I stumbled upon Jungle when a friend posted one of their videos on Facebook. A B-Girl dances her ass off to one of the most groovy and soulful songs I’ve heard recently. That was it. I was totally sold on a band that is proving to be one of the fastest rising acts in the UK, and that is with only an EP and a single to their name.
On July 15th, Jungle will release their debut album to a surprisingly large audience. The group is spreading like wildfire and deserves all the attention they are getting, so I highly suggest you pre-ordered the album now.
The day after I saw Jungle at The Echo, my calves hurt from dancing too much. If that kind of pain sounds appealing to you, they will be kicking off their first US headlining tour June 6th at El Rey Theatre and ending it at Chicago’s Lollapalooza. Don’t miss out on a great show and an amazing new band!
