Yesterday we accepted that we wouldn't be taking our headphones off all day, so we could listen to Manchado's debut album 'Pegasus' which was released on November 14th. This is the kind of album that will make you want to listen again and again. We've been huge fans of Manchado from the start, it's safe to say that we will always be fans without a doubt, his music is a creation of sound and dance that is unlike any other. While in his statement below he's mentioned a few different elements that inspire his work, from an outside perspective, whether or not he is inspired by those things, he's created something that we have not seen anywhere else. His work is unique, it's special, and it's something that deserves to be heard. Below we've included a small exceprt from Manchado himself, where he talks about his album and what has driven his creativity to this point.
"Colombian pop singer Manchado is releasing his debut album Pegasus on November 14th. His sound is reminiscent of 90s/early 2000s boyband grooves, mixed contemporary hip hop and bits and pieces of video games and anime, brought to life by his one of a kind colorful personal style.
The album is sonically diverse as it ranges from upbeat pop moments to acoustic ballads. This is a coming of age story completely written and produced by Manchado. It highlights the difficulties of growing up as teenager and becoming and adult but yet also talks about the strength that one develops, its character, it's almost like you are developing your wings, learning how to fly like flying horse, therefore the tittle of the album Pegasus.
