Mansionair - Easier (The Remixes)
Mansionair are pleased to announce Easier – The Remixes out January 27th on Glassnote. Along with the announcement, they’re sharing the first remix by Electric Mantis via ThisSongIsSick. “We've been really big fans of Electric Mantis for a while now. I remember finding out about him from Reddit a few years ago when he got reposted by Djemba Djemba. I fell in love instantly so it's really exciting to see him work on something of ours a few years later. It's a nice collision of two worlds,” explains multi-instrumentalist Lachlan Bostock.
The original single, “Easier,” was released last fall. The track, written after watching Lost in Translation, was recorded in the guys’ living rooms, bedrooms and garages with Alex Nicholls’ drums originally recorded on his phone. Of the song, singer Jack Froggatt said, “It was an easy one to write and then producer Eric J (Flume, Nick Murphy fka Chet Faker) was the fire at the end that brought it all together.” Bostock adds, “The string arrangement comes together at the end acting as the release of the pain or struggle.”
Mansionair have had a whirlwind two years with their songs being streamed over 17 million times on Spotify. They released their song “Hold Me Down” in early 2014 to widespread praise for the mesmerizing and genre-defying track from tastemakers including NME, The Guardian, Stereogum, BBC Radio 1 and Pigeons and Planes, who declared the band an “Act to Watch.” The song caught the attention of CHVRCHES who then released the Hold Me Down EP on their own Goodbye Records imprint, which led Mansionair to open for their Every Open Eye Tour. Mansionair has sold out headline shows, played the coveted Laneway Festival and Splendour in the Grass, and shared stages with the likes of Florence and the Machine, Alt-J, The Temper Trap and BANKS.
