Flaunt Premiere x Weekend Recall | Peach Tree Rascals "Mango"

by Hannah Jackson

Bay Area natives Peach Tree Rascals are back at it again, but this time from a sunnier spot. The five-piece indie band spent the end of last month relocating from San Jose to Los Angeles, documenting their moving process for Flaunt.

The band is celebrating their monumental move with their sonic single and brightly-hued music video for “Mango,” (directed by Rascals member Jorge Olazaba) a perfect end of summer bop. Laden with youthful animations, the video shows the boys’ day in Santa Cruz, which was spent doing wholesome activities such as chasing birds and breakdancing, and is sure to leave viewers with smiles plastered on their faces.

“‘Mango’ is about creating positive thoughts even on the worst of days. We live in a world where the pressure put on us to do something we don’t want is too common. We want this song to be a reminder to people that this is your world and you are the author of your own story,” the group says of their newest in their recent string of singles. “The song is about escaping from the negative things happening in the world and reminding us that its optimism and happiness that drives us forward. ‘Mango’ captures the true essence of what PTR is all about.”

Check out the group’s Flaunt exclusive weekend recall—which makes even the mundanity of moving look fun—as well as the infectiously fun video for “Mango” below.

Joseph was the last to move. This is him struggling to building his bed. Tarrek walked in the room to provide "moral support."

We'd like to think we know what we're doing here.

We had set up the mini basketball hoop before unpacking everything else because we like focus on the important things of life.
