Canadian The Jailbirds’ highly anticipated sophomore EP Jungle is out now via Golden Robot Records! To celebrate, the band have also dropped a new single from their EP ‘The Jungle’.
Jungle is a collection of 5 songs, each unique in their approach to the subject of depression, anxiety and substance addiction, but cohesive in their theme. Songs like ‘Dull My Brain’ and ‘Watery Grave’ bring charisma and energy to the fore as they tackle substance addiction. Whereas tracks like ‘The Jungle’ and ‘I Will Move On’ are dark and gritty, but hopeful in their lyrics and melody as it delved into the topic of anxiety and depression.
Jungle, when listened to front to back, is a linear story. The tracks on the EP plant the listener firmly in the shoes of a person struggling for conquest of their own mind; their life has become a duality of love and hate.
Step by step (or song by song) the listener learns the story of a person battling self and substance, constantly shifting in their resolve to overcome their depressive and anxious mind.
Calling up inspiration that spans across multiple eras and sounds, The Jailbirds have created a potent blend of hard rock and modern rock that is both nostalgic and fresh throughout this record.
