Soul/Funk Collective Jungle Capture Distinct Moods with Two New Songs, ‘House in LA’ and ‘Happy Man’ (Listen)

Jungle is a soul/funk-pop ensemble from England made up of seven musicians with a captivating sound and strong work ethic. Currently riding the buzz after two performances at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival last month, the group has unveiled two brand new songs.

The two singles will be released on vinyl format soon — pre-orders are up now.
