Airport Impressions, a band which features; Errol Sammut, Johann Schembri, Chris Curmi and Steve Farrugia redefined the music scene with their debut album Minutes of a Lifetime back in 2010, giving the general public a feel of what proper pop/rock should sound like, without having the added twists or turns that the foreign music industry might sometimes apply. As a result, this genre has become extremely popular and has also led to the creation of new bands and groups such as Cryptic Street, The Crowns and Planet Seed amongst others.

In music, a hiatus could mean one of two things, the first one being a period of coming together to re-group and ultimately come back with a bag of tricks and the second one is some downtime which lets the ideas flow to the mind. Airport Impressions seem to have combined the best elements of the two possible options leading to the release of their highly anticipate sophomore album Mariette which will be officially launched on the 9th April 2014. Led by the release of the first single Hymns of June, the album sees the band with a mature sound, keeping their pop/rock touch on music with an additional folk feel, a sound which has been endorsed by Of Monsters and Men as well as Mumford and Sons.

The flair for performing has never gone away, and neither has the one for songwriting with band members showing their true creative skills when giving performing in front of the masses as seen earlier this year during the Malta Music Awards held at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre. will be reviewing the album when released, and is looking forward to hearing what lies ahead from this band which has grown in our eyes as the most progressive, and fresh sounding act to feature in the local music scene. Stay tuned for all the latest news from the local music scene.
