Dead Oceans indie pop band Sun Airway have announced their second album Soft Fall, ironically being released this Fall on Oct. 2. You can listen to the new single "Close" below, it predicts an album of bright and *sunny* music that Sun Airway is known for. The album's press material are citing influences like New Order, ELO, Bjork and M83, a wide range of past and present sounds. Sounds like a mix of not just old and new but electronic and organic, a must-have hybrid in today's landscape.
More from the press materials to spin out the tale: "The sonically inspiring sub-strata of Soft Fall began in songwriter/producer Jon Barthmus’ house in Philadelphia. Classical foundations were chopped, dissected, and sewn back together by a string quartet in one recording studio, with live instruments overdubbed in another, then re-edited and assembled back at home by Barthmus."
