Sleep Never’s Interview with Jaguar Love

If you haven’t heard of them already, Jaguar Love is the latest project from ex-”Bloody Brothers” members Johnny Whitney and Cody Votolato and “Pretty Girls Make Graves” multi-instrumentalist J. Clark.

Their new(ish) album “Take Me To The Sea” is proof that they’ve grown up without growing tired. They’ve written songs you can sing along to and hold on to, but still packed them with enough sick time shifts, screams, off-kilter riffs and fills to never let you forget where they came from.

Here’s 3:44 with Cody.
