Since discovering them through Frank at Listen Before You Buy last year, it's really a wonder that I never mentioned Sun Airway. Not even once. And frankly, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier is pretty darn amazing so shame on me. But when I saw that Sun Airway had a new track out, I knew I couldn't sleep on it - not this time. Early this fall Sun Airway are dropping a new album entitled Soft Fall and if this new track "Close" is anything to go off of the album's going to be a thing of absolute beauty.
"Close" is a warm, layered piece of band-love inducing catchiness. There's a veritable sea of sounds that shine with a smile-inducing brightness and an musical insistence that doesn't let up until seconds before the track ends. It swells and swoops around a strong bass line that cuts through the cacophony while still blending in and feeling very much a part of it. "Close" is crafted with a delicate touch and listen after listen reveal more and more whirling parts which you'll practically forced into discovering because the track is simply too catchy for you not to hit repeat. But don't just take my word for it, get a taste of the awesome track from Sun Airway's upcoming sophomore record Soft Fall (out October 2nd) below.
