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
