The Mango Furs return with progressive number ‘Shoes United’ – a psychedelic track with layers of character
Bursting onto the Nashville scene back in 2019 with fantastic EP ‘Inner Migrations’, The Mango Furs unveil their new release ‘Shoes United‘.
Somewhere in between realms of psychedelia and progressive-rock, The Mango Furs are a transcending quartet who would easily fit a line-up with Tame Impala, Pond and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.
On creating the release, Chris Higdon (The Mango Furs’ lead vocalist) told us, “To me, “Shoes Untied” is a lysergic love song and there is something quite beautiful in how the blissful melody and chords are juxtaposed against the longing in the lyrics.
I’ve always loved the romanticism in songs like George Harrison’s version of “If Not For You” and I wanted to touch more on the “fall” of falling in love and the viewpoint from that lens.
We collaborated with video Director Caleb Herring who did a stellar job of capturing the nostalgia of the song in the video and I think it mirrors the tune quite well.”
A retro style video to go with the refreshing single, the overall release of ‘Shoes United’ is well-balanced and something to soothe the soul.
Genre-bending and highly original, The Mango Furs are a band that mean serious business.
