We are geeked to premiere the new single from AM Dandy And The Elements called “Jungle Out There’ today at P&W. The highly rockin’ track is off the bands’ upcoming, fully-instrumental album entitled Oracle, which is due out on 3-26-21.
“Jungle Out There” is what we think would happen if guitar hero Eddie Van Halen, had a baby with the ragtime composer, Scott Joplin in 2021. The catchy and jaunty single has some arpeggiated piano, bouncy bass, foot-tapping rim shots and slick guitar work to start off. Then the track picks up speed and so does the shredding by virtuoso Alessandro Meynardi, aka AM Dandy, as the range and preciseness he displays, is simply jaw-dropping. When the track ends, you really have no choice, but to listen again and again to try to comprehend it all…it’s that good.
“Jungle Out There,” was “Inspired by TV shows from the 90’s and early 2000’s, including “Monk” starring a great Tony Shalhoub. I imagined him, in the middle of Hollywood, obsessively scared by germs.” -AM Dandy
