Vijay Mohan – King Of The Jungle
Vijay Mohan’s voice has a darkness and depth to it that causes ‘King Of The Jungle’ to roar with a weighty feel to it.
While the track itself leans heavily on a tried and tested chord sequence that has often been referred to as the ‘four chords’ (check the Axis of Awesome track), this serves the song in a way that causes it to feel new and familiar in equal measure. As the opening bars play out, it feels as though this is going to be more of a soul/R&B song. In reality this couldn’t be further from the truth – as the track begins to unfurl, it reveals a true pop rock sensibility that will doubtless pull on the heartstrings of all kinds of music lovers. It’s the kind of song that would work perfectly on a modern Disney soundtrack, with just the right amount of sweetness to it but at the same time offering a seriousness in its production that doesn’t allow it to be confused for any old kind of throwaway cartoon nonsense. The track carries with it strong positive messages that encourages self confidence and the idea of stepping up to take on the world. Certainly ideal driving music to either kick start your day or give yourself a feel good boost when you need a pick me up.
