Jaguar Jonze: “If We Want To Set The Place On Fire, Don’t Bring Extinguishers.”

Jaguar Jonze burst on Australia Decides 2020 with ‘Rabbit Hole’, a song written about her journey with PTSD. Her profile then skyrocketed, having gigs cancelled due to the pandemic and becoming an advocate for the #MeToo movement, all the while creating and releasing conceptually brilliant art and music projects.

It’s not lost on us how precious sitting down with Deena Lynch (Jaguar Jonze is a moniker) is. Ahead of Australia Decides 2022, ESC Bubble’s Cain asks her about new track ‘Little Fires’ and all the things she’s yet to set ablaze:

“I feel like artists are pressured to maintain this perception of glamour and glitz, and rock ‘n’ roll, and the truth is it’s been a really difficult time for artists in the last two years. My opportunity here is to say thank you to everyone who has supported me–financially, emotionally, physically–in so many ways. I want to take that moment and say thank you because I am also still human.”

Jaguar Jonze is an artist who fosters a close connection with the Eurovision community, and her performance of ‘Little Fires’ will be a physical and emotional release come Saturday’s live final. So, don’t bring your fire extinguisher.

Does she have what it takes, this second time around, to take her blaze of reckoning to Turin. You decide.
