Another bloody FANTASTIC Takeover, this time thanks to the lovely folk at RCA Records (Sony). We were lucky enough to have not 1, not 2, but 3 incredible artists perform for us at this months' Lounge Session at Jungle.
Swedish Tove Styrke kicked things off with such confidence and star quality. Her understated and conversational vocal style had the audience eating out of the palms of her hands and the tune; 'Say My Name' is such a brilliantly executed pop tune that we just know will be all over the charts in the coming months.
Next up was indie pop/indie rock band from Reading, Sundara Karma. With choruses built for arenas and poetic lyrics, it's obvious to see why they've been garnering such hype with early music adopters. 'She Said' had the audience moving with the catchy chorus and we loved their latest single 'Flame' which already boasts almost 7 million streams on Spotify.
File Sundara Karma next to Arcade Fire, Bruce Springsteen and U2.
Last but not least we had the pleasure of welcoming none other than Kodaline to the Lounge Session stage. Fresh from their 'Other Stage' gig at Glastonbury, they wowed the audience and played their latest and greatest tunes like the total pros that they are. With beautiful harmonies, anthemic choruses and nostalgic lyrics - they were the perfect end to an absolutely smashing Lounge Session.
In true Lounge Session style once the live music finished we went up onto the Jungle roof terrace afterwards for more bubbles and tunes by Cannes legends Jim and Josh too!
Thanks SO much to RCA Records (Sony) for helping to make this happen, and to all of our wonderful clients/friends who came along and made it such a memorable event.
Can't wait until the next one!
