Jungol, comprised of two brothers and one long-time friend, have created a sound that is a clear standout in the realm of experimental rock. Sometimes moody and ethereal, sometimes loud and complex, Jungol's music stretches across a landscape of emotions while focusing on well-crafted songs with engaging vocals. ' The style can be compared to a more monochromatic Mars Volta with some hints of U2. The sound is hard-edged with loud instrumentals and softer pop vocals. The sound is characteristic of much of the indie and progressive rock popular today, appealing to urban hipster types with a penchant for vocal effects. Jungol has ...something of a radio friendly vibe, but in keeping with their artistic integrity.' Alex Bordosy, Jambase Founding members Josh and Graham Yoder have inhabited Atlanta's rock scene with various ensembles since their high school years. The formidable drummer, Jason Monseur, joined the brothers in 2003 and together, they have spread Jungol's unique brand of rock across the U.S. In the spring of 2007, Jungol released their first full-length album Tiny Heaven: '...it is this experimentation that characterizes Jungol's attempt to create a sound that pushes the envelope. You can never predict what the next song will sound like because they all contain different structures, sounds, instruments, harmonies, etc.' Music-Reviewer.com Places, a 6 song EP unveiled in February 2009, showcases Jungol's renewed vision of more concise songs with prominent vocals. Places also demonstrates their passion for creating new sounds through the use of samplers, synths, a glockenspiel, field recordings and string arrangements.
