Airbag’s 2020 conceptual outing A Day at the Beach features six new songs recorded during autumn and winter of 2019-20.
Inspired by the resurgence of 1980s electronica, new wave and movie scores, Airbag has created a powerful sound combining ethereal soundscapes with the band's signature guitar driven Progressive Rock.
Limited gold vinyl edition with printed inner sleeve. Mastered by Jacob Holm-Lupo.
Airbag explains: “The album is the result of a strong collaboration between all three of us. Having lost two original members since our last album, we were forced to rethink how we write and create new music, but it also allowed us to venture into something new that turned out to be very inspiring.” Lyrically, A Day at the Beach is very much a story of us and them, told by a husband, father and brother leaving his family behind into an unknown future. It’s the contrast between the desperate individual struggling to survive and people in power observing at a safe distance.
For the production of A Day at the Beach, Airbag has once again teamed up with long-time collaborator and engineer Vegard Sleipnes.
The album is produced by Asle Tostrup and Bjørn Riis, and, as always, the cover is designed by vocalist Tostrup. The album, which is their first as a trio, also features talented guest musicians including Kristian Hultgren (Wobbler).
