Its always exciting to stumble upon new bands, but finding a good local band is always more satisfying. As was the case when I heard about Jungol. The band is a 3-piece made of 2 brothers and a friend who’ve been part of the Atlanta/Athens, GA indie-circuit since their high school days.
Jungol released their second album, Over the Sun and Under the Radar in April and its full of experimental rock that has a pop edge. “Two People” sways with hard synth that cascades the addictive hook. “Fast Asleep” (youtube vid below) has almost militant drumwork and frantic guitar, but balances pop-sensibility with sweeping vocals.
You just need to hear it, because the experimental nature is tough to describe. In a good way.
