Hey guys! I wanted to tell you about a band I’ve been listening to a lot lately. They’re called Pacific Air. I am pretty sure I came across their song “float” in one of my many favorite mixes on 8tracks.com and loved the song so much I decided to check out their other songs. This also happened to be a month before Lollapalooza where the band would be playing! Pacific Air is made up of two brothers from California Ryan and Taylor Lawhon. The crazy thing is these guys are AMAZING and they’ve only been an active band less than a year! What’s really impressive is in that almost year they’ve already opened for Passion Pit, Walk the Moon, Two Door Cinema Club, Atlas Genius, Youngblood Hawke, and Ra Ra Riot AND been invited to Lollapalooza, The Governors Ball Music Festival, and SXSW!
I was lucky enough to see Pacific Air last month at Lollapalooza. I decided I wanted to see them just based off of the one song of theirs I had heard and I was completely blown away by how great of a show they put on! (pictures below)
Unfortunately They only have two more shows this year on the books and neither one of them is anywhere near FL *tear*. I am hoping that they will schedule some last minute shows later on in the year *fingers crossed*. Seriously though people, check out this band, I promise it’ll be worth your while. Listen to their album “Stop Talking” below. My favorite tracks (in case you wanted to know) are “Float” “Move” and “Duet in B Minor”.
This is a really great indie band that played at Lollapalooza 2011! Be sure to check out all of their stuff, it’s great! This song was named the song of the summer in a 2011 Esquire article “30 Summer Songs Every Man Should Listen To”. They were also deemed a Nylon Magazine Band Crush…..Interesting! It was also featured on Vampire Diaries at some point..not surprised, CW plays great indie music on most of their shows!
