First headline shows since 2019
Sydney trio Mansionair today share the second cut from their forthcoming album due later in the year. The new song, ‘Don’t Wait’ arrives just in time for the band’s imminent run of dates along the east coast – their first run of headline shows since August 2019.
The perfect combination of Mansionair’s trademark dreamy soundscapes, an irresistible beat and a silky groove, ‘Don’t Wait’ was co-produced by the band and accomplished UK producer, Jon Gilmore (The 1975). It follows on from the release of the epic ‘MORE’ in February and arrives with a poetic music video from Sydney creative Courtney Brookes that is sure to appeal to the dancer in us all.

On the meaning behind the song, singer Jack Froggatt shares:
“This song is about confronting the demise of a relationship, letting go of past versions of yourself – mistakes and all – and finding freedom in that fact. It’s a song asking for honesty from your partner and from yourself, to rip the band-aid off and not stretch out an inevitable ending. It’s the joy in moving on and embracing the great unknown.”
Coming off tours with some of the biggest acts in the world (Florence and the Machine, CHVRCHES), Mansionair released their debut album Shadowboxer in March 2019. A triple j feature album, Shadowboxer was written and self-produced by the band, the culmination of a journey that started with a viral hit single and led to high profile collaborations, including a Grammy-nomination for their single with Odesza in ‘Line of Sight’, gold ARIA-accredited tracks in ‘Easier’ and ‘Astronaut (Something About Your Love)’, Billboard charting singles and over 250 million streams across DSPs.
Following the release of ‘Don’t Wait’, Mansionair will return to local stages this June and July, with a run of shows across Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. First shows in Melbourne and Sydney have already sold-out, with second dates on-sale now.
