A transportive, swelling number, ‘Pick Me Up’ is the perfect summer track from Sydney trio Mansionair– with layer upon layer of intricate, lush sound building towards a buldging anthem. Co-produced and mixed by Tony Buchen, ‘Pick Me Up’ saw the band experimenting with a brand new writing technique.
‘For so long we’d written music on our laptops, this was the first time we sat and talked for a while with a piano in the room and just played music together. That doesn’t sound like a big deal, but for a somewhat electronic band, it’s a big adjustment. We didn’t record anything until we were completely convinced that the song itself was finished.’
Having spent much of the last year on the road, Mansionair are just finishing a two-month long touring run with Chvrches across the US, UK and Europe. The trip included a handful of the band’s own headline shows and saw them perform more than 40 gigs in 10 weeks.
