Malaysian indie trio Jumero are well-known in the local and
regional scene for their catchy yet soulful music, so it is with open arms we
welcome the guys back with some new stuff!

That new material in question comes in the form of a brand
new single called “Growing Cold“, but let us tell you, there is
nothing ‘cold’ about how the dreamy track sounds.

Jared Lim (vocalist and guitarist), Michael Lim (bassist and
back-up vocalist) and Ryan Gomes (drummer and back-up vocalist) who make up
Jumero, shared that there wasn’t really a defining moment in coming up with the
song:

“Jared basically brings the songs to the band at a very
raw, infant state. We then polish it up and arrange it with attacks and
harmonies to the best of our ability. If it sounds “good” enough, we decide to
adopt it as a Jumero song.”

Having performed the song at many shows before it was
finally released officially last week, the band describes the song as a contemporarily
meaningful one that reflects the trials and tribulations of human tendencies.

“It’s about dealing with our natural human tendency to
want to hide or take the easy escape route. We all battle with negative
thoughts and struggles. Whether its depression, an addiction, or the fear of
what people might think. The truth is that it’ll always be there to some degree
or another. Sometimes we win sometimes we don’t. Let’s face it, it’s part of
life, but it doesn’t have to shape our life. We all have a bold lion within us
that is capable of facing the fire that life throws our way.”

“We can overcome fear, and not let it mould and shape
us. Even more importantly, to make sure it does not cause us to grow cold to the passion that drives
you.”

We at TheHive.Asia took a listen to the track and here’s
what we think: Surrounded with the urgency of vigorous guitar riffs and
harmonious vocals that build up to the inspiring chorus, we hope “Growing
Cold” makes it big on the airwaves and local music charts.

But don’t just take our word for it. Listen to “Growing
Cold” on music streaming sites like iTunes, Spotify, Deezer and Joox, now!

Meanwhile, the band revealed that they’ve started recording
their second album at Sonicsoul Productions (under producer Ananth Kumar) and
hope that it’ll be released by the first quarter of 2019. So, look out for
that!

PS – If you want to catch JUMERO live in the act soon, then this 19th
of December head on over to The Gaslight Cafe, where the band will share the
stage alongside another local band, Battle Bloom for a night filled with great
music.
