We Speak To Neon Jungle’s Jess!

Your next single takes a different direction musically, compared to your last 3 singles. Did you always plan to have a more stripped-back and raw record? No, no, no – not at all, it kind of just happened naturally. The album will show you that our music is very diverse, it just so happened that the first three were more up tempo and there’s some more up tempo tracks on the album as well. I think it was just right as a full song, that one should be next probably.

Do you feel that having a song that isn’t necessarily considered a club banger, it shows off the different styles of music you can create?
Yeah, yeah, definitely. I mean, I think people were just expecting the same thing. I think it does show a different side, it shows we can sing! It’s completely different, isn’t it? Which is good, because I think that even though the last three were like really fast they were still completely different from the others. I think we’re just going with the theme of keeping it different.

It’s a song that everyone can relate to and I think everyone has been in that position, you know been in a relationship or situation where they’ve had no sense of control


The song is about drowning out emotions. What was the inspiration for this?
It’s a song that everyone can relate to and I think everyone has been in that position, you know been in a relationship or situation where they’ve had no sense of control, so the only thing that they can do is just drown it out because they’re so confused by it. Yeah, that was it, like literally it’s something everyone can relate to – we’re a group and there’s four of us but all four of us can definitely relate to the song.

It’s not exactly new news, but you girls got scouted by Storm. Did you ever think that you’d be part of a modelling agency? Never. It’s always been a dream, especially Storm! People like Kate Moss are signed to them so it’s incredible. I just feel like, the future, you don’t even know what is around the corner. Everything that seems to be happening with Neon Jungle seems to be out of the blue and random, like when we did Victoria’s Secret, like no one had a clue that was happening and the festivals that we’re performing at this year… Like last year I was in the audience and this year I’m going to be on stage at Wireless, so yeah, I’m just taking it as it all comes I think.
