“Huge guitar riffs” The Line Of Best Fit
“Making an explosive mark” Clash


A thrilling indication of the self-proclaimed ‘kamikaze-pop’ outfit’s glittering potential. ‘My Mercedes’ marks the band’s frenetic introduction onto the emerging scene. Having locked themselves away in their riverside lair writing and recording a batch of new material over the last twelve months.

Fronted by producer and songwriter Jack Angus Golightly, the band’s feverish indie licks have already won early acclaim across the press landscape via key indie titans The Line Of Best Fit and Clash, whilst spins on the BBC Radio 1,BBC 6 Music and Radio X airwaves have certainly solidified their rising status as one of the North East’s hottest prospects.

Behind The Track

Discussing the context behind the track, charismatic front man Golightly explained: “‘My Mercedes’ was written as a dialogue between two best friends at bad places in their lives. My mum was a single mother travelling the world with my brother and working three jobs. Along the road she ended up in an oppressive relationship prior to meeting my dad, yet fortunately found the strength to kick back, protect my brother and get herself out of it. It was my mum’s friend that gave her the nickname “Mercedes” because she found elegance and strength in the way she carried herself through life. Whenever she writes to my mum she always starts with, “Dear my Mercedes”. So I opened the song like a letter, and finished the rest in a night. This pandemic has ramped up the tension in people’s lives to breaking point. Domestic abuse figures skyrocketed, and I ended up hearing horror stories from friends of mine. This is close to home and something that I wanted to discuss. No one should have to live with abuse and should always have support to find strength and speak out.”
Jango Flash’s ‘My Mercedes’ is out July 28th and will be available on all digital platforms.
