Biography

Juwana is a 4 piece rock band from Bunbury, Western Australia. Our stage performances are exciting with a dynamic and powerful live sound that has people wanting more.

Inspired by the incredible song writing talents of bands including Blink 182, RHCP, The Killers and U2, with their epic song’s motivating us to pick up a guitar and write music. We want to share the music we create in the hope that we may have the same effect on others.

We are four over excited punks, who grew up in the same hood with a love for similar music. Formed in 2010 we rapidly developed as a band playing many shows throughout Perth and the South West of Western Australia. Juwana has quickly built a large fan base, gaining a reputation for delivering an entertaining performance of upbeat, catchy songs.

Juwana recorded its debut EP in 2011, and with its early release gained selection to play at the Groovin The Moo Festival in 2011. This was followed by a headline tour throughout WA in late 2011 to promote the release of our debut EP. Recently we have spent time playing many shows and recording a music video for the song Get Amongst It.

Excited by what we have achieved, and wanting more, we are looking forward to getting back into the studio early in 2012 to record our second EP, with a new collection of songs that we feel are our best creations yet.

The excitement of a live crowd drives us to pick up a guitar, continue to write songs and explore new ideas. We feel with our passion and dedication, we will create notable music and perform memorable live performances, taking Juwana to the next level!

We are Juwana!

Lyrics

No Longer

Written By: Juwana

Echoes of the footsteps, sweaty palms and fingertips
Something is closing in on you, and you can’t seem to turn around
Fine line between tough and dumb, when your backs up against the wall
Whats right and what is wrong, gotta turn around and make a call

No Longer can I run
No Longer can I hide
Stand up and fight back
Don’t break me down inside

Did I bring this on myself, this feeling of insanity?
Am I that different to everyone, don’t force it upon me
Confusion sets in, reluctance and mis-belief
I don’t like the things you do, conforming to reality

No Longer can I run
No Longer can I hide
Stand up and fight back
Don’t break me down inside

Slow Down

Written By: Juwana

Don’t feel the pressure, it’s not on you
Don’t feel acceptance, of what can you do
It’s hard to fall out, of something you just fell into
So hard to fall out, it’s time to take things

SLOW down, hearts will open in time
There’s no need to rush (SLOW DOWN)
Time is on your side
Singing la da dah da

Your bodies filled with tension, its crashing down too soon
Pushing hard against it, choices without a clue
It’s hard to fall out, of something you just fell into
So hard to fall out, it’s time to take things

SLOW down, hearts will open in time
There’s no need to rush (SLOW DOWN)
Time is on your side
Singing la da dah da
SLOW down, hearts will open in time
There’s no need to rush (SLOW DOWN)
Time is on your side
Hold on to your life

The Need

Written By: Juwana

Before the end I couldn’t read the hand for sure
Time moves on and were left wanting more
Nothing will be the same again, after this day
Pushing and pulling leading me a different way

But it all happily came crashing down
And no one could help you there’s no one around

I don’t need you, to comfort me
Roaming around, eternity
Searching for the answers, that can’t be told
I can feel the pain around you, you can’t let go
I don’t need you

How can I forget the times we’ve had
Watched the world collapse as we stood right back
Moving on we battled through to see another day
Finding out in front of you, disappointment anyway

But it came crashing down
And no one could help you there’s no one around

I don’t need you, to comfort me
Roaming around, eternity
Searching for the answers, that can’t be told
I can feel the pain around you, you can’t let go
I don’t need you
