Sydney electronic trio Mansionair have dropped a cinematic new track that explores loneliness and distant love, ‘Astronaut (Something About Your Love).’
Extending from the band’s previous magic, including heartfelt single ‘Easier‘ and breakthrough track ‘Hold Me Down‘, this latest offering continues to effortlessly combine Jack Froggat’s intimate vocals with Lachlan Bostock’s slick production and Alex Nicholls’ intricate beats with effortless synergy.
Driven by a warm bass and ricochetting beat, ‘Astronaut (Something About Your Love)’ is a dance track that draws you in to listen closely. Froggat’s gentle and expressive voice reaches over the wide expanses of sparse soundscapes to whisper contemplations about returning for love with honesty and purity. It’s this balance between huge electronica and soft songwriting that produces Mansionair’s understated and deliciously vulnerable grooves.
As part of their experimentations, Mansionair placed a microphone inside a piano and recorded all of the atmospheric sounds, collecting what Bostock describes as “Like what I imagined an astronaut felt as if he was looking back at Earth.”
They say that distance makes the heart grow fonder, and this track is out of this world. The band has also announced they’ll share their newest single and other new music along the East Coast this December. All info below and tickets on sale now.
