‘Fallout Shelter’ has such a chill vibe to it – I am obsessed! Can you tell us what the songwriting process looked like for this track?
102 Mangos: We don't really ever sit down and write anything ever. The words just kinda get chiseled out of the melody after a couple takes.
What is the story behind your band name? How did you come up with ‘102 Mangos’?
102 Mangos: 102 Mango Dr is actually the address of our first house together, and where we made a bunch of our first songs.
If your song could be in any movie or TV show, which one would you want it to be featured in?
102 Mangos: It would be cool to be the soundtrack of an Indie skate move like Mid-90's or a Pete Davidson coming of age movie, ie Big Time Adolescence. A lot of people think it should be the opening song in a Disney Channel movie...never sure if that's a compliment or not.
Who would you say have been some of your biggest inspirations?
102 Mangos: Yeek, Weezer, and Kid Cudi is definitely a big one.
What is a venue or city that you would love to perform at?
102 Mangos: The Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta would be really cool. That's just a seriously dope venue. It would be sick to perform in Frankfurt Germany too, just cuz we have a big following over there for whatever reason.
Are there any upcoming projects you could talk about?
102 Mangos: We do have a demo tape coming out eventually. We can't say too much about it, but it's gonna be really eclectic. Every song on there is super vibrant and different from the last.
