Sydney trio Mansionair have returned to the air with an ethereal new tune ‘Easier’, which sees the band explore and nudge sonic boundaries like never before.
Delicate and restrained instrumentation swirl and whisper into chorus, before heavy synths drive the song into combustion and raw energy. Written in the living room of producer/guitarist Lachlan’s house, ‘Easier’ was loosely inspired by a scene from Sofia Coppola’s seminal film, ‘Lost In Translation’.
“Easier is written for the moments you find yourself lying on your bed staring at the ceiling and wondering if things will change. It explores the endless piles of questions we can find ourselves asking those around us and the frustration of feeling like you’re going nowhere,” explains Mansionair vocalist Jack.
‘Easier’ is the first single to be lifted from the band’s forthcoming debut record, slated for release in 2017. It follows wildly-loved tunes including, ‘Hold Me Down’, ‘Pick Me Up’ and ‘Speak Easy’. To celebrate and share the new music, Mansionair have announced a series of single launch dates around the country in Nov/Dec, where they’ll perform unheard material for the first time, in their biggest bandrooms to date. These are going to be some special shows.
