Friday the 13th isn’t always unlucky. Quite the contrary. Aussie’s Lachlan Bostock, Jack Froggat and Alex Nicholls (Mansionair) premiered Electric Mantis’ version of their fall release “Easier” on ThisSonglsSick this past Friday. Feki, French Braids, Lower Spectrum and iljusWifmo‘s musical adaptations of “Easier” go public on Jan. 27 via Glassnote Records.
“I fell in love instantly, so it’s really exciting to see him (Electric Mantis) work on something of ours a few years later. It’s a nice collision of two worlds,” said Bostock.
In 2013, Future Pop DJ Djemba Djemba reposted Wyatt Pearson’s (Electric Mantis) tune “Flips and Flops, Drips and Drops” accelerating Pearson’s debut on the Reddit homepage with the Internet handle yazmattaz. “The Natural State” native skedaddled into the hearts of Jai Wolf, Mija, Big Wild and Illenium on tour. Electric Mantis was even commissioned to create official re-edits for Porter Robinson’s “Hear The Bells,” Gramatik’s “Native Son” and Giraffage’s “Impression of You.”
Wyatt’s rendering of “Easier” is a little over four minutes of organic sound creation and nostalgic piano chords so as to heighten Froggatt’s therapeutic voice. Experience it below:
