Hailing from Philadelphia, Sun Airway is led by songwriter Jon Barthmus, who is joined by fellow sound sculptor Patrick Marsceill. Sun Airway twists their songs with their kaleidoscopic production — lush electronic washes, synthetic textures and pulsing rhythms — obscuring the hooks in hazy pop bliss.
Recorded primarily in Barthmus’ basement studio over the course of 18 months, their debut full-length, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier, released by Dead Oceans, blends processed sounds, field recordings and timeless vocal melodies into their abstract fractured pop. The duo expands to a full blown quintet when performing live, with projections designed for each song, creating a wondrous sensory overload. In addition to an ambitious live show, Sun Airway have been reinventing the music of others, with remixes of Delorean, Kisses, Here We Go Magic and more circulating around the internet.
