06 APRIL 2018 (Toronto, ON) – Sydney-based, Grammy nominated, trio Mansionair return with their brand new single, “Violet City”. Available online now via Glassnote Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, the track is a powerful and poignant song driven by a propulsive electronic bass, buoyant drums and lead singer Jack Froggatt’s note perfect falsetto.


“Violet City” is reminiscent of left-of-centre UK acts such as Wild Beasts and Alt-J, blurring the lines between electronic stylings and traditional pop structures, but with added cinematic and expansive production. The new single adds to this winning formula, boasting a transcendent chorus, with sweeping eastern style strings overlaid onto the propulsive electronics.


Mansionair was born when multi-instrumentalist and producer, Lachlan Bostock joined with folk singer Jack Froggatt and jazz drummer Alex Nicholls to collaborate on “Hold Me Down”. The chemistry between the trio was instant and the song hit 1M views in just two months.

At the tail end of 2016, Mansionair released bristling track “Easier”, which has now reached over 12M 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 was nominated for a Grammy. On most recent single “Astronaut (Something About Your Love)”, Mansionair have broken through onto the Alternative Charts. Praise of “Astronaut (Something About Your Love)”:


“The Sydney trio have a way with turning low-key soothing beats into something unexpected; "Astronaut" continues in that sweet spot.” – TIME


“From those heavenly vocals to that smooth driving beat, slick production and the vocodered chorus, I   am loving everything about this track, and it’s also just the first taste of a new album the boys have   planned for release over the coming months.” – Acid Stag


“A sublime piece of indie-electronic instrumentation complemented with a pacific vocal topline, the   Australian trio even channel some Daft Punk inspiration with a funk-tinged vocoder in the chorus.”  - Dancing Astronaut
