New Air Single -- "Do the Joy" + Free Download
"Do The Joy," the new single from French electronic duo Air, carries the band's tradition of spacey, undeniably French electronic music
Those fine French folks that call themselves Air have offered their newest single, "Do the Joy," from their forthcoming album Love 2 (awesome title) on iTunes for free. All you have to do is go to the band's website at www.aircheology.com , wait for the little animation and sign up for your free iTunes download code. What are you waiting for? Go download and be merry. I will offer some thoughts on the tune after the jump.
The song kicks off with some heavy rock guitars, a fun departure for the band, that bleed into a Halloween-esque, squiggly synth line. In comes the piano -- that soft, gentle touch of keys that made the band's album Moon Safari such a bastion of 60's era soft piano ballads splayed over songs about stars, sexy boys and making it easy.
