Drug Hunt meets “Jungle”, a psychedelic thrash odyssey

Unleashing raw energy and thought-provoking lyrics, Drug Hunt's latest single is a must-listen.

Drug Hunt, a bizarre quintet of natural seditionists, meets the world once again with their latest single, “Jungle“. This track encapsulates the raw energy and genre-bending sound that the band is rapidly becoming known for.

From the first note, “Jungle” hits hard with frenetic and driving energy. The fuzzed-out riffs and rhythmic guitar work instantly transport you to a world where old-school garage rock and post-punk reign supreme. The song is a whirlwind of sound, stacking long delays and contoured accents before capsizing into a melodic-laden finale that drifts towards sweet oblivion. The energy is palpable, making it impossible not to get lost in the music.

Lyrically, “Jungle” is a thought-provoking piece. With lines like “Into the heart of darkness/I steer my boat upstream”, the song delves into themes of human expansion and its consequences. The imagery of a council with a lion, snake, and man signing a truce highlights the precarious balance between mankind and nature. The band’s vision of this expansion not as mastery, but a fatal flaw, casts a foreboding shadow over the song, making it both a thrilling and sobering listen.
