Air Moon Safari (Source/Caroline)

Refreshing, light and expansive – this is Air. The French duo have moved from the soundscapes of their collected singles EP, Premiers Symptomes,  to gorgeous melodies and pretty female vocals on their debut full-length, Moon Safari. Air makes their presence felt – albeit unobtrusively – with an organic approach to what others of their ilk create digitally. Lazy, sensual horns settle easily alongside technologically produced twitters. A studio-constructed steady backbeat provides the setting for lush strings. Poetic instrumentals breathe energized life into delicate vocal samplings. Moon Safari, takes a melodious voyage through blissful sonic terrain. Full yet spacious, Air allow plenty of breathing room amidst their extensive usage of lavish instrumentation.
