SXSW Band of the Day: Mansions on the Moon
  • WEDNESDAY, MARCH 07, 2012

  • Posted by: Don Saas

Unless M83 is the artist in question, the current trend for lo-fi electronic acts is introspection not bombastic melodies and exultant celebrations of pop sensibilities. Encompassing atmosphere and pacifying waves of ambience are all the rage. Sometimes, we need a little pop music and at this year's SXSW Music Festival, Baeble will be providing an artist whose ear for catchy electronic pop is spot-on. Mansions on the Moon are an electronic act in the vein of greats like Cut Copy and the Postal Service and they'll be rocking our showcase in Austin.
With one EP under their belt, Lightyears, Mansions on the Moon are already making waves and it's only a matter of time before they smash their crest on your shore (does that sound vaguely sexual to anyone else?). They may only have an EP, but Lightyears is an impressive debut and tracks like "Leaves Fall" and "Desert Island" pop like the best of the synthpop world. If you're going to be in Austin for SXSW, make sure you come on by and catch Mansions on the Moon so you can say you knew who they were before the rest of the electronic world blogs about it.
