Air Traffic are Chris Wall, David Jordan, Jim Maddock and Tom Pritchard, four lads from Bournemouth who's debut album Fractured Life peaked at number 42 in the album chart and really should have caused much more of a stir than it did. Piano led, guitar driven indie rock, it's a heartfealt and energetic record that demands your attention. Think Coldplay with teeth and you're somewhere close. Expect a full review on my sister blog Winston Reviews soon.
Air Traffic are on tour in January with shows across the country including a date at the prestigious Koko in London, and I for one hope to be there. If you want to catch the boys in your area check out their myspace for more details. While you're on myspace, take the time to listen to the frankly excellent Charlotte, which was released as a single for the second time in March. It's well worth three minutes of your time.
