Fake Jungle explores the theme of overcoming fear and doubt, via a surreal anecdote from Bernard’s time playing as a session drummer in Las Vegas, “one night James Brown came and sat in with a band I was playing with. I honestly could not play well. It was fear. Fear of not being good enough for James Brown”. The track title is a reference to the hotel Mirage in Las Vegas where Bernard played, which features a fake greenhouse jungle, and Bernard drew musical inspiration for the track from American psych-soul artist Shuggie Otis.

Bernard previously played in Vadoinmessico, the band that went on to become Cairobi. 3 South & Banana is Bernard’s debut solo project, and he has launched the single, Fake Jungle, in July 2018.

With an EP forthcoming, and live performances in the planning, Bernard explains “for the live show I’m collaborating with artist Tartaruga Feliz, to create a different kind of live visual, virtual band experience”.
