Jungle was founded by two childhood friends Tom McFarland and Josh Lloyd-Watson (also known as J and T) in 2013.
In 2014, their debut album was nominated for Mercury prize. Jungle has received many warm words of praise from famous critics and periodicals. They were called “the UK’s most mysterious act” and “One of the most intriguing and fresh sounding bands out there”. Esquire, for example, emphasising the unique style of the band states that their music is blended with “tropical percussion, wildlife noises, falsetto yelps, psychedelic washes and badoinking bass”.
