"Airmodulars "Hour Of The Wolf" LP"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AIRMODULAR’S FINEST HOUR HAS ARRIVED
Releases follow-up to its debut LP with “Hour of the Wolf”

NEW YORK – 01 July 2014 – In what is considered to be Airmodular’s best work to date, the distinctive musical ensemble follows up their radio friendly debut LP Vindication Day with their latest release, Hour of the Wolf.
Cy Donovan, the creative force behind Airmodular, has enlisted Soren Roquentin of The Lot, to co-produce and perform on selected tracks, including The Last Thought, and the title track, inspired by the surrealist Ingmar Bergman movie of the same name. The movie, in which Bergman presents a tortured protagonist suffering through a never-ending nightmare of vampire-like people, takes its title from the time at night between the hours of 3 and 5 am - a time, it has been said, when most people are born or die. A haunting refrain, Hour of the Wolf draws upon Donovan’s personal memories of his childhood doctor.
The title track is followed by the powerful Knife In The Wind (On a Summary Day), a compelling tune that contrasts a lighthearted tone with the darkness of youth-driven gun violence.
The dreamy Dream Faster comes next – a meditation on the artistic pitfalls of being swallowed up by one’s own creation. Up All Night raises the tempo with an upbeat portrayal of a downbeat character – just your average serial killer with an addiction problem.
The iron skies brighten with the ethereally infectious Dancin In The Rain followed by the whimsical Pigs In A Pen. The album concludes with the apropos The Last Thought, a hypnotic instrumental masterpiece featuring Soren Roquentin’s tranquilizing cello.
Airmodular’s Hour of the Wolf transcends its debut LP, taking its listeners to new creative and melodic frontiers – A clear statement from Donovan, that this may be Airmodular’s finest hour.

"Airmodulars new EP "Resistance""

"Airmodular, the wildly dynamic and innovative NYC Electronic band, has just released its new EP, aptly titled, "Resistance."

This latest collection includes a number of introspective and eclectic electronic rock tunes with a thematic connection. Within each exist characters engaged in personal struggles against their inner demons, fears and hang ups, but as always, the music is uplifting even when the subject matter might be serious in nature.

Normally known for the intricately woven musical style, nearly always involving electronic instruments, including a variety of keyboards and percussion, the introduction of a textured electric guitar element here sets this collection apart from anything Airmodular has done before.

Another change involves the vocals, which on this collection feature Sueyoung Yoo’s vocal contributions more prominently alongside those of Cy Donovan’s, and when they sing together, which they do on nearly all the tracks, it is in an “exquisite harmonic unison.”

The sweet and seductive Sueyoung grabs lead vocal honors on songs like the sexy Goldfrapp
inspired "Money Train"and "Stained Glass." While Cy Donovan’s low-end vocals wail out on the songs “Some Things Never Change” and the catchy and hypnotic “Roller Coaster.”

Here in a single collection, Airmodular resurrects various musical styles from the past, and the listener is taken on an amazing journey through the decades. Their EP, “Resistence” is an homage of sorts to all the popular bands from the 80s and the 90s to the present, yet in a way it is also a sort of Declaration of Independence - one dedicated to musical influences of the band’s past.

The collection, “Resistance” - by Airmodular is now available on I Tunes.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ALTERNATIVE BAND AIRMODULAR CONTINUES TO RISE WITHIN THE NEW YORK MUSIC SCENE
VINDICATION DAY MARKS FIRST FULL LENGTH ALBUM FOR THE GROUP

NEW YORK May 2012 Alternative electronic rock band Airmodular has released Vindication Day, its first full length album, to positive reviews both in the United States and abroad.

A collaboration led by writer/musician Cy Donovan, Airmodular draws from the post punk ethereal qualities of bands such as The Cure and The Cocteau Twins. Building upon their 2010 EP release of Resistance, this latest work continues the blend of progressive electronic craftsmanship with strong traditional guitar riffs and penetrating vocals that feature lead singer Sueyoung Yoo.

This is an awe-inspiring collection that shows the maturation of the group, while still remaining true to the style that weve come to expect from Airmodular, said Robert Segarra, of (Double Dragon/Dragon Heart Publishing). There is a technical mastery that comes through in the music without compromising the strength and passion of Donovans message.

Transcending todays formulaic commercial gimmicks, Airmodular has much to say about our current culture and state of affairs. The song, Big Punk for example, is a release of the pent up anger over the increasing disconnect exemplified by the gluttonously powerful - the Tony Heywards, Bernie Madoffs and others. In that sense, it resurrects our traditional reaction toward alienation that can trace its roots to the origins of Rock & Roll.

In contrast, the song Miss Major is a more internal meditation. A voyage into the minds of the female guards at Abu Gharib, the song presents the dangers of the callous mishandling of power when it is thrust upon us.

I wanted to remind people that there is still a whole lot of anger out there and it still deserves to be heard, says Donovan. This is not pop music in the contemporary sense of the word. There are powerful controllers of our society that are doing more damage now than ever before, and Im calling them out.

New York City based Airmodular will be announcing upcoming appearances and events through its social media network. For more information about Airmodular, visit:
