Naarm/Melbourne based rapper Agung Mango has offered his first taste of music for the year, sharing his candid new A+B Side, 120fps / WISEFOOL. The musician will also be joining Genesis Owusu on his national tour, this April-June.
Offering two versatile sides of the rapper, the release meanders between the funk-infused stylings of 120fps and the softer side on WISEFOOL. On 120fps, Agung contemplates his own success whilst confronting his inner demons. Speaking of the release, the rapper shares: "The relationship discussed in the song is a metaphor used to describe the struggles and dependencies I’ve had in the past with using drugs. Throughout the past few years it has been an ongoing journey of myself battling depression and addictions, while simultaneously just trying to stay afloat. This song is me coming to the realisation that these dependencies were constantly dragging me into a dark place and slowing me down, and was something that I needed to let go of in order to achieve all the things I want to do in life."
Speaking of WISEFOOL, Mango continues, "I wanted the freedom to be able to unapologetically write a song that didn’t just have to have only one premise or storyline, similar to how dreams are like. It is free flowing and spontaneous, and I just laid down whatever was on my mind at the time."
120fps / WISEFOOL is out now!
