Indie pop band Sun Airway have released the video today for the song "Close," off of their second album Soft Fall, which as a release date of Oct. 2 on Dead Oceans.The album's press material are citing influences like New Order, ELO, Bjork and M83, a wide range of past and present sounds. It's a mix of not just old and new but electronic and organic, a good hybrid in today's music landscape. To EDM or not to EDM? Try to be too "indie?" Sun Airway skips all of this garbage and cuts to making good music. They worked with producer Jon Barthmus, recording the album at his home studio in Philadelphia.
"The two things that most often make me come back to certain songs again and again are either timeless melodies and orchestration or unique and innovative production. Most of the songs in this list hit both of those categories for me. This mix is pretty polarized into new/old by that dynamic, causing oddities like John Talbot butting right up next to Patsy Cline, but maybe that's not as far a stretch as it seems," said producer Jon Barthmus when talking about the songs on Soft Fall.
