Airbag emerged in its present form in 1999, after spent several years as The Pink Floyd Experince that also still exists.
The musical inspiration comes from a huge variety of artists, Pink Floyd, Marillion, Radiohead, David Sylvian, Talk Talk, U2, Porcupine Tree, Chroma Key and A-ha to name a few. Most people will hear familiar things in the music, but the band has still managed to create something unique and can be seen as a creative community.
In 2004 Airbag released the demo «Come On In», which was very well received.In October 2006 «Sounds That I Hear» was released for downloading through the bands website. The response was incredible and after just two months the complete album had been downloaded more than 1200 times.
The feedback has been good, people from all over the world have given very positive feedback. The album has been reviewed on several websites, on radiostations and in magazines. The music magazine Classic Rock wrote this in their August 2007 issue: «This Norwegian five-piece specialise in prog at it most chilled, honeyed and soothing. Much of this is reminiscent of Coldplay doing Pink Floyd covers. Believe us it’s a recommendation.
