Sun Airway: ‘Put The Days Away’

In anticipation of Springtime adventures, we’ve been spending a lot of time tinkering with old bikes recently, which reminded me of this video by Philadelphia’s Sun Airway. Their album, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier came out late last year on the remarkable Dead Oceans label,  a new favourite of mine.

This track stands out from the crowd of densely layered, shoegaze-y electronic pop in part because the vocals are both emotive and front-and-centre, rather than buried as texture in the mix (this track has enough texture to happily get lost in for a week). Echoes of Bono might put some off, but it even works for this U2 hater.
