Sun Airway

The first time Sun Airway's crackling pop sounds made their way through our speakers, we heard what felt like the lost soundtrack to the next Sofia Coppola film; atmospheric yet catchy, hazy but somehow vital and immediate. Sun Airway has hit on the sweet spot where infectious hooks and cerebral electronic pop intersect, pulling textural sound and pop songcraft into one. It is hard to imagine namedropping both the Strokes and Animal Collective when describing a single band, but that is exactly what Pitchfork has done with Sun Airway, while describing "Put the Days Away" and "Infinity," two tracks from the band's debut album, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier.

“Wild Palms” by Sun Airway by DOJAGSC

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.

This 7″ single will be available physically on July 19th, 2011 but is now available at all digital retailers. (iTunes, Amazon, Emusic)
