Swapping Shepherd’s Bush for the Hollywood Hills, J and T set up camp in Los Angeles to write and record the album.
Over time, their romanticisation of the Californian Dream clashed with the reality of actually living it, the feeling of being adrift on the West Coast compounded by the collapse of long-term relationships.
Returning home to London, they teamed up with highly regarded young producer Inflo, where they sought to create a ‘post-apocalyptic radio station playing break up songs’.
That station and those songs and that journey are the sound of Jungle’s second album For Ever. They had to go away to come home.
And what J and T lost in love, they gained in music.
For Ever is for real, deeper and higher, more intimate and more expansive, feelgood and, just occasionally, feelbad. It is, then, a proper second album.
For ages 14+. Under-18s should be accompanied by an adult.
