From The Artist : It was produced by Tyler of Airliners. The recording took place over 8 hours and was fuelled by a substantial amount of single malt whisky — for medicinal and inspirational purposes. The main instrumental tracks of the song are all single, track long first takes. I want people to hear the beauty of love and of Copenhagen itself reflected in the music, and contrast that with the melancholic nature of the lyrics. The entire track is a ying-yang of happiness, pain, longing, love, and acceptance. Just the magic of hopping on a plane and heading across the world to see someone you love — contrasted against the pain of sending someone you love on a plane across the world, never knowing if you’ll ever see them again.
Mozart. Beethoven. Chopin. DaVinci. Michelangelo. Rembrandt. Van Gogh. Shakira. Airliners. What do these great artists all have in common? An unquenchable thirst to affect change; an insatiable desire to encapsulate the eternal torture of the human condition; an irresistible urge to make an extreme amount of money by cashing in on their talents. In a world of those who stick their heads in the sand, Airliners take flight. In a world of those who numb themselves with vodka and Instagram, Airliners numb themselves with grand cru Burgundy and Hinge. In a world of those who would rather make hate than make love, Airliners make music to make love to.
The brainchild of Tyler Boyd and Noah Monckton, this stratospheric duo has its origins on the sleepy and wet west coast of Canada. Hailing from Victoria, British Columbia, the meeting of these two Kings was no accident. A humble back-yard jam, fuelled by great quantities of Hoyne Pilsner and Hall & Oates, which naturally are equally powerful forces, quickly led to the birth of what would become the hit making partnership of a generation.
Initially releasing their debut EP “Liftoff” to universal acclaim in 2016, these two have followed separate paths until June of 2020. Driven by their mutual desire to never have a real job, yet to acquire great amounts of currency, Airliners have decided to Liftoff again with greater Thrust than ever before. Watch these skies, because only heaven knows what Airliners have planned next…
