Air Traffic: Album Out Today (US)

While Air Traffic's sound, driving piano-led rock and introspective vocals, might be falling out of favor in their homeland, it seems that these are the UK bands that do the best here in the States -- just look at the album sales of Coldplay, Keane and Snow Patrol. Coming from the small seaside town of Bournemouth, the band eschewed any pressures that a local scene might thrust upon them and the band was able to develop their own style. Says lead singer Chris Wall, "There are no music venues, and absolutely no pressure to sound like anyone else. So you have the potential to develop your own style."

Fractured Life is out today on Astralwerks.
