Mansionair have dropped ‘MORE’, the lead single from their forthcoming second record. It’s the group’s first new song since ‘Guillotine’, their 2020 collaboration with NoMBe.
The song drops alongside a music video, which arrived today (February 26). The clip follows a bearded traveller exploring various locations and features appearances from the band members themselves. Watch it below:
Per a press release, lead singer Jack Froggatt explained that the track originated on a writing retreat after the band released their 2019 record, ‘Shadowboxer’.
“We decided to get outta the city and head down to the south coast of Sydney for a writing trip. It was there we wrote the first iteration of ‘MORE’,” he said.
“‘MORE arrived’ on the final day and began as a concept about a character completely delusional with their desire for more
“We started playing around in new time signatures trying to figure out where it fit best, eventually landing on 5/4 which has this feeling of never really resolving and always feeling tense.
“It was such a fun song to write, collecting modern-day problems and putting them into the song. It’s part tongue-in-cheek but was a real awakening in seeing myself in that character.”
There is no word yet on when Mansionair will release their as-yet-untitled second album.
