New York City, New York, USA

Jangula got an undeniably catchy sound, backed by ace bass lines that are complemented by the saccharine sound of a Q-Chord. They seem to have an innate understanding of what makes good pop.


The term “Jangula” cannot be found in any known dictionary, yet it has come to embody the very essence and definition of the band, and thus come to be known as synonymous to “stylish, decadent, exciting,” as well as a name familiar to New York’s indie music scene.

The Brooklyn-based band consists of Johnny Campagna (vox/QChord), Daniel Bachrach (guitar/vox), Cody Gordon (bass), and Barak Kemeny (drums). The quartet has built up a loyal following of fans from wild warehouse parties and undeniably catchy songs. China Shop Mag put it best when they described Jangula’s sound as “if the Beach Boys took acid (duh, but wait for it), left the beach and went on a long, epic mountain journey into the Himalayas, picked up a man in a donkey mask and returned, victorious.”

Their forthcoming EP Strange Child can be streamed/downloaded here: http://soundcloud.com/jangulanyc/sets/strange-child. The five-track album is sweet and short, embellished with lush layers of Qchords and jangly guitars, taking you on a journey to the Shangri-La of 1937’s Lost Horizon, filled with imagery of utopia and exotic lands. Release date: March 23rd, 2012.
