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!

Wild Palms” b/w “Symphony in White, No. 2 is the first taste of new material from Sun Airway since the release of their acclaimed debut, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier. Following tours with Bear in Heaven, Cults, Small Black, Lower Dens and more, the band went back into the studio and emerged with this stunning new single. First performed live at a special engagement this past Friday at the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia,”Wild Palms” is now offered for download at

On this 7″ the band’s modern sounds glance backwards, with faint 80s pop melodies sneaking into the band’s repertoire. Although the sounds are lush, subtle and carefully crafted, Sun Airway once again proves the songwriting comes first, writing instantly classic pop tunes on their new single.

This 7″ single will be available physically on July 19th, 2011 but is now available at all digital retailers. (iTunes, Amazon, Emusic)
