Jungle [SOLD OUT]


Event details

Jungle with special guests. Presented by Secret Sounds. Live in The Gershwin Room, Hotel Esplanade SATURDAY 27TH APRIL @ 8:00PM ~ SET TIMES ~ DJ 8.00pm GEORGIA 9.30pm JUNGLE 10.30pm In a celebration of one of Melbourne’s most iconic music venues, Jungle will bring their sun-drenched sounds to The Espy in their most intimate Victoria show to date. 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. This is an 18+ event.
