Some album names have seemingly nothing to do with the underlying songs and others just hit the nail on the head. The Jungle Giants third album, Quiet Ferocity, falls under the latter category as it perfectly depicts the tone of the underlying music. Despite exploring a number of different styles in the album, this Aussie group never swings and misses. There’s a polished restraint to their music, however. With each guitar swell and background build, it feels as though The Jungle Giants could bust out a full-on rock anthem. Each time they pull you back in, typically with the addition of a new musical element, be it a dancey synth a clear cut vocal chop or even a new piano riff. It’s this instrumentation in Quiet Ferocity that really takes it to the next level and makes this project a must-listen!
