The funk and soul dance duo comprising Joshua Lloyd-Watson Tom McFarland have today (May 30) shared two vibrant, standalone singles ready for the summer.
Accompanying the tracks is a joint music video directed by the pair’s long-term collaborators JFC Worldwide (Charlie Placido and J. Lloyd). Amsterdam dance troupe Ghetto Funk Collective feature in the footage.
‘Good Times’ and ‘Problemz’ are the first taste of what’s next from Jungle following the Top Five UK chart success of their third LP, ‘Loving In Stereo’, which was released last August.

In an interview with NME last year Jungle spoke about the free attitude they applied to their latest album, which was celebrated for them “letting loose” more.
“The older we get, the more we stop giving a fuck,” Lloyd-Watson told NME.
“The more you can release your fears of what you think you can be or what you can do, you’re just in this creative freedom. It’s why Jungle is reaching where it is and why, in our view, Jungle is reaching its creative pinnacle,” he said.
