Hardly surprising that Brighton's Air Formation can count on support slots on tour with former shoegaze pioneers Mark Gardener and Rachel Goswell. The similarity with Gardener's former band Ride is especially noticeable given Air Formation's devotion to building layer upon layer of guitar effects whilst somewhere within lie some blank, almost inaudible vocals. At least, though, they can recognise the importance of a tune. At first, it's a case of blink and you'll miss it but by unravelling through those aforementioned layers, beauty lies within. 'Daylight Storms' works because of its consistency of approach, whereby relentless sonic walls compete with hypnotic melody. There's no particular tracks which are significantly better than any others (though the slightly more aggressive undertow to 'Tidal' just clinches it as the best song) but then there's no real weak moments either. No surprise, therefore, that this record won't win any converts to the shoegazing cause but it's a reliably solid example of the genre nevertheless.
