Jungle are a brand new English soul and pop outfit hailing from London. Formed just after the break of 2010s, the group consist of songwriting musician duo J and T (aka Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland) alongside a string of talented and enthusiastic musicians.
Describing their sound as ‘midtempo 1970s-style funk’ and full of ‘tropical percussion, wildlife noises, falsetto yelps, psychedelic washes and badoinking bass’, the band would quickly find recognition across the UK, especially thanks to performances at Glastonbury and South by Sotuh West.
Signed to XL Recordings alongside names like Adele, Atoms for Peace, The xx, and MIA, their irresistible brand of soul is earning them fans across the world and even a spot in the BBC Sound of 2014, meaning they’re tipped to be one of the best.
In October and November 2014, following the release of their self-titled Top 10 debut album, the band headed out on tour of the UK, before playing bigger and bigger shows throughout the UK since.
Jungle returned in 2018 with a string of shows in spring. Now, they've announced their sophomore album 'For Ever' and accompanying world tour dates. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
