Air Waves: Keys [Track Review]

Air Waves

With “Keys”, Air Waves proves that you don’t need to be technical geniuses to write a great song. “Keys” is quite simplistic, natural pop reminiscent of California beaches and sunny summer afternoons. Oddly enough, this band hails from New York. Basic guitar melodies, unembellished vocals; it’s all pure and easy. But it’s also damn catchy. Tropical to a point, the song is adorned with traces of acoustic power pop. “Keys” is unabashed pop greatness. In a way, it reminds me a bit of early stuff by Somebody Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.

Air Waves recently self-released their debut 5-song EP, available now from the Air Waves MySpace page.
