On the Spotlight // Manganas Garden

Manganas Garden is an up-and-coming band that I stumbled into one night on Youtube. “Slow It Down”, the first song of theirs I heard, had me floored. It introduced me to the rest of their songs on Solar Satisfaction, which continued to charm me. The Gothenburg natives produce music that blends disco-funk with indie-pop to create a modern funk groove that does not seem retrospective, like much of disco music nowadays. Instead, it brings to the table an element of soul that is unique to Manganas Garden and that differentiates them from the rest of the bands attempting to join the modern disco wave.
