Airways – Starting to Spin

Will 2 Listen’s first taste of Airways came last year when they supported Sunset Sons at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. From the first note, they dispelled any doubts about their place on the bill at such an iconic venue. To call them the new Blur may be a tad impetuous but it’s hard to say much less upon listening to their debut EP. ‘One Foot’ blasts open the proverbial door with raucous bass and guitar which is soon followed by ‘White Noise Boys’; an indie rock gem which oozes 90s nostalgia. 

What strikes me as I listen to single ‘Reckless Tongue’ is that they don’t sound like a bunch of punk kids shouting at the world. Their sound is carefully crafted and well-polished without being overproduced. Jake Daniels has the voice of a relatable British youth conveying teen frustration and anguish with the authority of an industry veteran.

More of this please lads!
