Chase The Jaguar with their new single 'Never Let You Down' - a band of brothers
with ethereal voice recently signed by Samantha Gibb's M.E.G. Records

So sorry the site has been dormant for so long due partly to health issues.  It was at the beginning of the year that Samantha Gibb wrote to us excitedely and proudly, " Lazaro and I actually just signed a new band called Chase the Jaguar to our label and will be starting their campaign for the release of there first EP this June. I'm actually singing on some of the tracks as well which was a lot of fun."

So here's the official video for Chase The Jaguar's new single 'Never Let You Down.'  The video shot by the M.E.G. people in Miami has a strange charm with sweeping views of deserted streets.  Samantha admits that the fact that they are a brotherly duo could be another enthralling factor for the fans of Gibb music!

Here's the Amazon.jp link where the Never Let You Down single can be purchased for 240 yen.

 "Never Let You Down"
Please don’t try that’s not your way
Just leave me to myself at the end of every day
And pretend that I’m OK
Just pretend that we’re OK

Please don’t search for my tears
Just look the other way like you done for all these years
And pretend that I’m OK
Just pretend that we’re OK

That way I won’t let you down
That way I could never let you down

Please don’t try that’s not your way
Just leave me to myself at the end of every day
And pretend that I’m OK

That way I won’t let you down
That way I could never let you down

Please don’t try that’s not your way
Just let me to myself at the end of every day
And pretend that I’m OK
Just pretend that we’re OK

That way I won’t let you down
That way I could never let you down
That way I won’t let you down?
That way I could never let you down
 

When I first heard the title, I thought it could be a lover making a happy promise to his loved one that he would never let her down.  But...this has turned out to be such a lonely, lonely song, which suits David's どうethereal voice well.

Here's an excerpt from the exchange we had with Samantha about this haunting song.

BGD: Could you tell me how you found them and what is the most fascinating quality of their music for you?
Samantha: Laz and I have known the boys since we were young. They are great friends and we have even played together in the past.
What I love most about their music is that they are able to express depth in simplicity. David's vocals can be direct and still haunting at the same time. It's some really beautiful stuff. I'm excited for everyone to hear more and hear the diversity to their music.The songs just keep getting better!
BGD:  Is it going to be a digital release? Or will there be a physical EP?
Samantha: "Never Let You Down" was released on iTunes, Spotify, ect.. this past Monday (February 11, 2019) and we will be releasing more songs all the way up to there EP release at the end of May which will have a bonus track. We are in the works for a physical EP: )

And here is the Chase The Jaguar bio:

Chase The Jaguar “Never Let You Down”
Brothers David and Sebastian Fox were exposed to music at a young age by their father. A traveling musician who gave them their first taste of guitar, he wrote protest songs in his native Argentina and instilled in them a love of a myriad of musical styles. The brothers are trained, touring classical guitarists, playing small theaters across Europe, even sharing the stage with Pavarotti. Chase The Jaguar is all about their other love: stripped-down, catchy indie rock.
"Never Let You Down” is Chase The Jaguar’s first M.E.G. Records single, in conjunction with Florida’s Neurodisc Records, off an upcoming album they are continually in the process of writing. M.E.G. gets its name from the initials of the rock icon Maurice Earnest Gibb, who needs no further introduction. The folks at M.E.G., a label born of the legendary Brothers Gibb, heard what the Brothers Fox could do, and they immediately partnered up. Here David sings with an ethereal world-weariness, insisting that as long as his concerned loved one keeps up the façade that everything’s just fine, and asks nothing of him, he promises he won’t disappoint them.
The lyrics’ isolation is given the perfect visual backdrop by director Lazaro Rodriguez – a city of millions, deserted at the loneliest hours of the night. The band set out across Miami at 3 AM, roaming the empty streets till they found a spot that fit the track’s moodiness. From there, they took a shoot-first-figure-it-out-later approach, grabbing footage on the go and sneaking onto rooftops.
The “Never Let You Down” video was born of Chase The Jaguar’s DIY ethic. Rather than endlessly overthink a treatment, wrangle equipment and wait for someone else to make the video a reality, they stayed true to the simplicity of the song. It’s David’s voice out there almost on its own, with some atmospheric guitars, a pulsing bare-bones beat, and layered, dream-state backing vocals. It’s a natural and entrancing evolution of the chiming, driving rock of their self-titled debut EP. The song is a re-working of a Michael Baker original, which the band made their own by tweaking the arrangement and key.
Aside from playing to fans locally, they’ve already brought their sound to Argentina and Cuba. Festival dates are being worked out nationally and across Europe as the band hammer out their first full-length. Chase The Jaguar got its name from one of the band’s driving principles: never stop going after what means the most to you, no matter how elusive or out of reach it seems.

We really appreciate and support the efforts of Samantha and her cousins, friends, and colleagues to carry on the legacy.  Please don't turn out the light, everyone.
