Female-fronted power rock trio Jane N’ The Jungle introduces their new music video, “Ocean Creatures,” the title track from their recently released EP.
Produced by Chuck Alkazian, the EP’s genesis occurred when vocalist Jordan White was hit by a driver running a red light. Jordan underwent an out-of-body experience, caught in a moment she thought she was going to die.
Jordan explains, “I couldn’t identify the sensation; it was like imagining ocean creatures flying in space thinking that they were probably angels. That’s the imagery that came to mind when writing the song.”
With their visceral, potent sound, Jane N’ The Jungle has amassed more than 1,000,000 streams on Spotify, along with editorial playlisting on All New Rock, Fierce Femmes, and Women of Rock Radio. In addition, the threesome just performed at SXSW’s Ladybird Lake alongside Sammy Hagar and will perform at Los Angeles’ Viper Room on March 26.
Jane N’ The Jungle has received features in elite outlets such as Music Choice, Alt Press, Huffington Post, Medium, Metal Injection, Women that Rock, Loud Women, Max Alt, The Hype Magazine, New Noise, Punktastic, PHX New Times, and AZ Central, as well as vast airplay on myriad radio stations, including Sirius XM. The band has shared the stage with DREAMERS, UPSAHL, Lacey Sturm, From Ashes to New, DED, Crimson Apple, Convey, Charming Liars, Shaman’s Harvest, Powerman 5000, A Silent Film, and Sydney Sprague.
The band has a live stream concert scheduled for April at the Gibson Guitar Showroom in Los Angeles that will raise money for Make A Wish AZ.
“Ocean Creatures” opens on darkly gleaming guitars flowing into a measured rhythm as Jordan’s crème de la crème vocals imbue the lyrics with enigmatic savors. As the music mousses up, the harmonics swell and gather depth and resonance, imbuing the tune with thick, compact coloration.
The video, provided by Jim Louvau and Tony Aguilera (NIN, Corey Taylor), depicts Jordan surrounded by spectral, coruscating lights, representing an indeterminate state between life and death.
Low-slung yet powerful, “Ocean Creatures” reveals the nuanced dominance of the evocative voice of Jordan White.
