Air are responsible for the music and Jarvis Cocker, Neil Hannon and Charlotte together for the texts of which only is a single French language. The duo masterfully interweaves their numerous Keyboards with acoustic guitars, drum computer, glockenspiel and the omnipresent piano, while in the case of the strings producer Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Paul McCartney) provided his insider knowledge.
