Louis Gordon, (John Foxx's long term musical collaborator) has released the single "This Air", remixed from his second album for Toffeetones "EST". This Air is a stand-out track that has captured the public's attention as a heartfelt and deeply moving electro-pop ballad that will stay with you for some time. Backed with the anthemic "Turning Into Everything", this single is a perfect introduction to Louis' "EST" album which you may also like to check out.
Not only can Louis play, engineer and produce music he can write some pretty good songs. This is one of them.
Well packaged and a nice choice of single. The full length version of This Air included in the CD single is an excellent bonus. Phil Oakey would have loved to be gifted with such a tune. It reminds me of The Human League around Dare/Hysteria time but conceived by Louis of course.
This Air is a truly fantastic track and has my vote for single of the year so far.
Superb understated electronica and a heartfelt vocal delivery make this a future classic in the making. Needs to be heard by as wide an audience as possible to elevate Louis Gordon to the position he deserves in the current electro/synth scene.
I listened to this with great pleasure, This Air is a charming summery song, with beautiful lyrics, to be quite honest, it blew me away!
A beautiful single to add to anyones collection buy it now!
