Hailing from Chicago’s lower west side, Yourself And The Air combine Midwest atmospherics with the sweeping sprawl of a skyward city built on electricity and steel. Take flight over Lake Michigan and this is your soundtrack. Songs to think to. Songs to dream to. At one moment the infinitesimal line between water and sky, the next the buzzing neons of the boulevard at night, escaping crowded bars for desolate alleys — you and a memory, Yourself And The Air.
After four EPs, countless tours, a slight lineup change and a relocation, the new record — Spirit Mixers — perfects the quirk pop the band has made a name on. Soundscapes are whimsical, rolling, catchy. Think warm, hazy summers and bicycle rides to the beach. Or maybe camping trips.
