London-based collective Jungle have revealed the video for their new single Busy Earnin’. It’s directed by Oliver Hadlee Pearch and the band’s own ‘J’, the same team that made the videos for Jungle’s previous acclaimed singles, Platoon and The Heat, which have now been viewed over four and a half million times between them.

Based around a core musical duo known simply as ‘J’ and ‘T’ who expand to a thrilling seven piece live band, Jungle make mesmeric, modern soul that’s unmistakably born in the UK but with true global appeal. Busy Earnin’, which is available on vinyl and download, is the band’s first single since signing to XL Recordings / Remote Control.

TEETH & TONGUE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘GRIDS’ AND RELEASE NEW VIDEO

Teeth & Tongue return with sophmore album Grids out on 21st March 2014 via Dot Dash / Remote Control.

“Every time I make an album I swear it’s going to be a quick, easy, straightforward affair, but that doesn’t ever seem to happen. When I came back from the USA at the end of 2012, I had a bunch of new songs that I’d written for the tour and wanted to demo properly.  AJ Bradford and I had some mutual friends and he had a nice studio so I went in there for a few days to track a demo of ‘Good Man’”, says Jess Cornelius.

“Somehow that demo turned into the beginning of this new album, although it would take an entire year before we got close to finishing it”.

“I was extremely lucky with the people involved too: Marc Regueiro-Mckelvie and Damian Sullivan from the live band both play a lot on the album, and we had Laura Jean and Peter Luscombe play on a couple of tracks, as well as Tim O’Connor from Ballads”.

Teeth & Tongue is the music project of New Zealand born, Melbourne-based musician Jess Cornelius. In 2011 Teeth & Tongue released second album Tambourine though Dot Dash/Remote Control. The Age gave it four stars, The Vine called it “One of the best Australian releases this year”, and the first single ‘Unfamiliar Skirts’ earned an EG Awards nomination for song of the year.

Premiered today by The Vine, ‘Newborn’ is the second single taken from Grids.

Words by Matthew Cribb, Director
“The idea was mostly a kind of re-engineering of Groove Armada’s 1999 video for “I See You Baby (alternate version)”. Instead of unnecessarily over-sexualized women, we used buffed up dudes pumping weights and showcasing their muscles. We went in with only a minimal amount of visual imagery we wanted to re-create, but beyond that it was largely a collaborative effort with virtually everyone on set involved”

Grids Track-listing:
1. Good Man
2. More Than This
3. Newborn
4. I Feel Good
5. Easy Living
6. Boredom
7. Going South
8. The Party Is You
9. Today
10. Mess You Up
11. Family Home
