Format: CD Album
Aerophlot is an intentionally world-weary and melancholy album based on childhood memories and the Russian space race. Having released the folky ‘Flatyre EP’ (2005) and italo disco influenced ‘Look Away Now EP’ (2008), Jakokoyak began recording Aerophlot, his first proper album, a downtempo masterpiece full of wonderous electronic bleeps and beautifully eerie pop melodies. It contains tales about an abandoned Ukrainian city (Prypiat), the first dog in space (Laika), Yuri Gagarin’s very own postcode (Moscow 705) and a private seaside in Sweden (Amine).
