Somebody's Child's new single 'Jungle' deals with loneliness, isolation and hurt amongst other things.
Following a summer tour that included festival slots at Reading & Leeds as well as Electric Picnic, Somebody's Child now returns with new music. 'Jungle' is an energetic song that takes the indie artist into a different direction artistically.
"'Jungle' to me provokes different feelings than my previous releases, such as loneliness, anguish, hurt and isolation", Somebody's Child says, "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."

In an interview with Hot Press back in August, Somebody's Child explained to Lucy O'Toole why it's so important to him to change things up from song to song. "One thing I hated in the past was trying to come up with a sound that was consistent throughout", he says, "Once I rid myself of that, I felt so much freer to write in any way that I wanted. I wasn't confined to the constrictions of what people associate with typical indie-rock or alternative pop music."
