According to Refinery29, Pizza! isn’t “much concerned with how smoothly they go down,” yet “Riding Through The Jungle” is one of the band’s “easiest-to-digest songs.” Calling the track “Butthole Surfers’-indebted psychedelia,” the site writes that “when Pizza! occasionally shake off their choral singing and spastic rhythmic shenanigans, they emerge with a penchant for deft hooks and a genuine pop sensibility. The resulting cacophony of ‘Riding Through The Jungle’ bursts with a weirdness that comes across like party music for dadaists stuck in a Trapper Keeper.” Listen here.
“Riding Through The Jungle” is on the new re-release of the band’s We Come From The Swamp, at radio now from Vanity Projects.
