Where the California Dream collides with the sound of London, find the neo-soul musical collective whose 2014 album was nominated for a Mercury Prize.
Featuring singles ‘Platoon’, ‘Busy Earnin’’, ‘Time’, ‘The Heat’ and ‘Julia’, their self-titled debut evoked escapism, with an unmistakable sound and a vivid, visual world.
The whole thing was dreamed up by Josh ‘J’ Lloyd-Watson and Tom ‘T’ McFarland, a production and multi-instrumentalist duo who became the core of a talent-filled seven-strong collective.
Jungle now have under their belt songs of the summer (two summers, even), viral videos, half a million sales and rave reviews (including from Noel Gallagher).
If Jungle’s first album was their imaginary soundtrack to the places they had never been, 2018’s second album For Ever was inspired by real-life experiences of the places they’d dreamed of for so long.
