Review of 'Jungle' by Jungle
Two male singers, one of whom has mislaid his testicles and sings entirely in falsettos, the other of whom mutters a couple octaves beneath, harmonise together accompanied by some sweet and punchy 70s grooves and Disclosure-esque synth splashes. The result is a pretty fun debut album from this London-based funk group. Fun - but a little formulaic. The constant falsetto-muttering vocal harmonies, similar grooves and constant mid-tempo speed make for twelve pretty much identical tracks. On their own, they’re all pretty decent songs, that must be said, just not as a whole album.
