“We’re from nowhere,” says Airways singer and main songwriter Jake Daniels. “It’s strange to think we might be getting somewhere.”
Just back from a European tour in support of Deaf Havana, the Peterborough-based four-piece find themselves on the brink of a breakthrough. After supporting the likes of Nothing But Thieves and Razorlight on a string of tours, Airways’ “Starting To Spin” EP began cropping up all over Spotify playlists and has generated over 7 million streams to date. Fans emerged all over the world, and the band was amazed to find the demand was strong enough to fill clubs throughout Europe.
“It’s so weird to see a room full of German or Belgian kids singing all the words to our stuff,” says Daniels.
