Bio

Newcastle’s Rum Jungle have emerged as a serious player in one of the country’s most lively music scenes with a refreshing mix of reggae and rock. The four-piece group have developed a devoted fanbase off the back of their first two EPs Crazy Days and Sun & Smoke, and have already shared the stage with the likes of Lime Cordiale, Peking Duk, and Hilltop Hoods.

Their most recent single ‘Lately I’ve Been’ saw Rum Jungle take their sound to new heights with laid back vocals and dynamic guitar runs, all while keeping their reggae-fusion sound.

The band sold out their last hometown headline show in early 2021 and before the global pandemic, joined the line-up of THIS THAT Festival and Rolling Sets Festival.

Another strong track from the Rum Jungle crew. They're at their best when they keep it laidback and cruising but I also really like the way that this one retains a live energy and bounce.

a soothing chiller that captures that 'no rush on a sunday' type feeling.
