Air is a French duo that creates incredible electronic music. They became famous all over the world in 1998 because of the beauty of their first album, Moon Safari. Many people have tried to imitate their sound and their style, but they continue to produce unique and inventive music.
Air recently released a new album titled Talkie Walkie. It’s considered by many critics to be one of the best albums of the year. Read on to learn more about it!

Dialog

1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

Air is Jean-Benoît Dunckel and Nicolas Godin. They both grew up in Versailles, France, but didn’t meet until they began studying at the same college. Their first music group was called Orange, but they changed the name when a third member left to make music on his own.
Air’s best songs are usually a mix of rich, smooth acoustic guitars mixed with complex electronic beats and sounds. The second song on Talkie Walkie is a perfect example. It’s called “Cherry Blossom Girl.” Check out some of the lyrics.
*I never talk to you
People say that I should
I can pray everyday
For the moment to come
Cherry blossom girl
I just want to be sure
When I will come to you
When the time will be gone
You will be by my side
Cherry Blossom Girl *

Discussion

Although I’ve liked their music for several years, I didn’t know much about Air until I bought Talkie Walkie last week. I realized I really liked the album, so I researched them on the internet. It turns out that they’ve made a lot of great music since 1998. I’m excited to hear some of their other albums.
If you like electronic music created by people like Moby, Fatboy Slim and Dirty Vegas, you might like Air. You should take some time to give Talkie Walkie a listen.
Rock on,
Migs
