Robbing Millions share the bouncy instant pop moment “In The No Air”

Our Belgian friends of Robbing Millions are dreaming big with the release of their self-titled LP! And it looks like an international audience is already welcoming them with open arms! Listen to their new track “In The No Air“.

Robbing Millions, which comprises of Lucien Fraipont (guitars/vocals), Gaspard Ryelandt (vocals), Daniel Bleikolm (keys), Leo Campbell (bass/guitar), and Jakob Warmenbol (drums), has received support from The Music Ninja, The 405, Consequence of Sound, Brooklyn Vegan, and of course HighClouds! BELGIAN POWER! Their music draws inspiration from bands in the new psychedelic school to pop, rock, jazz and even traditional Congolese music.

About “In The No Air”:

The track is an ode to Robert Wyatt’s number of the same name, and describes a bickering couple with a dog who have fallen on hard times. Their last hope is a holiday which they then appear unable to afford. Complete with the ultimate anti-hero phrase: “When I go out I picture myself in a movie – I am the hero who’s lost a lot of weight.”

The track is particularly catchy. It abandons a bit the bedroom smooth psychedelia that we are used to hearing in their track in favor of a bouncy instant pop music.
