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.

Watch Sun Airway’s New Video for “Wild Palms” – New European Tour Dates with Architecture in Helsinki

Today MTV Hive premiered the new music video for the Sun Airway single “Wild Palms” by Klip Collective‘s Ricardo Rivera. Recorded over the summer at the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia, “Rivera’s visual representation is about as accurate of a picture as you can get: while present, Barthmus remains somewhat of an incorporeal being, fading in and out of focus as his words superimpose over each other. Every movement appears slightly slowed and dreamy as “Wild Palms” seems to exist as a permanent part of the atmosphere — you could easily picture it being recorded in this cathedral as bright synths cut in and out like light through stained glass.”

Sun Airway is participating in an important philanthropic mission along with many of their peers to raise money for the organization Invisible Children. Each band in The Musician Coalition is trying to raise an attainable goal (Sun Airway’s goal is $1,000) to pay for radio towers in central Africa and end the use of child soldiers in the Lord’s Resistance Army.

Sun Airway’s New 7″ Out Today!

We had a lot of fun at the Pitchfork Festival this year with Sun Airway. They played the Blue stage on Saturday to a big, stoked crowd. We spent the rest of the day eating ice cream, doing interviews, re-applying sunblock and watching bands. After the jump I have some behind-the-scenes Pitchfork shots of my own, but I need to remind everyone that the fantastic new Sun Airway 7″, Wild Palms b/w Symphony in White, No. 2 is out today! It’s available at your local record store as well as your favorite internet one.

Sun Airway’s “Symphony in White, No. 2″

Sun Airway’s “Symphony In White, No. 2″ from klipcollective on Vimeo.

Today Pitchfork premiered the video for Sun Airway b-side “Symphony in White, No.2″ in the Forkcast. The video is a mini-doc (directed by Ricardo Rivera of Klip Collective) of the band’s recent performance at the First Unitarian Church in their hometown of Philadelphia. The audio is from the upcoming 7″, and the video features projections made specifically for the music by Klip Collective.

Sun Airway will perform on Friday night at Schubas in Chicago and at 1:55 on the Blue Stage at Saturday’s Pitchfork Festival in Union Park. Dead Oceans will be there – eating ice cream and getting heat stroke and hi-fiving everyone. We’ll see you there!
