About this item

After 2015's triumphant return with the 'Were We Ever Here' EP, Brighton shoegaze luminaries Air Formation, are set to release their fourth long-player 'Near Miss'. 'Were We Ever Here' marked Air Formation's return following their split in 2010 and was comprised mostly around the songs written prior. 'Near Miss' is the first album of entirely new material the band have written and released in seven years. The album was recorded and mixed by Pat Collier (The House of Love, Primal Scream, Jesus and Mary Chain) in just two days. The band set about expanding on earlier sounds by creating an album that is rawer than previous efforts and explores the likes of post-rock (Clouds of Orion), free-form improvised space-rock (Formation 4) and three minute sonic assaults (Vanishing Act), together with the uplifting melancholia Air Formation are known for.
