The tracks from Air’s upcoming Love 2 have been promising indicators for the album, since they suggest a return to the intriguing pop of their earlier work (especially “Sing Sang Sung“). Now comes the smoky “So Light Is Her Footfall,” a track that finds the duo doing some seductive talk-singing over simmering instrumentation. Good work again fellas. You’ve just increased the chances that Love 2 won’t be a let-down.
Love 2 is due out on Oct. 6 via Astralwerks. [Stereogum]
