Australian trio, Mansionair release their latest single “Astronaut (Something About Your Love)” – out today on Glassnote. Produced by the band, mixed by Eric J (Flume, Nick Murphy) and premiered today on Beats 1 Radio, “Astronaut” is a genre-splitting shot from the soul; as playful as it is a sincere exploration of loneliness and distant affections.

Producer/guitarist Lachlan Bostock describes the creation of the beginning suite of otherworldly harmonics, “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.”

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.  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.
