Introducing Sun Airway and Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier

_MG_7373.tif

We at Dead Oceans are elated to be adding Philadelphia’s Sun Airway to our roster. We will release their debut album, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier, on October 26th in the US and in January 2011 in the UK.

Sun Airway is led by songwriter Jon Barthmus and joined by Patrick Marsceill. Recorded primarily in Barthmus’ basement studio over the course of 18 months, the new album blends processed sounds, field recordings and timeless vocal melodies into their abstract fractured pop.

Sun Airway twists their songs with their kaleidoscopic production – lush electronic washes, synthetic textures and pulsing rhythms – obscuring the hooks in hazy pop bliss. No song on Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier represents this better than the song we are offering for free download today, “Oh Naoko.”
