Like the best in Air’s incomparable catalog, “Once Upon A Time” is tough to hold down, both evocative yet languidly detached, at once rife with instrumentation and as buoyant as, well, air. It’s the first single from Pocket Symphony, and the one for which they just shot a note perfect video. We tend toward hyperbole with the band that gave this blog its name, so we’ll spare you the gush and just let you at the track. It’s awesome. (Sorry couldn’t help it.)
