Mansionair & Kim Tee – Next High

Sydney trio Mansionair will put out their sophomore album Happiness, Guaranteed on 29 April. The 15-track record will be made up of two halves. Its first half will consist of tracks that only feature the three musicians themselves. The second half will focus on Mansionair’s many recent collaborations with the likes of Dom Dolla, NoMBE, Yahtzel and Claptone & Like Mike. New single Next High will be on that second half as well.

Next High sees the Aussie troupe team up with Minneapolis-based producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist Kim Tee (real name: Hayley Briasco). Mansionair’s Jack Froggatt explains: β€œWe met Hayley backstage on the 2019 Laneway tour. She plays with Clairo and they always played directly after our set. So we kept running into her and catching each other’s performances. After keeping in touch over the years she sent us an idea she had for a song and the rest figured itself out.”

With its slick, bass-heavy groove, guitars drenched in reverb and sparkling synths, Next High is a laidback feel-good tune. In Froggatt’s words: β€œThe song attempts to capture that feeling of just being hopelessly obsessed with someone and not needing a reason to hang out with them.”
