Nicolas Godin: Orca

A significant new release, with the track Orca coming from the  first solo release by Air 's Nicolas

Air set a new standard for French music with their Moon Safari album in 1998, for many the definition of modern French music.

Contrepoint, his first solo album after seven releases with Air, their most recent being a soundtrack for Le voyage dans la lune in 2012.

Godin's partner in Air, Jean-Benoît Dunckel, has been involved in the duo Tomorrow's World who released their self-titled debut album in 2013.

He also released a four track solo EP The Man Of Sorrow in March.

Godin, meanwhile, demonstrates with Orca the playful spirit and exotic retro/futurist aesthetic that informed Air.

Contrepoint will be released later this year on Because Music.
