Mansionair’s debut album ‘Shadowboxer’ has been a work in progress. The album was created over a three-year period between a garage in Sydney to a cabin in California.
“Shadowboxer is about acknowledging that we are often our own opponent, and learning to accept our inner shadows – the ones we try so hard to ignore. It’s a record about deciding to lift our gaze from the darkness and acknowledge the light that shapes us,” the members of Mansionair said in a statement.
“It bookends our first years of discovering who we are and what we wanted Mansionair to be, as we pushed through insecurities, uncertainties and moments of relief. It’s as much a diary of our first three years working together as friends as it is about making every mistake possible together.”
Over the journey Mansionair have clocked up an impressive number of YouTube views including over 7 million views for ‘Easier’ and 2 million for ‘Astronaut’, both which appear on ‘Shadowboxer’.
