The story of Curved Air’s debut album Air Conditioning

Metal Hammer

Curved Air were different. Even in the early 1970s when being individual was the norm, this was one band that somehow stood apart from everyone. And vocalist Sonja Kristina believes she knows why.

“For a start, it was rare for any progressive band at the time to have a female singer. It just didn’t seem to happen. And secondly, we combined rock music with innovation. By that I mean that Darryl [Way, violin/vocals] and Francis [Monkman, guitar/keyboards] were heavily into the sounds coming from the West Coast of America, and also people like Jimi Hendrix. You add in an interest in the modern classical music scene back then and you have Curved Air.
