Jungle are somehow finding a way to be secretive while still appearing on network television. The English synth-funk group made their US television debut last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and while we don't know the two front member's names -- they go simply by "J" and "T" -- we do know that Jungle rocked on their singles "Busy Earnin'" and "Time."

Jungle "Time" Live on Jimmy Kimmel 6.16.2014:
Jungle had nine musicians on stage for "Busy Earnin'" and seven for "Time," showing off an infectious, multifarious sound. On "Busy Earnin'" you'll hear heavy synthesizer, a punchy brass section, groovy guitar and bass, two percussionists with different set-ups, and on top of all that a quartet of vocalists with cool, high voices à la the Bee Gees. You'll miss the brass in the slightly repetitive "Time," but check out the synthesizer solo as well as an unusual moment where the singers imitate a scooping electronic sound.
You can catch both songs on their upcoming self-titled debut album, Jungle, due out July 15 and available for pre-order through iTunes.
