Mansions On The Moon
Somewhere Else Tonight

With So-Cal alt-pop troupe Mansions on the Moon‘s debut LP release right around the corner in October, our anticipation has been piquing towards the group like never before. A few weeks back, the tasteful pop purveyors dropped the first single from the album, “Don’t Tell”, and today they’re back with the latest offering from their impending self-titled long player: “Somewhere Else Tonight”. Whereas “Don’t Tell” rode a more subdued dance melody, “Somewhere Else Tonight” feels much more aimed towards the dancehall than almost anything we’ve covered from MotM in the past. Their cadence rides more agile and quick than most anything within their library thus far, feeding on an expansive synth and perhaps our favorite vocalist in the entire indie landscape to bolster the tune’s entire sonic atmosphere. Speaking about “Somewhere Else Tonight”, the crafty ensemble of skilled musicians stated: “We wrote Somewhere Else Tonight during our first few months in Los Angeles.  The chorus was inspired by our move from East to West Coast .  After we wrote the verses, the lyrics became a metaphor, not only for getting out of one’s comfort zone but also for returning to a childlike, imaginative perspective towards mundane everyday life.” That inspirative vibe is absolutely felt with every kick, clap and synth stab contained in this four-minute pop stride, so do yourself a favor and feel it above.
