Peterborough based four-piece Airways return with their last release of the year in the form of ‘Blue Gasoline’ (Released December 14). Taking healthy doses of inspiration from a range of genres, the bands new single ‘Blue Gasoline’ emerges as a dark, brooding track that, yet again, refuses to let Airways be pigeon-holed by genre.
Having supported the likes of Nothing But Thieves on a string of tours as well as filling clubs across Europe with their own headline dates, Airways followed up on the success of their debut EP ‘Starting To Spin’, bursting back onto the scene with fan-favorite ‘Alien’ in September. With support dates up and down the country confirmed throughout December with indie stalwarts Razorlight, the Peterborough outfit look to turn more heads over the festive period whilst maintaining their relentless live schedule.

With millions of streams and praise from the likes of Clash Magazine, Radio 1, Radio x and Triple J already under their belts, ‘Blue Gasoline’ delivers a darker, more refined style of songwriting with lead-singer Jake Daniels’ raw vocal abilities bringing a level of charisma that has been captivating audiences the world over. Moody synths create a deep atmosphere that builds towards a massive finale of crunching guitars and solid drums, all enriched by the bands intelligent and infectious lyricism. ‘Blue Gasoline’ will surely continue to define Airways as one of the most genuinely exciting emerging bands in the UK at the moment.
Speaking on the track Daniels states “”Blue Gasoline’ is an exciting one for us because it’s a new strand of the Airways sound, and it feels like the beginning of a more mature direction for us. We’re basically old men now and this song reflects that.”
