Jungle – Time

jungle-time

I’m a little bored about everyone going on about this band cos everyone is like “have you heard Jungle?” and I’m like “yessss……” (close my eyes) because at the moment apparently it’s uber cool to like Jungle, y’know they signed to XL, they have wicked videos, they have an amazing live show etc… It was like Disclosure last year – “SHUT UP ABOUT DISCLOSURE already” – except Disclosure have a boring live show, so Jungle win on that front. Anyway I thought Jungle’s last tune ‘Busy Earnin’ was alright, but I had a feeling this band were going to become overrated pretty quickly, however this new Jungle tune is undeniably good. Steve Martin’s advice in life “Be undeniably good” – and if Jungle continue to be then I guess everyone will love them forever. Although it’s going to be interesting to see if Jungle last the test of time, and whether people will care once the HYPE is over, and after they’ve released album one where do they go from there? I don’t really have a problem with artists who are undeniably good, even if everyone is going on about it, it’s the overrated ones that I have a problem with. I respect Jungle for having an amazing live show because too many bands don’t care about their live show anymore, there aren’t many good live bands around anymore… Anyway I think it’s almost a little dangerous getting HUGE after one album, because the faster things happen the quicker they stop, and I think this band seem a little one dimensional on the surface, but who knows maybe they have many layers. I guess it doesn’t matter at the moment because they’re killing it right now, and if you were them you’d just be taking things one step at a TIME…
