London’s Jungle are set to release AA single Platoon/Drops on July 15th through Chess Club – and it’s an absolute peach. Coupled with a brilliant video, lead track ‘Platoon’ is an eye-catching soul-groove, but it’s Drops that we’re taking a closer look at today.

Again swathed in soul influence and nuance, Drops offers easy-listening in abundance. Punctuated with sparse piano chimes and subtle atmospherics throughout; this track feeds off the incredible lead vocal and is a hand-in-hand accompaniment to Platoon. However, what is perhaps most charming here is Jungles’ ability to reference vintage soul and disco whilst exploring mid-tempo, contemporary stylistics. Visit to pre-order the limited 7” AA single.
