Sydney trio Mansionair dropped one of their best songs yet late last year in the form of genre bending Easier, an ambient atmospheric aria with unexpected future flickering plumes of electronic magnificence. That pensive beauty is the subjected to some Electric Mantis wizardry as the Alaska native gives Easier a breathtaking makeover, the producer’s contribution to a new five track remix package for the song due out January 27th. Electric Mantis’ Easier flickers and stutters, trickles and drips, building its way to a shiver inducing future bass, melodic bass, and chill trap drop that near leaves me numb afterwards from sensory overload. Hit after hit of endorphin washes over me with every warble and chop.

Mansionair has unleashed a music video accompaniment for their latest single today, and the Sydney trio offers up some digital artistry on the captivating clip. Easier’s video, directed by Matthew Thorne, bridges the gap between raw and human and the digital and effected by “utilizing 3D mapping technology to explore the language that occurs in the space between what is earthly and common, and what is created and artificial.” It’s a perfect match for the song, considering Easier’s spacious electronic shimmers and how deeply they contrast with Mansionair’s poignant moving vocals. Easier sees Mansionair taking a future bass like approach that reminds me of production work by the producers like Flume and What So Not. It’s grand and eloquent, a stunner of an addition to their fine repertoire, one that I hope will culminate in a debut album soon. Easier can be purchased from various outlets, here.

British singer songwriter Amy Milner may have the most beautiful voice I’ve encountered all year. It’s husky and deep, like Florence Welch but more supple smooth. Though Amy has been steadily proving herself a talent in Britain, it’s only now that I’ve finally caught wind of the musician, thanks to new single Easier. This grandly building, regal clattering indie ballad is a spectacularly soaring experience. It’s powerful and raw but breathtakingly beautiful, seamlessly blending baroque pop with indietronica. Easier is out now on iTunes via Aesop.

Earlier this year, I stumbled upon music by Netherlands based duo Weval. Their experimental electronic sounds immediately brought to mind another producer I’ve been in love with for years, namely, Caribou. Last month, Weval released their Easier EP, and the title track is a must listen treat. As before, I’m reminded of Caribou with the airy, breezy production and weightless, spacious atmosphere. Soulful vocals and dazzling texture permeate the gorgeous song. Revisit the previously featured Gimme Some below if you missed it some months back. Or go listen to the terrific Easier EP in full, here.

Los Angeles alt rock band Nico Vega dropped a great new single recently titled Easier.  It’s the second single from their coming sophomore album We Are The Art. It’s a bright, energetic, magnetic track. 

“It’s socially conscious music about human struggle and rising up,” singer Aja Vokman explains. “It’s written from the underdog’s point of view, which we can really relate to. We’ve always gotten along with people who have had a lot of struggle.”

Here’s the mariachi video for the single… Nico Vega will be supporting Imagine Dragons on tour in America come the new year.
