Mansionair release their first solo single for 2017, announce east-coast dates
The Sydney three-piece return with Astronaut (Something About Your Love).
Sydney three-piece Mansionair are one of Australia's most spectacular electronic acts, having charmed the country with a series of incredible singles since way back in 2015. This year, however, the group have been fairly quiet on a solo-level, only contributing to ODESZA's dreamy, album-launching single Line Of Sight towards the middle of the year – a single which they beautifully stripped back for the Thirty Days Of Yes compilation two weeks back. That said, now they're back, with a brand new single entitled Astronaut (Something About Your Love) and a round of east-coast dates accompanying the single's release. Astronaut continues to showcase Mansionair's brilliant combination of smooth electronic and indie-pop, with Jack Froggatt's constantly-impressive vocals swirling above a dark and gloomy production which packs quite a punch with its meaty synth melodies and deep bass. "We shoved a microphone deep inside a piano and recorded all the atmospheric noises that came out," says Mansionair's producer and guitarist Lachlan Bostock on how the single came about. "Like what I imagined an astronaut felt as if he was looking back at Earth."
The single comes with a bunch of east-coast tour dates for the trio, who are renowned for their spectacular live show. Check out the dates below, and click through the poster for tickets.
