Plants And Animals 'The Jungle'

Plants and Animals, have announced their forthcoming release The Jungle, will be available on October 23rd via Secret City Records (Braids, Owen Pallett). Their shortest album yet and certainly their boldest, The Jungle is eight acts in a world full of noise. The album is auto-produced and was recorded at Mixart, their studio in Montreal. Ahead of the album’s release, the band has shared the single and video “House on Fire”, the song is based on Warren’s haunting feeling that a friend who was taking too many sleeping pills might forget to turn his stove off.

The band explains : “We started working on this a couple of years ago. Warren was afraid for a friend’s health. He thought he was self-medicating too much and not taking care of himself. He couldn’t let go of this image of an overworked dude swallowing too many sleeping pills and falling asleep with the stove on. So it began as the place next door, sometime before Greta Thunberg turned the expression into a rallying cry, where Earth is the house and the people are sleeping. It’s terrifying, and on the whole we’re not unlike this friend, are we?”

The Jungle are personal experiences made in a volatile world, and they reflect that world right back at us, even by accident. There’s one song Nic sings to his teenage son who was dealing with climate change anxiety and drifting into uncharted independence. The band carries it out slowly together into a sweet blue horizon. Warren wrote the words to another shortly after losing his father. It’s about the things we inherit not necessarily being the things we want. In a broader sense, that’s where a lot of people find themselves right now.
