Angie McMahon – ‘Letting Go’

Prior to the Sydney and Melbourne shows, the Melbourne-based McMahon will play solo headline dates in Los Angeles, New York City and London.

McMahon devoted more than a year to the creation of Light, Dark, Light Again. The bulk of the work was done in Durham, North Carolina, where McMahon linked up with Grammy-nominated producer and songwriter Brad Cook (Bon Iver, Waxahatchee, Snail Mail). She also put in hours with Alex O’Gorman and Bonnie Knight back in Melbourne/Naarm.

Regarding the anthemic new single, McMahon said, “‘Letting Go’ is a place to keep the lessons that I’ll keep on needing. Reminders to go easy and gentle, be imperfect, let things leave. The learning is never-ending.” The music video was filmed on Bunurong and Wurundjeri land and co-directed by McMahon and Mike Ridley.
