Awesome fan video of new 7″ by Sun Airway for “Wild Palms”
Wild Palms” b/w “Symphony in White, No. 2 is the first taste of new material from Sun Airway since the release of their acclaimed debut, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier. Following tours with Bear in Heaven, Cults, Small Black, Lower Dens and more, the band went back into the studio and emerged with this stunning new single. First performed live at a special engagement this past Friday at the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia,”Wild Palms” is now offered for download at Pitchfork.com.
On this 7″ the band’s modern sounds glance backwards, with faint 80s pop melodies sneaking into the band’s repertoire. Although the sounds are lush, subtle and carefully crafted, Sun Airway once again proves the songwriting comes first, writing instantly classic pop tunes on their new single.
