Merging the inward gaze of lo-fi with the more gregarious pleasures of indie pop, Airport Girl are a six-piece (sometimes eight-piece) ensemble from England who has quietly amassed an impressive rÃ©sumÃ©, recording for some of the nation's most well-respected independent labels. Airport Girl's core lineup includes Rob Price on guitar, banjo, harmonica, and vocals, Robert Perris on lead guitar, Sean Price on bass, David Hill on keyboards, Richard Blackburn on electric piano, and Jon Troy on drums; auxiliary members Tom McClure on violin and Rob Fleay on trumpet work with the group as their schedules permit. Airport Girl made their recorded debut in the spring of 1998 with a 7" EP on Fortuna Pop, Between Delta & Delaware; a few months later, they appeared on Seven Summers, a compilation released by Kindercore Records. In the fall of 2000, Airport Girl released their epic pop statement "The Foolishness That We Create Through Love Is the Closest We Come to Greatness" as a single on Fortuna Pop; it was a preview of the group's first full-length album, Honey, I'm an Artist, which was issued by Matinee Recordings near the end of 2000. A four-song EP, Do You Dream in Color?, appeared on Matinee in 2003, while Where It's at Is Where You Are Records issued a 7" single, "Salinger Wrote" b/w "Emmaweg House," in 2004. In early 2007, Airport Girl's second full-length album, the eagerly awaited Slow Light, finally appeared through Fortuna Pop. ~ Mark DemingPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
