Reliably informed

Who are you?
My name is Jack Angus Golightly, but my friends call me Jango. 

What is it you do?
I write, produce, play music and share my world with people on the internet.

How long have you been doing it?
I’ve been playing drums since I was two years old, but Jango Flash as a project has been developing for almost three years now… magic number! 

What inspires you?
Upon reflection I don’t actively listen to a lot of music for inspiration. I’m quite removed and in my own bubble a lot of the time, but I’m an empath, so I often find myself driven to write in the shoes of somebody very close to me. I like to illustrate the times in their lives that changed them (good or bad) and bring them to life. Years ago I would internally dote on the beauty of life’s subtleties and wanted to express these types of things in my work. I can still fully appreciate my surroundings or a serendipitous ‘rom com’ esq encounter, but certain accounts in my life have in part tarnished my ability to romanticise the world the same way. Over the past three years I’ve found myself discussing life’s extremities in my writing, and I find that to be way more refreshing. 

Tell us about your music.
It’s loud. 

What have you got coming up in the future?
We will be releasing the first single off our debut album in February / March time at the latest. It’s called ‘My Mercedes’ and we have a music video dropping for it at the same time. I’m proud of this track not only down to the story behind it, but because I’ve rediscovered the magic in recording with a full band. It’s the first true mark of Jango Flash as a complete unit, you can hear all of our energy in this track, and that’s important. 

Where can people find out more about you? 
Generally I’m on Instagram and facebook so follow me on there! You can also sign up to our mailing list as well as buy Jango Flash limited edition products on the website too.
