Air's European-label five-song EP, Premiers Symptomes, may have been a collection of early singles, but when it first came out in 1997 it felt all of a piece. Deploying an array of vintage mid-century instruments (Fender Rhodes, Minimoog, Clavinet), as well as a tuba, Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel created a cloistered, lulling sound world that was entirely their own (although, think The Percy Faith Orchestra Covers Brian Eno's Music for Airports and you get the basic idea). By contrast, the recent rerelease of Premiers, with two bonus tracks, sounds like exactly what it is: a collection of early singles. It's not that newcomers "Californie" and "Brakes On" are unworthy, just that their overt funk shatters the tranquil atmosphere this French duo so painstakingly establish elsewhere. Most electronica fans are usually more than happy to bump 'n' grind, but when they're in the mood to play Premiers Symptomes, all they want--all they need--is the Air that they breathe. --Jeff Salamon

Despite of the fact that Air cite their influences as the Beach Boys, the Beatles and Burt Bacharach they are, undoubtedly, one of the most exciting sounds to emerge from '90s Electronica. Call it what you want- ambient/lounge/disco/pop/ kitsch/moogweirdness (!) Air have succeded in producing a sound that is both futuristic and retro, not quite fitting into any cosy niche ... In the words of Nicolas, they are akin to the moon which has been "here for so long now and we still want to go there...it's like music."
Godin and Dunkel both met in University in Paris where Dunkel was already a member of the 'indie-rock'band 'Orange'. Fellow member Alex Gopher introduced Godin to Orange and who soon became a bandmember. Gopher then left whilst Godin and Dunkel continued, finally morphing into Air in 1995. From there they proceeded to release singles on Mo Wax and Source (based in France).In July 1997 an acumulation of their four previous Eps, Premiers Symptomes, was released on Source/Virgin and provided a great taste of what was to come. Premiers Symptomes was, disappointingly, deleted in the UK in March 1999. January 1998, however saw the release of the sublime Moon Safari, charting at number 5 inthe UK Charts, giving birth to the legend that is Sexy Boy, Kelly Watch the Stars!, and All I need featuring the hauntingly delicate vocals of American singer Beth Hirsch. Armed with Moogs (offically the coolest word in the world). Air's next move is to release to score to 'Virgin Suicides' directed by Sophia Coppola. 'Playground Love' is the first single from it and has received lots of radio airplay. They have given two concerts in America in promotion of the score.
