“A super-chill track from their first album. There aren’t a ton of synths on it, but in the spots where Air do use synths, they do so in a very sophisticated, cool and classy way. That kind of sums up Air in general: Everything they do is sort of perfect.
“There’s a Hofner bassline that sounds amazing, even in an iconic way, and underneath are some synth elements that are very subtle – they sort of creep in. If you took the synth out, something very important about the vibe would be missing.
“Air are another group that handles the mix of synths and organic instruments really well. Whenever they do an album, they kind of replace their studio and buy all new synths and drum machines – remaking their sound to some extent.”
