SONG FOR THE WEEKEND – Pick Me Up by Mansionair

A song that completely reinvents the meaning of beautiful, creating a whole new standard for ambient indie-rock. The subtle bass, piano and stunning vocals initiate the piece, before soon beginning to intertwine with orchestral pieces and samples, bringing you into a climactic whirl of sound that is simply irresistible to listen to. Previously we shared ‘Hold Me Down’ by Mansionair, and ‘Pick Me Up’ is equal if not superior to this in its unrelentingly exquisite musical experience; will secure Mansionair as genius in your mind on first listen, if they aren’t already. Comparisons have been drawn between this and alt-J and Wild Beasts, which are certainly truthful, yet the atmosphere in ‘Pick Me Up’ is so special that it just can’t be compared. One that’s hard to forget once you’ve listened.
