Biography


Jungle are an English modern soul musical collective based in London.

Jungle was founded by Tom McFarland and Josh Lloyd-Watson. The pair had been friends since they were nine years old, where they lived next door to each other in Shepherds Bush, London. They both attended Latymer Upper School, and played together within a number of different groups, one of which, Born Blonde, saw some success. They went on to form Jungle at the beginning of 2013, choosing to put an aesthetic emphasis on the music’s surrounding artwork and videos, and not on the pairs’ own identity, (McFarland and Lloyd-Watson came to be known as J and T). Throughout the following year Jungle developed its nature as a collective by working with different artists across diverse disciplines. To perform the music live, Jungle expanded to a seven-piece band, fronted by J and T. The pair wished to challenge themselves, resisting the temptation to simply re-produce their music from their laptops, and instead translated their songs into a full and organic live experience. J and T have explained that Jungle stemmed from a desire for ‘honesty… true connection and friendship. It’s about being in a collective and collective energy… team spirit’.

Jungle’s musical style has been described as “midtempo 1970s-style funk” and their music is intermixed with “tropical percussion, wildlife noises, falsetto yelps, psychedelic washes and badoinking bass”. The band has a fearsome live reputation: “Jungle are a spectacular live band,” say DIY.

They released their single « The Heat » in October 2013. In December 2013 Jungle were nominated for BBC’s Sound of 2014 prize.Their debut album Jungle was released in July 2014. To celebrate the release the band played a special launch party on a Peckham rooftop. The show was filmed using drones. The album “Jungle” was shortlisted for the 2014 Mercury Prize in September 2014.

In May 2018, they released two new singles, « House in L.A. », and « Happy Man ».

Nimble as a crocodile in a city sewer, the Jungle collective has made its way to the peaks of urban mythology, with immaculate sneakers and three gold stripes. Less than two years after the band was founded in London, everyone is already humming the funky tune of « Busy Earnin’ » and skipping to the beat of « The Heat », magnetic hit songs between sexy soul music and inflammatory funk, alongside ten other nuggets of an eponymous album claiming to be the standard for today’s hottest music. A breeding ground for ultra-modern energies, a mix between an analogical big band and a crew of stunning dancers, Jungle reminds us that concerts can be sweaty, and intends to plant its very appropriate tropical vibes in the very midst of the luxuriance of this Rock en Seine edition.

Jungle are based around a core musical duo of lifelong friends known simply as ‘J’ and ‘T’, who make mesmeric, kaleidoscopic modern soul that’s born in the UK but has true global appeal.
Their music video « Platoon » wan in 2013 the number of views on the cyber world.
