Raised in Stockport, multi-talented newcomer Shango SK takes cues from the melting pot of sounds that he’s been surrounded with growing-up.
Citing Manchester legends Oasis as one of his main influences, he’s also quick to list Future and Bon Iver as guiding forces too.
His eclectic taste filters down into his own music and it’s even more evident on debut single “Innocent”, a song which sees him dismissing negativity as he fights for his path to success. He’s putting everything into this.
“Innocent” is about a relationship that has run its course. On the track Shango documents the difficult conversations and realisations he’s having about how this one ended. Mutual frustration, a lack of support and understanding all come into play, but it’s being boxed-in and likened to her exes which really speeds up the decay.
