Welcome to Jungly: a dreamscape where love is free, where sexual expression exists in its most primal form, and where Aish Divine has unleashed his powerful new single.
On his latest single, Aish Divine welcomes audiences into a jungle of neon textures, electronic soundscapes, and unbounded sexual expression. Jungly is as much a call for freedom as it is a beacon of catharsis, scoring nuance onto the face of an otherwise reserved genre.
Burning with glossy electro-pop stylings, the New York artist has blended technical skill, limitless creativity, and intimate nuances into three irresistible minutes of sonic expression.
Sonically, Aish Divine is an artist tracing the edge. His melodies are limitless, yet still feel familiar, and his blend of contemporary electronic and Bollywood (sampling Yeh kahan aa gaye hum from the film Silsila) melts two competing sonic spheres together into a stunning sojourn. Just listening to Jungly, you would think that there is nothing that the artist couldn’t do.
The track’s music video then takes his artistry to another level. Audiences find Divine trapped in corporate life, devoid from freedom. Enter a brutal blow to the head and waves of consciousness usher him into a kaleidoscopic dreamscape, one that is as unbounded as the track’s melody.
The Bollywood-influenced, neon-tinted imagery of the video casts Divine’s raw lyricism into a tool of liberation: encouraging the viewer to see sexuality in its most innate form.

“On Jungly, the third single on The Sex Issue, Aish Divine is asking for the most raw, primal, hedonistic, liberated expression of sexuality,” the artist’s bio reads.
“The eight Telly Award-winning surreal music video filmed inside a real ambulance depicts Aish Divine in an altered, violent state with aesthetic echoes of tribal and Islamic influences Aish Divine experienced during his years in India. Again, this video features an all person of colour, non-binary cast, a female-run production, directed by Jaclyn Gramigna and produced by Velocity Creatives run by Natalie Schwan.”
Explosive and irresistible in every possible way, Jungly is a single that couldn’t better itself, even if it tried. Divine has certainly hit a home run with this release, and we’re on the edge of our seats waiting to see what he delivers next.
