London’s Jungle (led by Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland) released a new album, For Ever, last September via XL. Now they have shared a video for the album’s “Casio.” Lloyd-Watson co-directed the video with frequent visual collaborator Charlie Di Placido. It features various dancers dancing to the song. Watch it below, followed by their upcoming tour dates.

When the album was announced they shared two new songs from it, “Cherry” and “Heavy, California” (which made our Songs of the Week list). For Ever also includes “Happy Man” and “House in LA,” two songs the band shared back in May 2018 and released as a double A-side 12-inch single in June 2018 (they also both made our Songs of the Week list). Then they shared “Beat 54 (All Good Now)” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week).

It’s been four years since Jungle’s 2014-released Mercury Prize-nominated self-titled debut album. The band performed “House in LA” on Last Call with Carson Daly, filmed during the band’s performance at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles in December 2017 but broadcast in February 2018.

The band describe For Ever as “a post-apocalyptic radio station playing break up songs.”

The band moved to Hollywood to work on the album, but ended up finishing it back in London. As the press release explains: “If Jungle’s first album was their imaginary soundtrack to the places they had never been, For Ever is inspired by real life experiences of the places they’d dreamed of for so long. Swapping Shepherds Bush for the Hollywood Hills, J and T set up camp in Los Angeles to write and record the album. Over time however, their romanticization 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.”

They finished the album in London with the producer Inflo.
