Lachlan Bostock and Alex Nicholls are Mansionair, a pretty new production duo from Sydney, i.e – they only joined Facebook on January 2nd. They’ve just one track to their name so far unsurprisingly. ‘Hold Me Down’ is a good first impression.
Featuring indie-rock band Revier on vocals and I’m going to say guitar too at least, the track has a similar slow-burning atmposphere to London Grammar. The vocals share a similar soulful tone to Hannah Reid too and look how well that’s worked out for them. The track unfolds in a space between subtle electronic techniques and full-band dynamics.
