Finnish fuzz rockers MANGOO (pronounced “man go”) will drop their forthcoming full-length, The Heat, via Small Stone next week. The Turku-based outfit’s third full-length boasts a wall of thick, fuzz-fueled guitars and hard-hitting drums with an added sprinkling of analog synth sounds. Combined they result in a sound truly the band’s own – someplace between grunge, classic heavy rock, and a progressive psychedelic spaciousness that refuses any and all boundaries of style between rock and metal and beyond.
In advance of its release MANGOO offers up the official new video for “Beyond The Sky”, streaming below. The captivating new clip was selected to be screened and compete in the Finnish Oulu Music Video Festival 2017. Offers the band of their latest Atte Heinonen-directed work, “Once again, director Atte Heinonen did an amazing job with the video. We are especially thankful for not having to appear in it at all. Atte and Juha [Koivisto] came up with an interesting and personal interpretation that gives the song a new dimension. We are also very grateful for Gidon Tannenbaum’s [Mother Kasabian] kick ass guest appearance on the track.”
Adds Atte Heinonen, “Tormenter is alluring. Tormenter is cunning. Tormenter is brutal. Tormenter is with us all. Can you find a key to your prison? The video to MANGOO‘s ‘Beyond The Sky’ is a grindhouse style story about three young women on a roadtrip that takes a strange turn. The soundtrack vibe of the song inspired me to make a cinematic video, actually more like a short film. We developed the idea during the summer of 2016, and the production started in the fall. All in all, we spent seven days shooting it. We built our own props and two sets of miniature models. Two of the locations where in an old clergy house dating from the 18th century. We got the whole thing done just in time for the Oulu Music Video Festival, where it was accepted into the domestic competition category. There it went up against 112 other videos selected from 402 entries. For a music video, this was quite a big chunk of work, but we got it packaged very nicely thanks to an amazing and dedicated team!”
