Colour of the Jungle are a five-piece rock band, whose captivating songwriting and raucous energy has been resonating with audiences from Munich to the South coast of England. Their catchy-but-emotional, approachable-yet-raw sound is built upon sexy bass-driven rhythms and edgy instrumentation, creating music that sticks in the head and the heart.
The group of five friends initially started jamming for fun before swiftly moving to the studio where they soon discovered their true potential and recorded their debut EP The Jungle Book. The four-track release perfectly captured the complex basslines of John Harris, confident drum beats of Dan Fiford, rhythmic riff and leads of Joe Costello and Brendan McVeagh, and intriguing lyrics of Jack Evans.
Their latest single ‘Steel Tray’ narrates pushing through tough times, when you feel the world is against you. Evans’ gritty vocals sing about the current status of societal issues and how life can often feel like you’re swimming upstream. Strutting with confidence, the single features jangly guitars and stomping percussion, all underpinned by an infectious and sun-soaked melody.
Inspired by iconic rock and roll greats such as Kings of Leon, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and The Growlers, Colour of the Jungle are sculpting their own identity of modern garage rock with the release of ‘Steel Tray’ due June 28th.
