azon (lead vocals, guitar); Pepa Knight (sitar, keys, guitar, percussion, harmonium, lute, flute, indian garments, programming and production, vocals); Joe Engstrom (bass, vocals); Jacob Borg (drums); and Alister Roach (percussion, drums, vocals). Hear more of their music on SoundCloud.

No firm date on when Jinga Safari’s album drops. In the meantime, stream their new single and 22 other songs on the June 12th edition of The Weekend Showcase, a weekly playlist featuring new music from around the world.
