BIOGRAPHY

Kevin and Lee Kelly, the husband/wife duo of Summer Aviation, may hail from Seattle, but their music departs to the colorful world of “Sunshine Pop,” with notable stylistic nods to the Roger Nichols Trio, The Carpenters, and Stereolab.

Kevin, long active in Seattle’s Indie music scene as the frontman for the shoegaze/dreampop band, The Melody Unit, plays all instruments and is the band’s lyricist and composer.

Along with his wife Lee, who contributes sweet vocals and percussion, Summer Aviation combines the fresh, supercharged sound of 60s pop arrangements with post-punk avant-garde: Think Burt Bacharach meets My Bloody Valentine.

Review

For the past year, Kevin and Lee Kelly of Summer Aviation have been working feverishly to produce Elevator, their sunshine-tinged debut EP. The Seattle based husband and wife duo has been making memorable 60’s inspired pop tunes sprinkled with bits of post-punk influences for a few years now, and Elevator builds and expands on the early promise of their 7'' debut.

While Summer Aviation is their latest joint project, Kevin has been an active musician in the Seattle music scene for over a decade. He was previously the front man, songwriter and music composer of shoegaze/dreampop band, The Melody Unit. Lee Kelly, on the other hand, is a newcomer to the scene but with her enchantingly sweet voice and skilled percussion, she has quickly found her place within it. Together as Summer Aviation, they create melodies infused with a 60’s vibe, alluring lyrics, and pop smarts. Elevator overflows with colorful “sunshine pop” tunes that are dreamy, catchy and perfectly executed. Within their unique sonic palate, you may detect hints of Roger Nichols Trio, The Carpenters, and Stereolab. Armed with a guitar, a keyboard, and few percussion instruments, Summer Aviation create simple pop confection that sticks in your head, while leaving you hungry for more.
