Jungle Doctors - Settle

Will Tyler - Jungle Doctors
The RADAR night (26/02/2015) at Chelsea Stadium's plush Under The Bridge venue is one of the hottest live events for both the music industry and fans alike. It is a platform to showcase the best unsigned and just-signed talent who are emerging from under the wings of Music Week, ILUVLIVE and MusicConnex.
Louis Watton - drums
It was a first outing of the year for the fresh sounds of South London five-piece Jungle Doctors.
Formed in late 2011 out of boredom during school lunchtimes, their name is inspired by Louis Watton's (JD drummer) dad, who's own band was called ‘Jungle doctor spots a leopard’ after a popular children’s book series.
Angus McGuinness
Following the release of their first EP in July 2012, the band has caught the eye of kingmakers Tom Robinson and Gary Crowley at BBC Introducing. In April 2014 they released a free download single ‘Dry’, taken from their ‘Open Up’ EP. Both this and their follow up 'Falling' garnered healthy air time in the following months.
Sam Budd
Here at Under The Bridge they started with the aforementioned 'Falling', blowing off the cobwebs in a matter of seconds to give a buoyant and effervescing performance, followed in this short set by 'Late' .Usually it would be the handsome prow of such a fine vessel that took the attention, particularly when under a four guitar assault but it was the drums of Louis Watton who beached the song on our shores.
David Thomas
Normal service was resumed on their current single 'Settle' which fizzed with the vocal of Sam Budd and guitar of Angus McGuinness. In recent weeks Jungle Doctors have supported The Cribs in their own backyard, the confines of which wont hold this burgeoning group for much longer.
