“I won’t let you down”
AIRWAYS are an indie rock band from Peterborough, England. They started making music in 2015. They sound like Arctic Monkeys and Jamie T. They are influenced by The Kooks, Kasabian and Arctic Monkeys, One Foot (July'16) is their second single and while it kicks off mellow and trippy once the guitars kick in it's a big ball bag stomper.
