Colour of the Jungle release a new single expressing the seriousness of our current environmental crisis. The beautifully honest and sonically rugged track ‘Humblebee’ aims to bring awareness, acting as a reminder to be more conscious of our actions and how they can dramatically impact our planet.
Lead singer Jack Evans shares on the inspiration of the song, “My sister had gone to a bee farm after her fight with leukaemia and my friend was struggling with a cocaine habit. These events inspired my lyrics. Everyone has stuff going on whether it’s happy or not. I try to deal with my ups and downs by writing songs and each one marks that point in my life”.
Colourful by name, colourful by nature, the five-piece paint a vibrant composition of sounds and textures through their use of intricate basslines, bold guitars and upbeat drums. Evans’ distinct vocals emit a sincere and profound delivery, perfectly complementing the determined, melodic rhythms. Lead guitarist Joe Costello showcases his impressive musicianship, creating an almost vocalised guitar tone, with an energetic twangy accent.
‘Humbleebee’ follows the band’s recent track ‘Steel Tray’, which was applauded for its poignant narration of societal issues. Colour of the Jungle have certainly established a strong, confident sound, indicating current topics and issues that we face in our everyday lives. Proceeds of ‘Humblebee’ will be donated to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
