Mansionair

Sydney-based trio Mansionair return with their single ‘Astronaut (Something About Your Love),’ declared by Dancing Astronaut, “a sublime piece of indie-electronic instrumentation complemented with a pacific vocal topline…”

The song starts with a suite of otherworldly harmonics, “We shoved a microphone deep inside a piano and recorded all the atmospheric noises that came out,” Bostock tells. “Like what I imagined an astronaut felt as if he was looking back at Earth.” It’s the juxtaposition between Froggatt’s intimate vocal delivery and the geographic stretch of Mansionair’s production that makes them so intriguing. Another way to view their compositions might be as micro explorations of the grand internal; miniatures writ large. “I love that stream-of-conscious style of songwriting,” Froggatt says. “As though you’re sitting in the back of a party on a couch and you’re just in your own head, overthinking everything.”

Everything began for Mansionair in 2014 when singer Jack Froggatt accepted an invitation to top-line a suite of production beats by producer/guitarist Lachlan Bostock and drummer/producer Alex Nicholls. “Hold Me Down,” a mélange of ethereal falsetto and ambient-synth-pop, hit one million views in just two months, brought together the individual talents of each musician and solidified the formation of the three-piece band now known as Mansionair.  Soon after, the band signed to Glassnote Records and were handpicked by genre-bending trio CHVRCHES to open on their headline tour across the USA, UK, and Europe. Mansionair went on to join Alt-J and Florence & The Machine on the road, most recently wrapping up a tour with London Grammar. At the tail end of 2016, Mansionair released bristling track ‘Easier’, which has now reached over 12 million streams, a testament to the fan-base they’ve created in such a short period of time. While working on their latest offering, the band collaborated with Seattle duo Odesza on their lead single ‘Line Of Sight’, which has since climbed Billboard’s Alternative and Dance/Electronic charts and has amassed millions of streams.
