Online anonymity frequently correlates with musical introversion and artistic comfort in subtlety. Soul-pop preciouses, Rhye, are one such quiet example. Not so in the case of the UK dance duo JUNGLE, however, who instead boogie and rave with celebratory self-confidence behind their misleading press photos and internet mystery.
‘Busy Earnin’’ is the group’s latest block party buster and their most assertive offering to date. It rattles, buzzes and klaxons alongside anthemic 1970s vocal jiving that seems as if sourced from a street full of raving soul singers. This crowded atmosphere, along with a passionate brass melody and steady crowd-claps, all culminate in a musical unity bigger and wilder than the duo themselves.
On the back of being listed one of BBC’s Sounds of 2014 and joining the venerable ranks of Vampire Weekend, King Krule and FKA Twigs since singing with XL Recordings, it is little wonder why JUNGLE are indeed busy earning.
