Live Gig Video: Mansionair share blindingly brilliant promo for ‘Astronaut (Something About Your Love)’, filmed in Berlin

By on Tuesday, 20th February 2018 at 4:00 pm

It felt pretty special to have been present when Australian trio Mansionair premiere new single ‘Astronaut (Something About Your Love)’ to the crowds watching them at the Woolly Mammoth at BIGSOUND 2017 in Brisbane last September. They were so great, I saw them on the second and third evenings of the Australian emerging music festival last year. While they’ve solidified their fanbase in Oz, since I saw them, they’ve been making strides in extending their reach far beyond their home country. Last November, they headed to Europe and the UK, appearing at the Great Escape‘s First Fifty gig series in London in advance of their appearance at the annual 3-day festival in Brighton in May and this Sofar Session in London.

They also headed to the Continent to play a series of shows. During their down time over there, they filmed this promo in Berlin for ‘Astronaut’. As stated in the title of this post, it’s blindingly brilliant. Watch below as Jack, Lachlan and Alex perform the song in an appropriately icy white room with at times disorientating lights and shadows, Jack’s soulful vocals breaking through and adding a welcome humanity to the performance. Just like Mansionair’s Grammy-nominated collaboration with Odesza on ‘Line of Sight’, The song has received airplay on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation and approval from the satellite station’s finicky fans.

We Are Scientists have revealed their humorous promo video for their cover of Berlin’s ‘Take Your Breath Away’. I hope I don’t have to tell you what ’80s film this video is a homage to? Here’s to hoping, anyway…

The cover appears on the duo’s ‘Business Casual’ EP, now available from 100% Records. In case you missed it, we posted a stream of the EP last month. Like it, then buy it.

Live Gig Video: Brandt Brauer Frick and friends at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin

By on Thursday, 22nd September 2011 at 2:00 pm

The German c.sides label gave 10 diverse artists and bands the task to create exclusive new works that all shared one goal: to make a humble contribution toward making this world a better, more just and beautiful place simply by doing what they can do best: to make art and create music, and to embark on a mission of re-exploring the notion of meaning and impact in and through music. Artists had full freedom in their creative process, with the label only providing general guidelines regarding the project’s concept and an intended timeframe of 10 to 15 minutes, encouraging artists to work with different musical means than they usually would.

The performance we present to you today is of the song ‘Schwan’ (“swan” in German) and features Berlin’s Brandt Brauer Frick, London producer Gold Panda, Cologne, Germany electronica artist Glitterbug, Enas Massalha, Casper Clausen and Mads Brauer of Copenhagen band Efterklang Jasmina Maschina, Khan, Eliad Wagner, Christian Löffler and John Kameel Farah, all playing together on their contribution to c.sides’ 2 CD release on Monday. Details of the release are here.
