Mandy Gurung is probably best known as front-woman of Brooklyn-trio The Rungs, who formed back in 2012, and have so far released, well, not a great deal. This week Mandy has stepped out in a, sort of, solo style, with a new project, Song Journal. As Mandy herself explains, it is, “a place for me to share raw demos, continuous and open like a journal.” A place for Mandy to explore the rougher, less produced sound that previously she found too raw to release.

Mandy has also this week shared the first offering from the project, New Town. The track explores the idea of fleeing your problems and heading to a new life in a new town, as Mandy sings, “all my mistakes I’ve left them behind in a place you won’t find them, every sidewalk is a new step.” This fantasy new life is tempting, a chance to be a whole new you, even if ultimately you can’t change the person inside. Musically, it’s a raw slice of grungy power-pop, nodding to the likes of Diet Cig or Frankie Cosmos. As Mandy says of this new project,“I want to let these songs exist with all the errors and nuances that make them special to me.”Honest, raw, and very exciting, Mandy’s Song Journal might be something special to a lot more people than just herself.
