Jungle.wav – Old School analogue ambience with “Jai Guru Deva”

The video to Jungle.wav’s single ‘Jai Guru Deva’ is roughly 100 seconds of dreamy, escapist visions of mountains and alpine forest, all lo-fi shakiness on old-school cine-8.

That’s pretty much the music, too; dreamy, escapist, and low tempo. Sweeping old-school electronica mixes lo-fi beats, soothing chillwave and half-spoken mellow vocals; it’s trancey and reverb-soaked, chilled and psychedelic. Yes, there’s an obvious Eno-like reference in its ambience, but there’s elements of Ryuichi Sakamoto and Youssou N’Dour mixed in with the chiming strings and sweeping, old-school analogue synth. Behind the whispered vocal sit lo-fi, Moog and ARP sounds, and then, all too soon, it’s over.

You can hear ‘Jai Guru Deva’ on YouTube, and find more from Jungle.wav here.
