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. Download Busy Earnin’ here.
South-east London artist King Krule will release his debut LP 6 Feet Beneath The Moon via XL Recordings / Remote Control on Friday 23rd August.
From the opening clarion call of ‘Easy, Easy’ it is abundantly clear that this is a breathtakingly bold and arresting sonic worldview, as his songs, under the watchful eye of producer Rodaidh McDonald (The XX, Savages, How To Dress Well) open up to become a loose knit meditation on regret and discontent, loss of faith and renewal of hope, and optimism in the face of desperation.
Sigur Rós will release their new album Kveikur in Australia on Friday 14 June via XL Recordings / Remote Control.
To mark the news, the band revealed new song ‘Brennisteinn’, the first track to be taken from Kveikur which was self-produced by the three members of Sigur Rós: Jón Þór Birgisson, Georg Holm and Orri Páll Dýrason.
The song is accompanied by an Andrew Huang directed video. As fans who’ve heard new songs performed on the band’s current tour will testify, ‘Brennisteinn’ marks a shift towards a more direct, aggressive sound on the new record.
Watch the video for ‘Brennisteinn’ below.
To further celebrate the announcement, Sigur Rós premiered the title track from their upcoming album on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Friday night.

So in the midst of yet more weird weather and the beginning of another year it feels right to put out a song called ….. Judge Jury and Executioner from Amok. It’s up on youtube here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4tW3mhp9io – I hope you like it.
The flip side of the release is a tune called S.A.D.”
