"this is a full-on, full-tilt, multi-coloured, monster céilí boogie."
“Listening to ‘Translate’ is a breathless, euphoric, spiritual experience that gets into your head and immediately mainlines to the rest of your body.”
"it's an amazing album that immediately gets in your head & then
moves to everywhere else in your body"
"Jiggy have created one of the most adventurous, experimental and
imaginative Irish albums of 2017."
"Jiggy are a band who delved deep into their inspirations but also expand upon them, which can be hard to do. However, Jiggy move past this and deliver a truly enchanting introduction that speaks through sound."
