Aeroplane: We Can’t Fly (Eskimo Recordings)
Posted on 24.9.2010
Aeroplane’s eagerly anticipated debut album, We Can’t Fly, finally arrives with lots of hype surrounding. The Belgian duo with Italian roots established themselves as party-starting DJs, remixers du jour – with their spacious cosmic-disco re-rubs of Grace Jones, Friendly Fires and Sebastien Tellier. Having amicably parted company with his band mate Stephen Fasano, Vito De Luca continues Aeroplane as a one-man operation. Recorded in Toulouse, Paris, London & Los Angeles and co-produced by Bertrand Burgalat, We Can’t Fly is a grown up, dazzlingly accomplished album that showcases not just a passion for stately, soulful disco and early 80s electronica, but a lush and bittersweet set of influences that stretch from Abba and film soundtracks to Floyd, the Stones and Italian crooners.
