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
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.
