Air – Return Journey to the Moon

air french band le voyage dans la lune

Air, the iconic French band, travel back in time to 1902 for a return visit to the moon. They hit the big time with modern classic Moon Safari in 1998, and this time they’re soundtracking one of the first big silent movies from the dawn of cinema. As bright and playful as the movie itself, it looks like Dunckel and Godin have distilled their style into a kind of Telstar-flavoured psychedelic prog-rock.

“It’s not something boring from a museum – it’s alive!” says Nicolas Godin, of their new project which has inspired a full album, released on February 7, 2012.
