Biography

This is first and foremost a story of friendship that almost sounds like a fairy tale: two lads who have known each other for a decade gain a love of music and cannot imagine not sharing this passion that has taken them over body and soul. And so Jungle was born, a project created by Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland that has been setting virtually the entire planet’s toes tapping since 2013. Sketching out effusive soul and funk across three albums brimming with sensuality, these two boys – and their five onstage sidekicks – offer a general euphoria that unravels the moral of one of La Fontaine’s most famous fables: ‘Well, it’s always time to dance!’. And there’s no way we’re missing out.
