Irish artist Somebody’s Child packs the political and economic anxiety that haunts our generation in new single “Jungle” – a chaotic piece of indie rock where the showering riffage harmonizes with the throbbing rhythmic skeleton. In “Jungle,” Somebody’s Child navigates through the isolation and disillusion we feel while also unleashing the frustrations we’ve built towards a capitalistic culture. Stream below:

“‘Jungle’ to me provokes different feelings than my previous releases, such as loneliness, anguish, hurt and isolation. Its message is clear. It is a reflection of the times we are living in. We have political and economic facades thrown in our face every day. My generation feels disillusioned in its relationship with authority due to the circus going on right from the top figures down to the media broadcast in our homes. No-one seems to have any direction and this feeling is filtering into our minds. Our heads continue to focus on power, money and legacy while our planet is weak at the knees,” explained Somebody’s Child.
