Music | News | Dan Mangan Announces European Festival Shows & Shares Video For ‘Fogetery’


By Kieran Webber

Dan Mangan has announced a string of summer European festival shows with a heart-breaking, beautiful new video for ‘Forgetery’, starring Rainn Wilson from The Office (US).

‘Forgetery’ is taken from last year’s highly praised Dan Mangan + Blacksmith album ‘Club Meds’, released in January 2015 via City Slang.

Andrew Huculiak, who directed the clip, explains his vision for it: “The metaphors and meanings are all but obscured behind a video that most viewers would experience as “a montage of life”. The vignettes stand on their own as visual cues to the theme of simplicity/innocence vs complexity/consumption. This very idea directly relates to Forgetery’s lyrics. A grand moment — an epiphany — in hiding. We are beckoning the viewer to “zoom out” on simple snapshots. This montage gives the the viewer an opportunity to see the bigger picture if she/he chooses to partake. It is an experience that gives what is put in.”
