Air TK Maxx Presents Southampton Summer Sessions

AIR began in Paris in 1995 when two young, smart graduates released a song dedicated to the modern architectural pioneer Le Corbusier. With a couple of years, Jean-Benoît Dunckel and Nicolas Godin had rocketed to the stars with their sleek and sexy brand of cosmic chamber pop and electronica.The duo released their debut album Moon Safari in 1998, which featured the hits 'Sexy Boy', 'All I Know' and 'La femme d'argent', and became a vital example of turn-of-the-millennium electronica, ambient and downtempo styles. In 2023, to celebrate the seminal debut's 25th anniversairy, Dunckel and Godin announced that in 2024 they would perform the album in its entirety, adding further UK dates due to demand, including a night at London's Royal Albert Hall.AIR have also released albums such as the electronic-heavy 10 000 Hz Legend (2001) and Talkie Walkie (2004); the latter included the song 'Alone in Kyoto', which featured on the Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation soundtrack after the band had also composed the score of the director's The Virgin Suicides in 1999.
