Jungle haven't even released their first album, but they're already a global sensation among music fans whose ears have been caught by their unique, darkly danceable sound blending influences from disco to electro to classic soul.

With two mysterious members — "J" and "T" — at their core, Jungle are currently performing as a five-piece on their inaugural American tour. On their way to a June 13 show at the Fine Line Music Cafe, Jungle stopped by the Current's studios to play a few songs and talk with Jim McGuinn about their sound, their sudden fame, and their bright future.

Songs performed

"Busy Earnin'"
"The Heat"

All songs off Jungle's self-titled debut, out now on XL Recordings.

Hosted by Jim McGuinn
Produced by Derrick Stevens
Engineered by Mike DeMark
