· 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
· Hailing from Philadelphia, Sun Airway is led by
songwriter Jon Barthmus, who is joined by fellow
sound sculptor Patrick Marsceill. Recorded
primarily in Barthmus’ basement studio over the
course of 18 months, the album blends processed
sounds, field recordings and timeless vocal
melodies into their abstract fractured pop.
· The duo expands to a full blown quintet when
performing live, with projections designed for each
song creating a wondrous sensory overload.
· In addition to an ambitious live show, Sun Airway
have been reinventing the music of others, with
remixes of Delorean, Kisses, Here We Go Magic
and more circulating around the internet.
· “[Sun Airway have] mixed the strange and the
sublime together with impressive results thus far” -
