While in the process of setting up their new studio in Downtown Los Angeles, Terminal Twilight was given a record by Rockabilly legend Jody Reynolds (by his wife!) and were immediately mesmerized by the "teardrop rock" masterpiece The Fire Of Love. Using the instruments on hand – an analog monosynth, an italian organ, a telecaster – Terminal Twilight began recording their live-wire tribute. Previously covered by The Gun Club and MC5, Terminal Twilight’s version evokes the cooler minimalist spirit of Reynolds’ original 1958 recording, while playing loose with the arrangement, adding finger-snap percussion, static-charge synthesizers and stabbing tremolo guitar.
Air picks up where The Fire Of Love leaves off with a pulsing bass synth laying the ground for a vocal duet that plays call and response with hand percussion, ping-pong synths, and shimmering guitars that conjure a hazy hollywood landscape in bleeding technicolor.
