Jungle – ‘For Ever’
When Jungle released their debut album back in 2014, tracks like ‘Busy Earnin’ and ‘Time’ became a regular feature on our playlist. Their glossy spin on 70s funk and soul certainly felt way more honest and authentic than one might expect from a band formed by two white boys from Shepherds Bush.
Having built an extraordinary reputation for their live performances and a nomination for a Mercury Prize along the way, the band seemingly dropped out of sight until news emerged of their second album, ‘For Ever’. Tracks already released like ‘Heavy, California’ and ‘Happy Man‘ point to more of the same high-quality grooves with perhaps a somewhat darker, more cinematic edge. Forget D-listers in ‘I’m A Celebrity’ this Autumn – this is a Jungle, we suggest, that’s going to be much more fun to revisit.
‘For Ever’ is released on the 14th September 2018
