Mansions on the Moon is an American band from Los Angeles, California.[1]

History[edit]

The group was formed by Ted Wendler on guitar and vocals, Ben Hazlegrove on keyboards, and Lane Shaw on drums. Both Shaw and Hazlegrove were also members of Pnuma Trio.[2]

In 2010, the group released the debut mixtape, Paradise Falls, presented by Diplo and DJ Benzi.[3] Hypetrak called the group one of the "most interesting recording artists to have emerged this year."[4] Paradise Falls includes collaborations with Xaphoon Jones (of Chiddy Bang) and Big Gigantic, among others.[5] Pharrell Williams served as executive producer on the group's 2012 EP, Lightyears.[6][7]

The group has produced official remixes for Foster the People and Zee Avi,[8] and produced the Mac Miller track "PA Nights" on the album Blue Slide Park.[9] In 2011, the group joined Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller on the Green Carpet Tour.[10] In 2012, the group played South by Southwest and the Lightyears Tour, and charted on Billboard's Next Big Sound.[8][11]

In 2013, the group released the Full Moon EP. It featured collaborations with Zee Avi, Codi Caraco, and Paper Diamond.[12] The group's Full Moon EP was followed up in 2014 by the self-titled album, Mansions on the Moon.[13] According to bassist, Jeff Maccora, many of the songs on the album were inspired by the group's move to Los Angeles.[14]
