Having built a dedicated global fanbase with his unique blend of house music, today, Dom Dolla teams up with the equally adored and celebrated indie-electronic trio, Mansionair. The two worlds of these renowned Australian artists collide for a cinematic and kaleidoscopic journey titled ‘Strangers’, out now on Sweat It Out. With a driving beat, and Dom’s signature driving basslines, the record is amplified by the angelic vocals of Mansionair frontman Jack Froggatt – the delicate delivery conveying a sense of longing that is both raw and compelling from the outset.
Speaking on the collaboration, and how the record came together Dom shares “I’m so excited to finally get ‘Strangers’ out there into the world. The Mansionair guys and I met in Sydney just as the city was coming out of lockdown for the first time in 2020. When we met we instantly clicked. After writing a few ideas together they remembered an old vocal idea they had sitting on a hard drive they weren’t sure what to do with. As soon as I heard it I knew it had potential. I could hear big sweeping strings in my head and a big, progressive bassline to follow the vocal hook. I took the acapella into the studio the following week, not long after I had a demo to play at shows. As American touring opened up I began testing it out and playing it at shows and festivals, after seeing the crowd’s reaction I knew we were onto something really special. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do x.”
Echoing those sentiments, Mansionair continue: “We’re so eager to share this new collaboration with Dom Dolla. We met earlier in the year and just instantly clicked. As we were packing up at the end of the day, we showed Dom an early version of Strangers, it was pretty bare at the time, but we fleshed it out within a week and we’ve been loving it ever since. It’s a song about treading carefully with your words in the heat of a moment, and knowing your worth. We’re so excited for you to hear it.”
