In a celebration of one of Melbourne’s most iconic music venues, Jungle have today announced their most intimate Victorian show to date at St Kilda’s recently restored Hotel Esplanade, AKA The Espy.
The Espy’s music programming has gone from strength to strength since the venue’s reopening in November last year, with sell out shows from the likes of Ruby Fields, Lime Cordiale, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, and high energy punk outfit, The Chats.
Keeping true with the Espy of old, they have also hosted iconic Australian acts such as Cosmic Psychos, Tumbleweed, and Daryl Braithwaite.
Now, the UK-based group Jungle will bring their immune to categorisation, sun-drenched sounds to The Espy’s iconic Gershwin Room.
It’s been a long time coming for Jungle fans who have not seen the British outfit grace Australian shores since they hit up Splendour in the Grass way back in 2014.
The eagerly anticipated Antipodean tour was announced in the wake of the follow up to their self titled Mercury Prize nominated debut record, which featured binge worthy tracks such as Busy Earnin’ and The Heat.
Titled For Ever the new album describes the band’s Californian Dream and the reality check of actually living it – the feeling of being adrift on the West Coast compounded by the collapse of long-term relationships.
The silver lining for Josh “J” Lloyd-Watson and Tom “T” McFarland (the duo who dreamt up Jungle’s inimitable sound) is what they lost in love, they gained in music with future hits House In LA and Happy Man.
For Ever is deeper, more intimate, occasionally melancholic, but still abundant with feel good beats from the gurus of neon soul.
With a strong synth game, powerful vocals and intimate hooks, tickets to Jungle’s Gershwin Room show are strictly limited.
