Air France call it quits

By ; March 26, 2012 at 2:42 PM 

Well, this has come as something of a surprise to say the least. Swedish electronic duo Air France have today revealed that they will no longer be creating music together. After releasing the beloved EPs On Trade Winds and No Way Down in 2006 and 2008 respectively, the duo never seemed to get it together to release a full length.

Nevertheless, this split comes as a shock seeing as the duo had been dropping hints that they would release an album in 2011, and after that never materialised (aside from the great single “It Feels Good To Be Around You”) they said they were planning a mini-album for 2012. Now it seems that that will not happen.

The duo have left a long and heartfelt message about their highs, lows and the split on their website. A snippet of it is below, but you should really read the entire thing.

And we have probably produced 7 albums since No Way Down; a UK Garage record, a house record, an r ‘n’ b record… but we’ve never been able to finish anything, nothing was ever good enough. We have tried so hard, and we truly gave it all we had. And now we have decided to stop trying, even though it breaks our hearts. But for all the reasons mentioned above, and for a thousand more, we don’t regret a thing…

Goodbye for now. Who knows, maybe we’ll see you again in another shape. After all, we’re people that never stop dreaming.

Henrik and Joel
