Dropping his first new music since last year’s double single 120 fps/WISEFOOL today is Naarm/Melbourne’s Agung Mango, with RUNAWAY, alongside news of a new EP dropping in September.
RUNAWAY is a big and bold cut of modern r&b at its finest, taking cues from hip-hop, jazz and electronic genres across its epic production, while Mango’s buttery smooth, impassioned vocals deliver a tale inspired by “running away” from an old self, touching on aspects of homelife, family and broader community.
Of the release, Agung Mango shares, "RUNAWAY tells the story of the development of my younger self. Growing up, I came to understand that life isn’t always rainbows and sunshine, but that the path is both lined with flowers and shadowed by demons. This journey involved me finding comfort in my team and community, as well as discovering the unknown by allowing myself to be receptive to its lessons."
