Air­park Re­turn With Early Works, Vol­ume 2 New EP Due Septem­ber 15

Nashville Al­ter­na­tive Pop/Rock Duo Fea­tures Broth­ers Michael and Ben Ford, For­merly of The Apache Re­lay

Public News (Houston) - - NEWS -

Nashville in­die-pop duo Air­park will re­lease their lat­est EP Early Works, Vol­ume 2 via the band’s own la­bel, Eugenia Hall Records, on Septem­ber 15. The re­lease ar­rives six months af­ter their de­but, Early Works, Vol­ume 1, which show­cased the duo’s abil­ity to cre­ate evoca­tive mo­ments with the most min­i­mal of in­stru­men­ta­tion.

That sense of min­i­mal­ism gave way to some­thing heartier as the band, com­prised of broth­ers Michael Ford, Jr. and Ben Ford, be­gan tour­ing the coun­try in early 2017, play­ing more than 100 shows dur­ing the year. Along the way, Air­park bol­stered its ranks to a four-piece band for live per­for­mances. As the mu­si­cians played to­gether, their evolv­ing at­mo­spheric grooves made room for syn­the­siz­ers, broth­erly har­monies, syn­co­pated guitars, melodic hooks and a glob­ally-per­cus­sive punch. The foun­da­tion for Vol­ume 2 was in place.

Back home in Nashville, Air­park recorded Early Works, Vol­ume 2, with en­gi­neer and co-pro­ducer Ryan McFad­den (Tor­res, Tony Joe White). The tracks were mixed by en­gi­neer Gavin Pad­dock (ZZ Ward, Valerie June) and mas­tered by Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Arc­tic Mon­keys). A bold ex­pan­sion of the band’s orig­i­nal sound, these four songs show the broth­ers’ abil­ity to con­nect with the lis­tener in both the loud­est and most in­ti­mate of songs.

The Ford broth­ers launched the group in 2016, one year af­ter their pre­vi­ous project The Apache Re­lay dis­banded.

So far Air­park has been em­braced by Team Coco, Bae­ble, Amer­i­can Song­writer, Lock­e­land Spring­steen, Un­der The Radar and more.
