Praise for Soft Fall

“Merging with the already gleaming major-key synths, the strings provide grandeur and romantic swirl. They also effectively confuse the listener’s comportment toward space and time. The album title, says Barthmus, is meant to capture a state of weightlessness. And floating moments certainly abound, especially on the closing track, ‘Over My Head’ (which, Barthmus says, isn’t a Fleetwood Mac reference), as pulsing strings and twinkling synths gradually rise into a melodious tidal wave.” – Village Voice

“This brilliant album is colourful, giddy and immensely enjoyable from start to finish. He’s combined a sparkly and woozy aesthetic with killer melodies to create a cohesive and fun winning formula.” – Music OMH

“Sun Airway’s Jon Barthmus doesn’t aim small. Soft Fall, the Philly native’s sophomore album, is symphonic electro-pop in the most literal sense, blending fragmented orchestral loops with glittery synth pulses and moody ambience — capturing the grandiose sweep of M83′s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming in half the running time, without the spoken word bits and puzzling interludes about frogs.” – eMusic

LSTN // Sun Airway Premieres New Track “Black Noise,” On Tour with M83 Now

Premiering this morning at Pitchfork, it’s Sun Airway’s new single “Black Noise.” You’ll find the song on their forthcoming album, Soft Fall, out next Tuesday, October 2. You can still pre-order the album at SC Distribution and receive the beautiful purple vinyl we showed you last week!

Jon recently gave an interview at DIY, indulging the reader with a bit of backstory to each track on the new record. “Black Noise” is in fact a “love song to the silence of a radio tuned to dead air.” When writing “Black Noise” Jon comments it was “unintentionally sounding like the most ‘pop’ thing he’s ever done” and so he went with it. To find out more about the album, head HERE.

“The songs are expansive, often shrouded in mysterious instrumentation, abstract off-turns, all without teetering into the realms of artistic snobbery.” – Jamie Milton, DIY

Sun Airway is currently on tour with M83! They play Miami Beach tonight and make their way back up the East Coast over the next week. Jon and the gang will then pair up with Pure Bathing Culture for West Coast dates. You’ll find the full schedule and ticket links HERE.
