Sun Airway - Soft Fall
I have a habit of liking bands on facebook immediately after I hear a song that I like from them but the problem with this is that sometimes I forget these groups until they pop back up on my news feed again. Today this actually worked in my favor though because I rediscovered the sounds of Philadelphia duo Sun Airway and also picked up word of their second LP Soft Fall, which is due out on the second of October. “Close” is the first taste from that album and I couldn’t have picked a better time than now to get back into the band. They’ve been compared to the likes of Animal Collective (during their Merriweather Post Pavilion days) and The Strokes but I think Sun Airway has a sound that’s completely their own. “Close” hits hard right from the beginning with an infectious indie rock vibe that’s accompanied by small doses of psychedelic and dream pop to make things even more colorful.At it’s core what you get is a fast paced, heartfelt track that’s undeniably catchy and fun and I for one can’t wait to hear Soft Fall in it’s entirety. Before I end this I’ve got to give a quick shout out to the brief sax parts throughout the song, because well who doesn’t love a good and sexy saxophone? October is definitely shaping up to be another great month in music.
