JUNGLE SHARE THE NEW SINGLE ‘DOMINOES’
+ NEW ALBUM VOLCANO FOLLOWS ON
British producer duo Jungle today take another big step towards the 11 August release of their eagerly anticipated fourth album Volcano by sharing the new single ‘Dominoes‘. The album’s lead single ‘Candle Flame’ (featuring Erik The Architect) became a major airplay hit, now approaching 8 million streams.
‘Dominoes’ is just as immediate. Its sparkling guitar motif, looping soulful vocal and warm organic instrumentation replicates the exuberance of Jungle’s famous live show and soundtracks the Summer.
The ‘Dominoes’ visual delivers precisely what you want from the multifaceted creative world of Jungle – expressive, inventive, eye-catching one-take choreography that brings a physical language to the music. Directed, as ever, by J Lloyd & Charlie Di Placido of Contentus Maximus, the video segues seamlessly from ‘Candle Flame’ and drops a teaser as to what to expect from their future track release, ‘I’ve Been In Love’.
The Volcano album will represent a leap forward for Jungle. Not only embracing their position in the music community by drawing upon their broadest array of featured collaborators to date, but their innovative production expertise means that almost every single note you hear on the album is entirely original – it features just one sample. The result is an inspiring, life-affirming experience that will provide communal joy on the dancefloor as well as personal escapism through headphones.
The next few months will see Jungle perform to a total of more than 190,000 people, starting with a landmark London festival headline set at All Points East. They will then take their euphoric, full-live band show across America and Europe on a tour which includes numerous arena dates.
Jungle are lifelong friends from Shepherd’s Bush, London. Their self-titled breakthrough debut album became an instant classic, leading to a Mercury Prize nomination, which they followed with the album For Ever before amplifying their success with Loving In Stereo – all contributing to a total of over a billion streams to date. Their extended live band has made them firm festival favourites, headlining Wilderness and South Facing as well as drawing huge crowds as far afield as Coachella and Lollapalooza Brazil, while headline shows have included Alexandra Palace and multiple nights at the O2 Academy Brixton. Their visionary stylised and choreographed videos are also a major aspect of Jungle’s artistic identity, most notably with the ambitious visual narrative that spanned every track on Loving In Stereo.
