Australian Based Artist Agung Mango Releases: ALMOST FAMOUS
Agung Mango, returns with his latest single, ‘ALMOST FAMOUS’ featuring Naarm-based Melody Napoleon.
Influenced by Mos Def’s ‘There Is a Way’, ‘ALMOST FAMOUS’ taps into a similar idea that embracing life’s ups and downs supports the best version of becoming yourself.
In Agung’s words,
“ALMOST FAMOUS is self-explanatory, reflecting the struggle of pursuing a dream with lyrics that convey the bittersweet feeling of being so close to achieving your goals, yet still facing obstacles. The song captures the gritty reality of chasing success and the determination and resilience it takes to keep going despite setbacks.”
Since his debut in 2017, Naarm / Melbourne-based artist Agung Mango has feverishly worked to establish himself as one of the trailblazers in Australia’s underground rap scene.
