Off the back of 10 years of relentless touring, Mano Le Tough, real name Niall Mannion, took the opportunity at his home in Zurich to pen his new album described by Pampa as:
“Ambivalence of the current moment with wistful streaks of unguarded optimism”.
The album is a diverse offering of pop, hip-hop, and disco beats, plus Mano’s own guitars and vocals. In the first released single, ‘No Road Without a Turn’, he ventures into the depths of dub disco music.
When asked about the new single, Mano explained:
“It’s about the fact that no situation in life stays the same forever, but it’s also about being in the moment and accepting the change.” Musically, it’s “quite representative of the instrumentation on the album, and although it doesn’t have a vocal, the guitar part is quite lyrical.”
Following previous releases on the Pampa imprint ‘Ahsure EP’ in 2017 and a two-track EP with label owner DJ Koze for Record Store Day this year, ‘At the Moment’ comes out on August 20th.
