Air Traffic are a British alternative rock band from Bournemouth. The band consists of pianist/lead vocalist Chris Wall, guitarist Tom Pritchard and bassist Jim Maddock. The band's name originates from when they used to rehearse in an industrial unit next to Hurn Airport, where air traffic control signals could be picked up on their amplifiers. Their music features heavy use of piano, and they have been described by NME to be like "Supergrass covering Little Richard". The band have received mainstream success due to the release of their single "Shooting Star", and the release of their widely acclaimed debut album, Fractured Life. The band are currently working on their second album.
