So for whatever reason they were pretending this lot were some kind of multicultural street collective when in reality they were just two lads from London. That's fine - everyone is two lads from London so you can't blame them for trying something different. The fact that they are hidden from view shouldn't put you off their fairly enjoyable disco pop. We've been pumping this thing out on the office stereo and the general consensus is that it fits in pretty nicely with the indie/dance hybrid good time bands like Metronomy, Passion Pit and the despairing Hot Chip with a few '70's disco chops thrown in.
Its fun stuff - you can almost taste Nile Rogers dreadlocks in some of the tracks and there's plenty of nods to Daft Punk's patchy but much loved 'Random Access Memories'. The vocals are generally squeaky, the arrangements tight and clipped and there are hooks a-plenty. Its reminding me plenty of Gnarls Barclay with a little bit of Empire of The Sun yacht shimmer thrown in.
XL don't usually sign duds so this will just do fine. I can even imagine myself boogieing to it.
9/10 Jillian Customer review, 6th February 2015
Here in Canada, it's difficult to stay warm in the winter.
I threw on this ultra groovy record, and what happened next totally blew my mind!
What I thought was a fake fireplace sparked a flame, perfectly roasted marshmallows rolled out, and somehow a glass of the finest red wine was in my hand.
A gorgeous *fake* bear skin rug appeared and begged to be relaxed upon.
With only my bullmastiff, Beauregard, to keep me company, we reclined and listened to the smooth, yet upbeat, tunes of these two lads from the UK.
Needless to say, I would definitely flip it over and listen to the other side. EVERYTIME.
Listening to vinyl on my circa 1983 Fisher Price record has required me to fend off some flack from "connoisseurs". However, Jungle's sweet tunes engulfed my living room and all was well in the world.
