Why do we like this?
The greatest feeling when listening to a song for the first time is the chilling sensation of goose bumps surfacing on every inch of skin. This embryonic reaction is common among most music enthusiasts, especially when all other distractions are blocked out and the artist has your upmost attention and reverence.

The first time Sun Airway's feathery pop sound hits your ears, it sends you on a voyage to a blissful picnic in indie heaven. This Philadelphia duo made up of Jon Barthmus and Patrick Marsceill just released their newest full-length album, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier, and it's sure to be the album that puts these guys on the map.

The track "Infinity" transmits beautifully washed-out chords that eventually builds up from its mystical atmosphere and brings in pulsating electro beats to delicately lift you into another dimension. The lyrics "remember we exploded in the desert; a mirage of one thousand halos landing in sand, drowned in the moonlight eyes" fit perfectly with the theme of the song.

"Oh, Naoko" stays true to their bliss-pop energy right from the start, giving us beats that instantly make us want to frolic. The whimsical lyrics are subtle and endearing, making me want to capture its essence and place it into a romantic novel of love and fortitude: "I'll be there just to lasso you the moonshine, in the back of your mind just like a wind chime / I'll be there when you call my name, oh Naoko."

Once the infectious electronic hooks and melodic structures intersect, they ultimately form an arrangement perfectly suited for an indie movie soundtrack. With a dreamy sound similar to Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavillion, and a voice that could be compared to Julian Casablancas, it's no surprise as to how or why this album is going to kick ass.
