Single review: Neon Jungle – ‘Braveheart’

Neon Jungle ― Braveheart

neon-jungle-braveheart-cover-2Neon Jungle’s debut album will be out later this year, following their debut single that was released back in 2013.

The lead single from the album, ‘Braveheart’, is surprisingly not bad, but not what would be expected from a teenage girl band. Although they really should lay off the attempted ‘rapping’ (it’s just not working), the song features strong vocals from each of the four band mates, with tons of house influence weaved within the backing track.

When talking about ‘Braveheart’, the band said: “Having it loud, pumping through speakers, it’s just like a rave every time it plays”.

The track is one of those songs that will be picked up by radio stations and clubs and be overplayed to the point of exhaustion. Just like Robin Thicke’s hit ‘Blurred Lines’, the record will be one that you will love to hate. A bit like marmite.

The girls have had huge success following their debut single ‘Trouble’, which was featured on Dancing With The Stars in the U.S, and preceding this they had excelled on iTunes with the single. The song peaked at number eight In the UK charts, and hit number nine on the US Billboard Dance/Electric digital charts also.

If this is anything to go by, the newest single should follow suit and be a hit for the band. The girls were asked to perform at last year’s Victoria’s Secret show, which broke records as they are the first UK artists to perform, appearing alongside with Taylor Swift and Fall Out Boy.

The band have already had the chance to perform and work with some amazing performers, having just finished performing with singer Jessie J. If they have been given the opportunity to tour with such an established artist, they must be pretty damn good!
