hmv tips for 2014… Jungle
Every day throughout January we're going to be introducing you to a new act who we think are going to everywhere in 2014. Today it's the supremely mysterious Jungle…
Who Are They?
They are a duo, they are from London, and yeah, that's about all anybody knows. They're incredibly enigmatic, they're in none of their own promo shots and their shows are so dimly lit it's to make out any of their faces at all. They won't be able to get away with that at festivals mind…
Who Do They Sound Like?
Imagine Disclosure if they'd grown up listening to post-punk and deep house rather than Ibiza club bangers. All Jungle's track are rooted in tribal rhythms and intense grooves, which build to lilting bridges. They're quite reminiscent of early DJ Shadow and there's more than a hint of a young Massive Attack in there.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Each of the tracks they've released so far has been outstanding and, with the added intrigue they've already created with their enigmatic behaviour thus far is all to the good. You'll want to follow this band and see how they grow.
Can I Hear Something?
Yes, yes you may. Below you can wrap your ears around their recent single 'The Heat', which is also available to buy here. They're on tour early in the New Year supporting Haim and playing a few headline shows.
