Life of the Party By JANE N’ THE JUNGLE


Jane N' The Jungle is throwing a fiery party on their upcoming EP "Life of the Party," but not in the way you might expect. Led by powerhouse vocalist Jordan White and shredding guitarist Brian Dellis, this rock band from Phoenix, AZ is known for infusing their sound with emotional lyrics that cut deep.

On "Life of the Party," they take you through the realms of addiction, toxicity, and finding yourself as the catalyst for someone else's downward spiral.

Let's break it down track by track - we kick things off with "Dirty Dog" which has been shaking up my playlist since I’ve heard it. I still get thrills whenever I hear those raw lyrics from Jordan White. Next up is "Metal Ghost," which goes hard!

The opening riff had me headbanging before the first verse even hit. Jordan and Brian lock in like a well-oiled machine, the drums are thumping, and the bass just rumbles underneath it all like an approaching storm. This track blends all the best parts of metal and hard rock into minutes of pure rock euphoria.

Next is "Wasteland," a big favorite off the record. This song takes you on a path of discovery by fusing grunge, alternative, and rock components into an unforgettable feel. As you begin to believe that the band's rawness can go no farther, they unveil "Cut Me Open."

Grand, melodic musicality sets the scene for White to lay herself out there over sputtering guitars. The EP slows it down for "Bed of Roses," but don't let the gentle vibe fool you though, this song still packs a mind-blowing wallop. Engaging guitars twine around Jordan's soul-baring vocals as she breathes new life into the age-old metaphor of rose-covered beds.

The title tune "Life of the Party" is the last, but certainly not the least. Now, that's how you end a good EP. Everything admirable about Jane N' The Jungle's composition and musicianship is captured in this song.

Jordan uses devastating poetry to create striking portrayals of codependency, addiction, and self-sacrifice for others. Brian and the band build an epic, atmospheric soundscape around her, flowing with cinematic swells.

With this visceral new record, expect Jane N' The Jungle to make even bigger waves on the rock scene in 2024. Some songs will have you unapologetically rocking out, but the wide dynamic range keeps the full listen consistently absorbing.

More than just an album, "Life of the Party" feels like an artistic statement that will burrow its way into your regular rotation. One stream of this record will have you hooked on this act's immense talent and gaining anticipation for where they will take their audience next.
