Already rolling out quickly via ALT Nation’s ‘Advanced Placement’, Sydney trio Mansionair are Back with an Instant sounding new single “Astronaut (Something About Your Love)”! A genre-splitting shot from the soul and as playful as it is a sincere exploration of loneliness and distant affections.
At the tail end of 2016, you’ll recall Mansionair released the bristling track, “Easier,” which has now reached 13 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 the Alternative and Dance/Electronic Charts and has amassed millions of streams.
In the last few years, Mansionair has been praised for their mesmerizing and genre-defying music from tastemakers including The Fader, Stereogum, NME, The Guardian, BBC Radio 1 and Pigeons and Planes, who declared the band an “Act To Watch.” Soon after the band’s first release they were handpicked by CHVRCHES to open 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.
“We shoved a microphone deep inside a piano and recorded all the atmospheric noises that came out. Like what I imagined an astronaut felt as if he was looking back at Earth.”–Lachlan Bostock/Mansionair (on the new single)
