Slowmango are a six-piece band from South Australia who create raw, progressive, and genre-exploring grooves which combine global musical influences with a buffet of psychedelia, funk, jazz, and progressive rock. Known for their immersive and visually striking live shows, Slowmango have packed out dancefloors at Harvest Rock, Dark Mofo, Darwin Festival and a sold-out residency at The Lab, gaining a cult following for their infectious grooves and unique flair.
With multiple short-form releases under their belt, Slowmango are releasing their debut LP in July 2023 via Porch Records - starting the journey with the first single ‘Ride On, Brocoly Cowboy’ on March 31st and a string of singles to follow. Slowmango’s sound is eclectic and dynamic, embracing lush arrangements which move through rhythms and make bold changes yet always manage to keep a dancefloor moving. They pull inspiration from the deep pockets of the world, incorporating elements from reissued lost tapes of Africa and Asia, the summers of love in both ‘69 and ‘89, the funkier side of jazz, and a healthy dose of improvisation.
Not afraid to experiment, Slowmango often collaborate with sister multi-arts collective The Bait Fridge to create mind-bending experiences which push the boundaries of a musical performance, incorporating abstract narratives which drive the show, handmade costumes out of reclaimed materials, choreographed dances and theatrics, and immersive live projections.
