Airlift is based in New York City. Their recent release Don’t Mind Me came out in April of 2018. It is the second release from Airlift over their career. Don’t Mind Me is more raw and uncut than their previous release.
The band intended for this, feeling that the unpolished sound that is found on Don’t Mind Me was more representative of their true sound. The EP is great to listen to, showcasing the fruits of the labor of Airlift for fans of hard rock the world over.
There are only three tracks on Don’t Mind Me. Each one has a voice of its own. The general sound of the EP is cohesive, but each track has a different take on that sound. There are upbeat snare driven choruses, arpeggiated guitar breaks, grooving bass lines and biting lyrics that populate the neighborhood of sounds that make up Don’t Mind Me.
One or two more tracks would have rounded the whole thing off a little more, but the tracks that are on Don’t Mind Me do not disappoint in the slightest.
Don’t Mind Me is a darker take on the classic hard rock sound. Airlift does a great job of keeping to the roots of the sound, while also staying true to their voice. Parts of Don’t Mind Me have a rougher feel to them, but this only adds to the realness of the EP.
The running time is just under 15 minutes. It is a perfectly portioned bite of Airlift’s sound. With previous releases available alongside Don’t Mind Me, the next Airlift release is one that I’ll be looking forward to.
