Entrenched around guitarist/singer Rachael Whittle’s swaggering, off-kilter yet decidedly arena-sized compositions, Pave The Jungle formed in the English city of Newcastle in early 2019.


With the addition of long-term collaborator Scott Jeffery (drums) the duo was completed by May of that year.


Over the ensuing summer, the pair bounced between rehearsals and nearby Blank Studios (Pigsx7, Richard Dawson, Du Blonde); and by years-end were in possession of a blistering 6-track mission statement in ‘The Hissing’ EP.


Predictably, momentum stalled with the ushering in of the first UK Covid-19 lockdown. And just days after a feverishly well-received opening slot for Texan alt rock heavyweights ‘...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead’ - only the band’s third live appearance. 


Despite the pandemic grounding live efforts, plans to deliver ‘The Hissing’ in late 2020 remained unchanged. Upon release in October, the EP was met with positive reviews from a wide scope of press & radio. Early adopters of the band include DIY, Punktastic, VISIONS (DE), Amazing Radio, Total Rock Radio & BBC Introducing; the latter playlisting lead track ‘Emerald’ for regular cross-schedule play on BBC Radio Newcastle


A follow-up arrived in the shape of self-produced, standalone single 'All You Know' in March '21, and one month later The Hissing received its first physical release via Du Blonde's new label 'Daemon T.V.'..


January 2021 marked Whittle & Jeffery's return to Blank Studios to produce a second EP. With engineer Chris McManus at the helm once again, the EP’s four tracks - mixed by Tarek Musa (Spring King, The Big Moon, Calva Louise) - are penned for release this November, allied with 12 UK tour dates:
