Air France is Coming to New York

air france

It’s summer and that makes me think of Air France. And I guess they are thinking of us too because they’re coming to New York to DJ an event at the MoMA on July 17th.

Air France is Henrik Markstedt and Joel Karlsson. They are signed to the record label Sincerely Yours, founded by The Tough Alliance.

Music blog The Line of Best Fit got a rare glimpse into the incredible duo last month in their native Gothenberg. Check out the interview here, a must-read if you are even slightly intrigued with AF…

Here’s an excerpt:

When No Way Down, the duo’s second EP, came out nearly two years ago, it received rave reviews both Stateside and in the UK, but in Sweden went pretty much unnoticed. “It didn’t bother me at all”, Henrik says, “I had other problems to think about.” …“‘No Excuses’ was supposed to be called ‘No Apologies’, but ‘apologies’ is not a very nice sounding word, we thought. We wanted to question why people try to tell themselves that certain things have to be in a certain way, and for me it was a problem that I was so polite when I was younger.”

TLOBF also reports on something we’re sad to hear:

“Some new Air France material is expected in September. But don’t count on it.”

So for now, enjoy some of their classics:

Air France: June Evenings

Air France: ‘GBG Belongs To Us’

Collapsing At Your Doorstep is one of my all time favorite tracks, June Evenings and No Excuses are also ones to check out.

One of EMPT’s fans, KIKI, left an extensive comment list that is nothing short of amazing, describing how each track makes her feel.  Some incredible highlights here:

track 3: I fucking love a-trak. and the word alchemy. at 2:28 I’m jamming with steph in a club and then we’re at the beach and then in a plane….by about 4:25 we’re at hiro.

track 6: YESSSSSSSSSS. NO WORDS. JUST PARTY MOVES AND PARTY DRESSES. SEQUIN ONES. black sequins, and spaghetti straps and champagne and a disco ball and jumping on banquettes. and falling in love or out…

track 8: I wish I could walk around nyc with songs like this blasting from a boom box on my shoulder.

track 9: saturday afternoons during ny winter with no real sunlight and rain and snow and walking down the street with a hat and mittens and loving whats in your ears and loving strangers.

track 13: repeat. repeat. repeat. repeat. repeat. repeat. repeat.

track 14: whatevsky.

track 18: dance party in slow motion. or steph doing the running man…..

sorta like a dream, no, better…

No excuses left, waiting to fail, but not quite yet”

They are “seldom heard” and almost like a beautiful, distant dream, but December changes everything.  Swedish electro-pop duo Air France is coming… playing in Chicago for 3 days in a row, from Dec 31 thru Jan 2, at Empty Bottle.  For now, this seems to be the only overseas stop, aside from a show in Toronto on  Dec 28 at the Drake Hotel. No Way Down is the band’s second EP, released in 2008.  Songs “June Evenings,” “Collapsing at Your Doorstep” and “No Excuses” are among the best…
