Sun Airway Share Another Live Video, Release Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier To Wide Prase in the UK

Sun Airway’s “Your Moon” Live from klipcollective on Vimeo.

As promised, Sun Airway have released another live video, this time for “Your Moon” and once again, the projections by Klip Collective are pure eye candy.

We are also pleased to release Sun Airway’s Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier in the United Kingdom today. Uncut gave the album four stars, while Q said that it, “picks up where Merriweather Post Pavilion left off, dream, abstract washes of electronic sound wrapping themselves around sweet, Beach Boys harmonies.” The Independent gave the album three stars, describing it as “miasmic drone-rock that brings to mind My Bloody Valentine collaborating with The Flaming Lips.” For our friends in the UK, we promise this is worth the wait.

Sun Airway Live Video Month!

Sun Airway’s New Music Video for “Put the Days Away,” Album Pre-Order and CMJ Live Performances

Dead Oceans would like to present the official music video for Sun Airway’s “Put the Days Away,” directed by Ricardo Rivera of KLIP Collective.

Night has fallen upon Philadelphia, and our heroine is making her way through the streets on her bicycle. Something is wrong, and the sight of happy couples are certainly not helping. She arrives home, soaked from the rain and begins to put the day away. Her unconscious mind becomes animated for us, a gorgeous combination of visual projections previously seen for Sun Airway’s “Oh, Naoko,” “Infinity,” and “Waiting On You.”

Sun Airway’s upcoming album, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier, will be released on October 26th in North America and is now available for pre-order at SC Distribution. All pre-orders include an instant MP3 download of the entire album.

Last month Dead Oceans was proud to cast a wider net for Philadelphia’s Sun Airway, sending out the gorgeous atmospheric pop song, “Oh, Naoko” and spreading the word of their upcoming debut album, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier.

We have another mp3 to share from Sun Airway’s new album, “Put the Days Away.” Featured in Pitchfork’s Playlist, the song was called “a standout” and “a great representation of how Barthmus balances bliss and noise.”

Today we’d also like to announce that Sun Airway has joined the Windish Agency and will be joining Bear in Heaven as support this fall. The live band includes five members whose loud collective sound captures and expands upon the dynamics of Nocturne.  The show also includes individual projections made for each song by klip collective, and you can watch the projections for “Infinity,” “Oh, Naoko,” and “Waiting On You” at the klip collective vimeo site.

Sun Airway’s debut album, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier, will be released on Dead Oceans on October 26th in North America and January 2011 in the UK.

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.”

Album artwork, live visuals and a Here We Go Magic remix are all after the jump!
