French ambient icon Jean-Benoit Dunckel (Air, Tomorrow's World) and Icelandic composer Bardi Johannsson (Bang Gang) have released their long-awaited debut EP as collaborative electro-pop effort Starwalker.

French ambient icon Jean-Benoit Dunckel (Air, Tomorrow's World) and Icelandic composer Bardi Johannsson (Bang Gang) have released their long-awaited debut EP as collaborative electro-pop effort Starwalker.

Following on from their separate successes - including Air’s critically acclaimed 1998 debut ‘Moon Safari’ - together the pair make celestial music that is all at once shadowy, poetic and vibrant.

While the EP's title track features the calming timbre of Israeli singer-songwriter Keren Ann, filled with mellow guitar strums and deep electronic notes, second track ‘Bad Weather’ is more strongly reminiscent of Air’s characteristic chilled style - all hushed, ethereal harmonies, spacey sounds and slightly melancholic melodies.

The EP also includes an intricate remix of ‘Bad Weather’ by award-winning Icelandic electro-pop quartet Bloodgroup, whose lo-fi interpretation beautifully complements the duo's layered sound.
