The Airplane Boys, comprised of Beck Motley and Bon Voyage, are a genre-bending duo hailing from Toronto, Canada. In 2010, they experienced a breakthrough when their debut mixtape, Where’ve You Been (download it here ), quickly spread across the Internet, garnering coverage from major music blogs and helping etch their names into the minds of, not only fans, but also their music industry peers.
Now, with 2012 underway, they are prepping the follow-up, which they recently revealed would be titled Alignment and would come in February. Additionally, they are gearing up for an appearance at this year’s Coachella Music Festival in Southern California in April.
While in Los Angeles in late 2011, we were able to catch up with the Airplane Boys to talk about their success thus far, their beginnings and where the name came from, getting positive feedback from the likes of Will.i.am, Big Sean and Lupe Fiasco … and of course, what’s to come.
