Taking the leap from trendy, hype label Chess Club Records to humongous industry giants XL Recordings, funk-pop collective Jungle have hit the big time with their tremendously catchy new single, Busy Earnin. Whereas with previous releases there has been a wave of inconclusive speculation about the bands size and various identities, we now know that Jungle are in fact a seven-piece ensemble, rather than the simple duo I originally mistook them for. Back to Busy Earnin though, this is quite easily the funkiest song I’ve heard this year. With a groove that would make the Queen want to get up and shuffle, Busy Earnin is a horntastic triumph. You won’t hear anything else quite as good as this over the next seven days.
