A DTV exclusive, this Limited Edition Cassette of Pave The Jungle’s EP ‘The Hissing’ comes with a hand folded zine spread featuring artwork by Pave The Jungle front woman Rachael Whittle. This turquoise version is limited to just 15 copies so don’t hang around if you’d like to secure your copy.
The vehicle for Rachael Whittle’s swaggering, off-kilter yet decidedly arena-sized compositions, Pave The Jungle formed early in 2019 in Newcastle, Northern England.
Soon enlisting drummer & long-term collaborator Scott Jeffery to help realise her revived sonic vision, the pair entered Blank Studios that summer, and by years-end had created a six-track mission statement in debut EP ‘The Hissing’.
Predictably, momentum stalled with the introduction of the first UK Covid-19 lockdown. And just days after a feverishly well-received opening slot for Texan alt rock heavyweights ‘...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead’ - only the band’s third live appearance.
Despite the pandemic grounding live plans, preperations to deliver The Hissing in the second half of 2020 continued. Upon its release in October the EP was met with positive reviews from a respectable selection of press & radio; early adopters of the band including DIY, Punktastic, VISIONS (DE), Amazing Radio, Total Rock Radio & BBC Introducing.
Never enthusiastic about wasting time, Whittle & Jeffery returned to Blank Studios in January 2021 to track their second EP. With engineer Chris McManus at the helm once again, the four tracks were mixed by Tarek Musa (Spring King, The Big Moon, Kagoule) and are scheduled for release later this year.
