April always tends to be a very fine month for live music, partly due to all the acts traveling through California due to Coachella, partly due to the fact that, well, it’s spring! Everyone’s touring! April 25th has been circled a million times on my calendar. Not only do I get to see NoMBe swoon the crowd again with his trailblazing electro-soul at Popscene, but Australian indie electro trio Mansionair will be headlining the sold out San Francisco show, too! The casual music listener probably knows Mansionair for their spectacular collaboration with Odesza and WYNNE, Line Of Sight, but us music heads all know how amazing Mansionair’s music has been over the past few years. Songs like Easier and Speak Easy have melted us time and time again, and now they’ve revealed a new alt electro jam named Violet City. There’s a slinky vibe to the beat scuttling, electro-bass propulsive pop/electro hybrid that evokes the likes of SAFIA, Glass Animals, Wild Beasts, or even Alt-J, but Violet City is undeniably a Mansionair masterpiece with its sleek falsettos and its cinematic, expansive production. Add in a whole lot of whimsical eastern string flair and we have another compelling Mansionair winner. Mansionair hits the road this week with Mikky Ekko and NoMBe for Sirius XM Alt Nation’s Advanced Placement US Tour. Keep up with details on Mansionair’s website, here.
