I want to say that No Way Down traps both of these feelings - comfort and recognition of possibilities, but that wouldn't be accurate. Instead, I think it releases these feelings to the listener, even after the listen. It's an auditory sunrise, a gasp of breath from an ocean of sorrows, a spark of light. I have trouble even explaining how this sounds without using experiences, feelings and ideas that have little to do with music. There's ambient, gorgeous strings. There's a happy, stretching bassline in "No Excuses," the album's centerpiece.

Air France was a Swedish indie pop duo formed in Gothenburg and composed of Joel Karlsson and Henrik Markstedt. They were signed to the record label Sincerely Yours, founded by The Tough Alliance. Air France's music has been described as "post-rave bliss", "beach foam pop", and "Balearic disco". In August 2011, a new track titled "It Feels Good to Be Around You" from the band appeared on Pitchfork.

Like much of the sample-driven pop coming out of Gothenburg, Sweden (Jens Lekman, the Tough Alliance, El Perro Del Mar, Studio), Air France’s debut album is a work of widescreen bliss, a collage of clubby bass lines, kids’ voices, disco strings, marimbas, and the occasional whinnying horse. But for every jubilant melody, there’s a dose of melancholy
