The Aeroplanes were never going to set the world alight. Their style of music was not commercial enough. But hey, that’s usually the best kind of music. This is great Indie music from the 80’s.
The tunes are understated and simplistic, the production is minimal, the singer is sometimes a little off key, yet this collection of raw pop rock tunes has an airyness about it and a seriousness about it to make you feel good and melancholic, happy and sad, politically aware and totally carefree … Raw, simplistic, funny, serious, tuneful, biting, bittersweet are a few adjectives one can use to describe this, but be warned, some of the political charged lyrics are not for the fainthearted.
