Less than a decade ago, Josh Lloyd and Tom McFarland were two friends with what felt like the impossible dream of one day seeing their name above the door of their local venue, Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
That was an ambition that they achieved when touring in support of their 2014 self-titled debut album. They went on to sell out London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace and the Hollywood Palladium some 9,000 kilometres from home. They’ve performed on five different continents, headlining as far afield as Sydney and Moscow, while also winning new fans at festivals such as Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.
Jungle’s international following embraced their albums too. Their Mercury Prize-nominated, Gold-certified debut and 2018’s follow-up ‘For Ever’ both entered the UK Top 10. Those two records have since amassed 750,000 equivalent album sales and close to a billion streams.
