Ganglians are back after a rather quiet two years. Nevertheless though, they’ve come back in true style with an unusual yet uplifting number.
Jungle encapsulates various influential sounds. While sounding, in some respects, like it could fit in a Western movie, it also feels like it could slot quite easily into a busy Indian street market. It’s not quite as heavily Indian inspired as The Beatles’ The Inner Light, think more along the lines of Within You Without You and we’re getting there.
Some of you might not make the same comparisons but I think these unusual yet inticing elements make for a great song which show the band to be brave and willing to try anything. It’s uplifting to hear something like this.
Jungle is off their soon to be released double LP album, Still Living, which should be available from August 29 onwards. With its summery tones, this seems a perfect time to release it.
The Ganglians have a very distinct style which is refreshing. Jungle reminds me of long summer days driving through the English countryside (which seems ironic seeing as the song focuses on the jungle of the busy city life).
This is a fantastic song and I’m confident Still Living will live up to its expectations.
