Celebrating today’s launch of their debut album Welcome To The Jungle, Neon Jungle are set to perform an acoustic set and album signing at HMV Manchester on Tuesday 29th July at 5pm.
It’s been quite a whirlwind for the four Neon Jungle members – Jess (21), Amira (18), Shereen (17) and Asami (18), as less than eighteen months after meeting at auditions they have seen their outstanding dance track Braveheart storm the charts, signed up with model agency Storm, been confirmed for festivals including T In The Park, V Festival and Isle of Wight, inked a deal with RCA Records in America and been whisked off at a moments notice to perform at the legendary Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show – oh and between all that recorded and now released their debut album.
The release of Welcome To The Jungle, follows the release, last week, of their fourth single Louder which marked a new direction for the band – gone were the pop hooks and driving dance beat, and in their place a powerful, raw, emotive and soulful atmospheric ballad. The band said: “Lyrically it’s very relatable, it’s about drowning out feelings and emotions. It’s about not being in control of the way you feel because of someone else and wanting to turn everything up louder to escape that. I think people expected our fourth single to be another dance track but it was always in our plans to release a slower song and surprise people. It’s still got the energy and power but in a more subtle way.”
As you’d expect from Neon Jungle, Welcome To The Jungle is filled with energy, raw power, determination and fierce attitude, creating infections pop and dance tracks, but there is also plenty of contrast with high energy dance making way for softer beautifully balanced pieces such as Fool Me and a stunning cover of the Banks song Waiting Game, a strong, deep, atmospheric delight.
Neon Jungle will be signing copies of their debut album Welcome To The Jungle and performing an acoustic set at HMV Manchester (Arndale Centre) on Tuesday 29th July at 5pm.
