Jagwar Twin has an impressive knack for delivering songs that stick in your brain after the first listen. His 2023 hit song, “Bad Feeling (Oompa Loompa)” perfectly showcases his ability to crawl into your ear and stay there. It is no surprise the song is turning heads. It has a fascinating cadence of melody, bathed over an intricate and strange production. The track has landed all across the Billboard charts, including Hot Alternative Songs and Hot Rock & Alternative Songs. It also swept across the internet in a viral fashion.

Bad Feeling (Oompa Loompa)” samples the catchiest and most notable part of the Oompa Loompa song used in the 1971 film, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. However, Jagwar Twin puts his own spin on the famous tune, adding haunting elements in his lyricism and vocal delivery. The thumping, whistling sounds in the instrumentation feel almost circus-like, nodding to the likes of a theme song for a spooky movie.

When the production is stripped back, we are left with nothing but Jagwar Twin‘s beautiful vocals and two guitars. The song still stands strong. It proves the ghostly production isn’t necessarily what makes the song, it is Jagwar Twin, himself. His passion and emotion encompass the eerie feeling from the studio version. This acoustic performance will leave viewers and listeners in awe. He captivates his audience no matter what the setting.

Jagwar Twin stopped by the idobi Radio studio to perform “Bad Feeling (Oompa Loompa)” live, and you will not be disappointed. Watch the full performance below.
