Air Traffic (Video)
My expectation that Air Traffic were going to be ‘the new Feeling’ was clearly quite a mistake, unless this single is entirely atypical of their sound, because it’s nothing like The Feeling. Personally I’m much favouring Ghosts or Tiny Dancers in the ‘new Feeling’ stakes, but really I don’t think we need a replacement quite yet – all the tracks from 12 Stops And Home still sound ace. Air Traffic seem to be much rockier, which doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but in this case certainly is. Still, it doesn’t mean they won’t be successful – just perhaps not with our mothers.

Yes, it is THAT Therese! The one who sang with Stonebridge on their 2 ace hits and the one who released the amazing dance-pop single Time in Sweden a few years ago. Finally she’s got a solo single coming out on EMI, and although it’s very generic dance music (not even particularly poppy) and nothing on her Stonebridge songs or Time or even her duet with The Attic for Melodifestivalen, it’s still Therese so I hope she will do well with it.
