Australian indie-electronic trio Mansionair brought a heavy dose of atmospheric harmony to Union Stage Friday night. The third stop of the Alt Nation’s Advanced Placement Tour, featuring Mansionair (@Mansionair), Mikky Ekko (@mikkyekko) and NoMBe (@NoMBeMusic), was a showcase of what’s next for alternative music.

As you can see on Setlist.fm, Mansionair began their show with “Hold Me Down,” the song they first recorded in 2014 when singer Jack Froggatt joined guitarist Lachlan Bostock and drummer Alex Nicholls to form a band. They eventually signed to Glassnote Records and recorded “Easier,” which they performed in the middle of their set.

Mansionair also performed “Line of Sight,” their collaboration with Odesza, toward the end of the show. The gents closed their set with “Astronaut (Something About Your Love),” their latest single. Jack’s smooth vocals had the female-heavy crowd swaying and swooning.

Listen to the latest by Mansionair on Soundcloud:

Singles and remixes have proven enough to build a fan base for the young band, as Mansionair has yet to release a full-length album. Shortly after forming, the group rode the Soundcloud wave to build an international following.
Alt Nation’s Advanced Placement Tour continues tonight, April 16, in Detroit with Mansionair, Mikky Ekko, and NoMBe. Catch the tour before it wraps in San Diego on April 26!
