Airport Novels / Press

“The music of Airport Novels embodies the band’s collective influences, which range wildly from Cursive, Bright Eyes and Elvis Costello to All That Remains, Ke$ha and Blink-182. Shapiro simply calls it the 'no coast' sound.”

“The ep, “The Tourist”, is a first for the band but Airport Novels is not the first go around for members Peter Shapiro (guitar/vocals) and drummer Kyle Lohman. The dynamic duo have been in other bands together including The Great Northern (named for the hotel in the TV series “Twin Peaks”) and Within The Willows but Airport Novels is their most cohesive band yet. Formed in a basement in Atchison, KS, Airport Novels is the first band featuring Lohman & Shapiro that has the ability to stay in one piece and to find the harmony among its members needed to get to the next level. That’s just my opinion. Airport Novels is easily the best and most well-rounded band Shapiro and Lohman have been involved in. “The Tourist” should be interesting for the indie types out there as will as lovers of all faucets of alternative rock.”
