Jagwar Twin, known for his distinctive musical style that blends nostalgia with fresh innovation, has unveiled his latest track, “Bad Feeling (Oompa Loompa).” The song, inspired by the classic film “Wonka,” features candy-coated harmonies and whimsical instrumentals, showcasing Jagwar Twin’s unique musical prowess.

The release of “Bad Feeling (Oompa Loompa)” coincides with the debut of Paul King’s “Wonka,” which includes an interpolation of the iconic “Oompa Loompa” song. Notably, this marks a rare approval from the original film’s composers for the reinterpretation. Jagwar Twin brings a new life and twist to the classic “Oompa Loompa” chorus while modernizing it for contemporary audiences.

Co-written by Sean Van Vleet (All Time Low, PVRIS) and Ryan Daly (Dove Cameron, John Legend), the track exemplifies the magic of modern visionaries reimagining timeless musical classics.

Reflecting on the single release, Jagwar Twin shares, “Every one of us holds a golden ticket in our hand, but our ability to receive the keys to the kingdom relies on our ability to trust ourselves and to tell the truth. ‘Bad Feeling’ is a chocolate-covered reminder to trust your gut.”

This latest release follows the style of Jagwar Twin’s recent hit, “Good Time (1:08),” which has climbed into the Top 20 on Mexico radio. With an impressive catalog boasting over 385 million streams and 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, Jagwar Twin continues to challenge the status quo of the alternative music scene.

Known for his genre-defying artistry, Jagwar Twin seamlessly blends rhythmic accordion hooks, melodic children’s choirs, and gritty breakbeats, accompanied by introspective and almost cryptic lyrics. His previous album, “33,” drew inspiration from the showmanship of Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie and Bad-era Michael Jackson, establishing Jagwar Twin as a dynamic force urging listeners to embrace authenticity and vulnerability.

As fans eagerly embrace “Bad Feeling (Oompa Loompa),” Jagwar Twin solidifies his position as a visionary artist reshaping the landscape of alternative music.
