Mango X MathMan enlisted Lisa Hannigan to feature on the lead single, 'Deep Blue' off their upcoming debut album, Casual Work.
Today, Mango X MathMan release 'Deep Blue', the lead single from their debut album, Casual Work, one of the most anticipated Irish albums of 2019.
Hailing from Dublin City, Mango X MathMan teamed up with Irish music icon, Lisa Hannigan, in a sonic love letter to the city where they were born and raised. On the track, MathMan blends the cinematic orchestration performed by Ireland’s world famous Crash Ensemble with cutting-edge, contemporary music production. The result is a distinct sound, unlike anything MXM has released before.
Mango’s lyricism weaves a poetic narrative of the beauty and the flaws of Dublin city and life here for young people. The gentle power of Lisa Hannigan’s haunting vocals cut through in the chorus, making ‘Deep Blue’ a powerful and balanced song.
Having established themselves as one of the most highly regarded hip hop acts in Ireland with one of the most talked-about live shows, Mango X MathMan continue to push the musical and creative boundaries of what is expected from an Irish music group. Their new album reportedly sees them break further artistic ground with a more musically-rich, mature, and exciting creation. Casual Work – over three years in the making – will be released on 8 November 2019.
