We Can’t Fly
Wall Of Sound
Establishing themselves as the demi-gods of underground Italo disco scene, Aeroplane first caught our attention with their spacious & glacial re-works of Friendly Fires Paris and Grace Jones William’s Blood. This duo it seems could do no wrong. And the debut album, we assure you, does not disappoint.
Now minus Stephen Fascina, this is a solo offering from Vito Deluca who continues under the name. We Can’t Fly, co-produced by Francophile Betrand Burgalat, is a mind blowing, pulse racing, heady blend of influences stemming as far and wide as Pink Floyd, Au Revoir Simone, Air, 70s soulful disc, Georgio Moroda to Jeff Wayne’s cult odyssey War of the Worlds, all laid down to big production credentials a la Trevor Horn. Guest vocalists at hand include LA hipster Sky Ferreira and Merry Clayton who provided backing vocals to the Stone’s Gimme Shelter (I Don’t Feel) and even Moroder makes an appearance.
A truly dazzling debut accomplishment – in every essence a modern day cult classic.
