PACIFIC AIR, have hit the road with Walk The Moon. The jaunt will see the group traverse the entire east coast in support of its recently released four-song debut EP for Republic Records, Long Live Koko. Then, in February, they’ll embark on a run with Ra Ra Riot leading up through March. Watch the sunny and sexy music video for the first single “Float” on VEVO now.

In addition, they’ll appear at The Governor’s Ball June 7-9 on Randall’s Island, NY alongside superstars and powerhouse acts such as Kanye West, Kings of Leon, Pretty Lights, Grizzly Bear, The XX, The Avett Brothers, and many more.

On “Float”, the brotherly collective of Ryan and Taylor Lawhon stir transcendent new age influences into sun-soaked ethereal pop. An amalgam of whistling, pure melodies, and fluttering hooks careens with an irresistible push-and-pull. The track’s music video will make its world premiere very soon.

Pitchfork exclaimed, “Ryan and Taylor Lawhon’s jangle of tambourines, whistles, and breathy harmonies rises to cruising altitude above the fray”, MTV Hive praised their “potential for crossover”, Interview fittingly dubbed “Float” “hypnotizing surf-pop”, while described it as “a cinematic little tale that’ll make your heart flutter and light up a big smile”.”Float” away with PACIFIC AIR when they play your town.
