"Premiere: Manor - 'Can You Hear Me Talking At You'"

Music is an international affair.
Australian group Manor recently sat down to record new single 'Can You Hear Me Talking At You', a glistening gem of a track.
Recording the track themselves, it was mixed by Gareth Jones in London and mastered in Brooklyn by Joe Lambert. The track aired earlier this week, and has already clocked up a stunning amount of SoundCloud plays, winning fans at home and abroad in the process.
Clash is able to air the home made video for the song. Directed by Anny Duff, it was shot on super 8 film by a surfer in the late 60's and filmed at Cactus, a surf break off the coast of South Australia. - Clash Music

"Manor - Architecture"

Melbourne-based Manor are a huge tease, having released just two singles since forming in 2011. The duo do have a pretty valid excuse given they both also play in the brilliant, Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire!, but when you enjoy a band's music this much, it seems like an age waiting for new music. That time has come, with a brand new single ready to go, and Indie Shuffle have the world-premiere of "Architecture" for you!

Manor have a fantastic ability to create depth in their music, especially when you consider all instruments are played by just one person - Nathaniel Morse. Of course, he's aided by the arrangement of vocalist Caitlyn Duff's tranquil tones, her voice an instrument in itself given how much it adds to this song's overall soundscape. These two musicians have gelled perfectly together on "Architecture," a real slow-burner with plenty of longevity to it.

Meticulously crafted, music like this is well worth the wait. The best part of this release is that it comes with news of Manor's debut EP, scheduled at this stage for release around the turn of the year. Patience is a virtue. - Indie Shuffle

"Premiere: Manor – Grand Mal"

Back in August we loved the psych-tinged modern pop of Australian duo Manor’s debut track “Can You Hear Me”. The Aussie twosome return today with the follow-up, the equally excellent mid-tempo song “Grand Mal”. On the track, a big and visceral distorted main drum beat anchors an otherwise more surreal instrumental of reverb-drenched guitars, deep-in-the-PA vocals, and a magnetic bass-driven groove. Stream the B3 Premiere of Manor’s new track “Grand Mal” below. - Blahblahblahscience

"'Can You Hear Me Talking At You'"

Although “Can You Hear Me Talking At You” may have slithered past us when it was released a couple weeks back, we’re beyond elated to have it in front of us now ahead of the release of the Australian indie-rock group's forthcoming EP. What MANOR does particularly well here is use reverb and layer vocals to create a sound to lay over the underlying grunge-guitar riffs that are also used. The track oscillates from instrumental to vocal sections with ease, too, rounding out a light, indie-rock-oriented effort that perks our ears for the EP that's to come. - Hillydilly

"The Weekly Noisebox"

Next up we have a hazy, riff-jammed effort from Melbourne-based duo Manor. The track, which is leading their forthcoming EP of the same name, is elevated to greatness thanks to Caitlin Duff’s gorgeous vocals and an absolutely undeniable melody that you’ll be caught humming for weeks to come. - London The Inside

"Catch of the Day"

I've always been a fan of Caitlin Duff's voice. But the way she's using it with new outfit Manor, has me swooning for more. Duff usually gets around as the lead singer of Adelaide's Fire! Santa Rosa! Fire! but has recently been collaborating in Melbourne with multi-instrumentalist Nathaniel Morse.

Together they're Manor, and all that I've heard so far, I'm a big fan of. This new tune "Architecture" takes the cake. A killer bassline from the getgo, that ethereal voice that lilts in just the right places and the beautiful build throughout. It's a winner. It's today's Catch. - triplej


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Melbourne duo Manor first came to the attention of a small but dedicated audience dotted the world over via a trio of stand-alone singles spanning 2011-2013, after which they set about designing a purpose built studio, Elysian Fields.

In March 2016 Manor revealed their debut self titled EP featuring a trio of singles including ’CanYou Hear Me Talking At You’, ‘Grand Mal’ and ‘They’ve Come Into My Home’ recorded at Elysian Fields, mixed by Gareth Jones (Grizzly Bear, Nick Cave) in London and mastered by Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Unknown Mortal Orchestra) in NYC.

Most recently, Manor shared their latest stand-alone single 'Repent' (which received its radio premiere on triple j's Home & Hosed program while the video premiered on just days before heading up to BIGSOUND 2016 for their official artist showcase.

Manor has a busy end to 2016 planned with a new EP, and an even busier 2017, with a debut LP slated for release in March and a coinciding tour domestic and international touring.
