Air - Walkie Talkie The French electronic duo has been dubbed “otherworldly” ever since its atmospheric debut album Moon Safari topped critics’ lists in 1998. Its ambient quality also attracted filmmaker Sofia Coppola, who had Air’s JB Dunckel and Nicolas Godin score her The Virgin Suicides movie and contribute the haunting “Alone in Kyoto” to her latest, Lost in Translation. “Our tracks are like dreams,” Dunckel once said, “we want to escape from reality.” Hypnotic tunes like “Run,” “Biological” and “Mike Mills” make that easy.
