#013 – ’16 week 43
In the late ’90, the band AIR begins its life by doing electronic music in a different ways than other electronic french bands such as Daft Punk, Cassius or Bob Sinclar.
The way they play music is way softer, calm, relaxing and the ambiance they create is very unique for this time.
Unlike other songs like Sexy Boy and more recently some songs from The Virgin Suicides that are more on the Pop side, La Femme d’Argent is without vocal and brings some of their characteristic sounds: bass playing with a pick, Wurlitzer piano with a bit of distortion, Korg MS20 synthesizer or the ARP “Solina” String Ensemble.
The overall sound is very coherent I find and that’s why I’d like to share this track.
