Begun in 2014 as an invitation to Jack Froggatt to sing on a production hook-up between new friends Lachan Bostock and Alex Nicholls, Mansionair were known in the clubs of Paris and Brooklyn before they were an official entity. Froggatt had been traipsing his own folk songs around town when he met Bostock at a music festival. Recording his vocals for "Hold Me Down" separately, it was only when the song exploded online that Froggatt met Nicholls and dropped out of his first semester of university to form Mansionair proper.
Since, Mansionair has crossed the USA and Canada with Chvrches, toured with London Grammar, collaborated with Seattle duo Odesza on their single "Line Of Sight" (which climbed Billboard’s Alternative and Dance/Electronic charts earler in 2017) and amassed millions of views and streams on a sparse yet compelling offering of songs. Mansionair’s bristing track "Easier," released at the tail end of 2016, has now reached over 10 million streams on Spotify alone.
The group’s newest track "Violet City" is a highway drift between cold beats and wistful, earworm melody. Written on a visit to Los Angeles, the track is steeped in the pace and aloofness of the city. Froggatt says the song came from feeling out of control in a foreign place and realising he needed to let go in order to find creative flow. “It’s about finding yourself stranded in a place you don’t want to be, trying to reach a goal that seems to be out of reach.”
