5 Mins With… Neon Jungle
Exposed has a quick chat with Neon Jungle.
Hot female foursome, Neon Jungle, hit the Motorpoint Arena this month – as part of the line-up for Hallam FM Summer Live which also features the likes of The Vamps, Kaiser Chiefs and Little Mix. We took to the jungle drums for a chat with band member Shereen Cutkelvin.
Hi Shereen, you guys haven’t actually been around that long (they formed early 2013), but you’ve achieved a hell of a lot already – namely three popular singles and a tour with Jessie J…
I know, it’s been amazing, the time’s really flown – it’s not even been a year and half! We’re so happy with how things have gone. Jessie was really nice too, a very polished performer, and a great experience for us.
What’s the best bit and worst bit about being in a girl group?
Hmmm, I guess just having someone to talk to all the time is the best bit. We do a lot of travelling, that’s probably the worst bit – four girls crammed in a car for hours can be a squeeze – so I’m glad we have each other to talk to.
You’ve got your debut album out in July. And ahead of that you’re hitting Sheffield for Hallam FM Summer Live. Busy, busy…
I know! We’ve got New York and a host of festivals in the pipeline too! The album’s out on the 28th – it’s packed full of energy. At the end of the day, we’re four different girls, so there’s four different styles coming together. I think it’ll surprise a few people. We can’t wait for Sheffield. We’ve played it a few times now, it’s a great city, and the line-up at the Arena is fab. I’ll be knocking on people’s doors to say hello.
Finally then, imagine you’re in an actual neon jungle, and a luminous Tarzan asks you to go swinging with him. What’s your response?
Hahahahahahaha! HELL YEAH! Hahahahahahahahaha…!
