farewell to air france from memory tapes

Swedish duo Air France released the single “It Feels Good To Be Around You” last fall with the hope of finally issuing a debut full length this year. This week, they abruptly called it quits, saying:

“We have probably produced 7 albums since (2009 EP) No Way Down; a UK Garage record, a house record, an r ‘n’ b record… but we’ve never been able to finish anything, nothing was ever good enough. We have tried so hard, and we truly gave it all we had. And now we have decided to stop trying, even though it breaks our hearts.”

I suppose you have to commend them on knowing when to quit. In the wake of the news, many artists took to twitter to express their regret. Memory Tapes took that one further, putting together a remix of that final single because as he said “honestly I think of Henrik and Joel as possibly the funniest people I’ve ever met. Miss you AF.”
