About us

Jungle Indie Rock is an independent music portal specialized in new, emerging, and under-the-radar bands, founded in 2010 to promote new artists in a friendly context. We are a group of journalists and music lovers based in Spain and collaborators that contributed, over the years, from the UKUSA, or Australia. In May 2015, we founded the music charity, The Jungle Project.

On our main website, you will find articles, premieres, concerts, albums, playlists, or videos that you can sort by labels according to your favorite music genre, country, or even the year or decade that you prefer. We also have an international blog and a blog of Spanish music, both updated on Tumblr with short posts daily.
