The photo was a picture of frontman Kory Kunze's grandfather with his mother and aunt when they were children, standing in front of his airplane. 'I was feeling nostalgic, both from a family perspective and from a music perspective. My previous band, Fractured Army, was on hiatus and I had a lot of ideas spinning. I was infatuated with the story of my late grandfather, and how he loved to fly, and how he won his airplane in a stove sales contest, of all things. I was also listening to a lot of my favorite albums that I hadn't listened to in quite awhile, like Wilco's Summerteeth and Son Volt's Trace, and I wanted to bring folk instruments back into my music.' Kunze recruited his wife, Holly, into the fold and they started laying down the basic tracks to their debut album, Model Airplanes. 'I pitched the idea to Rod (Campbell) and Jessica (Spitzer) (former bassist and keyboardist from Fractured Army) that I wanted to form a group that combined a live stripped-down drum kit over electronic beats, keyboards, kaossilators, horns, banjo, mandolin, lap steel, acoustic and electric guitars, all handled by the four of us. On the surface, it sounded like a complete mess, but fortunately they were game to try it.' The result was a surprisingly cohesive sound, and if you are a fan of indie pop groups like Broken Social Scene, The Raveonettes, The XX, Cut Copy, or Sufjan Stevens, there is something here for you.
