Air Review is a Dallas quartet. They played their first show in 2009 and have since received international acclaim from the blogosphere including features on NPR's All Songs Considered, CMJ, The Huffington Post, and Paste Magazine.
Their knack for engaging melodies has turned heads around the world securing licensing with the International Olympic Committee, Pacifico, Levi’s, and most recently, Apple's 30 Year Birthday campaign.
Air Review's dynamic live shows have landed them support slots for acts such as The Flaming Lips, Portugal. The Man, Grimes and Jimmy Eat World.
Air Review started writing songs in 2008 out of the converted garage of a house outside of Dallas, Texas. Meeting once a week for nearly a year in a room without air conditioning or heating, the quartet carefully crafted a record that they later self-released in 2009. After a couple years of playing countless shows and receiving glowing reviews, the band still felt like something was missing. The group hibernated for another 12 months and re-invented themselves. The first offering from their newly defined sound, America's Son, became one of the most requested songs on north Texas' 91.7 KXT who later included it in their "Best Songs of 2011" right next to Adele, Foster the People and Coldplay. America's Son also caught the attention of The Huffington Post and CMJ who claimed it was "a very different sound from other folk-pop groups and considered the band one to watch in 2012". All of this paved the way for their 2013 masterfully composed full-length album, Low Wishes, released by Velvet Blue Music (Huntington Beach, CA). This self-produced and recorded, pop infused indie record gracefully combines folk influences with synthesizers, beats and noisy guitars. It is soft and subtle at times, yet unmistakably anthemic, complete with magnificent choruses. Low Wishes is a nostalgic look at growing into adulthood and an affirmation of the belief that there is something more to life.
Air Review is currently in the studio working on their next record.
