This Norwegian band is also known as a Pink Floyd Tribute band The Pink Floyd Experience.
The easy way to review this band is to put them in a corner as a non inspirational and second hand-copy-band. I don't agree with this easy conclusion.
Airbag is much more than a band inspired by Pink Floyd

From 2001 the band is releasing own material. The Live album Crying out in Oslo and three ep-s.
Now, at last, a full studio album.
The songs are all re-recorded from two of those ep-s.

  • Prelude Sounds 2002-That I Hear
  • No Escape 2007-Safetree
  • Safe Like You 2002-Sounds That I Hear
  • Steal My Soul 2007-Safetree
  • Feeling Less 2002-Sounds That I Hear
  • Colours 2007-Safetree
  • How I Wanna Be 2002-Sounds That I Hear
  • Sounds That I Hear 2002-Sounds That I Hear

  • Airbag's music has a lot of multi layered melodies with long notes of strings/organ/piano and electric guitar in an dreamy atmosphere and total relaxation.
    The music is pleasant to hear and close to bands like No-Man-Archive-Radiohead-LIVE-Gazpacho and of course, laid back Pink Floyd.

    For the people that are not confinced: Go the the bands webpage and get the free downloads of Live concerts (2008-Live in Oslo) (2009 Live in Oslo).
