Sun Airway

A couple weeks ago, we went out to a beautiful farm (Wyebrook Farm in Honey Brook, PA to be exact) and took some photos with the immensely talented Jess Roberts. Also, enormous thanks to Shari at Philadelphia&#8217;s Reward boutique, for lending us some of the latest fashions, so that we didn&#8217;t have to wear those snowpants that patrick picked out.<br />Here&#8217;s one of the photos. <br />UPDATE: Jess has a show opening this friday (August 6th) at Stockbridge Fine Art Print. I&#8217;ve been told it will feature a dreamy portrait of Patrick. Get there!<br /><br />In other visual news, just put the finishing touches on the artwork for the album, which is coming out in the fall. Spoiler alert! Not too much more that&#8217;s fit to print, but look for the full details in the next couple weeks! Just know that there is a release date scheduled but I refuse to say it out loud in order to avoid a jinx of some sort.

ARTIST / BAND: Sun Airway

MP3s : "Oh, Naoko" / "Casual" (Here We Go Magic Remix)

ALBUM: Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier

FILE UNDER: Shoegaze / Indie Pop

LABEL: Dead Oceans

INFO: 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.
