Rock ‘n’ roll artist Air-Ik showcases cutting-edge garage rock and art rock with its distinctively recreated versions of classic songs.
The singer is a versatile rock artist who writes, performs and records music that’s all about breaking the rules in rock and rolling all the genres together into a melodic concoction of catchy tunes driven by emotional lyrics.
The outcome is a spectrum of pop-driven, alternative rock riffs with sprinkles of metal rock and synthetic fun added to the mix.
Energetic rhythms, airy vocals, and clever arrangements are hallmarks of Air-Ik’s unique brand of originality which he continues to showcase in his new single, a recreation of Call Me by Blondie.
Music is no mere entertainment or an art form. It’s a way of life. And rock music means freedom, passion and open-mindedness as expressed by Ait-Ik, who never leaves his rock start style behind, during his interview with SuperPop.Tv Air-Ik presented himself wearing special makeup and cool black eye delineation.
Rock is a versatile genre, which can give artists like Air-Ik the opportunity to explore their high level of creativity, going from alternative rock to dark pop, sometimes even into classic rock but fused with electronic effects.
Air-Ik took all of that in, blended it with his previous experience as a member of many different rock bands and created his own style, a sound that people enjoy and want to include in their playlists!

The single “Call Me” by Air-Ik is a cover of the classic Blondie song of the same name. The artist says he was inspired to cover this song after hearing the original as the theme for the recently aired Showtime series American Gigolo. After imagining it slowed down and darker, he decided to record it that way.
Originally from Portland, Oregon, where he currently resides, the artist has been working solo under his alias Air-Ik (his current moniker) since 2020, however, he already had a great experience with rock music, resulting from his involvement in several successful bands that have been in existence since the 1990s. Let’s give him a well-deserved adjective, Air-Ik is a rock legend!
As mentioned, the producers of PopHits.Co described his sound as “alternative rock” but exploring his portfolio they discovered something with more variety—it’s got some garage rock in it, but there are also elements of classic rock, art rock, singer-songwriter styles…
He has definitely left his mark on indie music over the years with his unique style of blending genres together into something special. We noticed that Air-Ik has been making waves in the indie rock scene for a while now. His latest single, Call Me, is a cover of the Blondie classic – which you can listen to at the end of this article – and it’s pretty much perfect!
Call Me is a classic, but Air-Ik’s version starts off with a different and slow guitar riff that sounds like it could have come right out of the 80s or 90s—but then it builds into something much more modern as Air-Ik’s vocals begin.
He sings in a deep, smooth tone that is perfectly suited to this cover of an old classic. The whole thing is kind of like listening to an old rock ballad that has been remixed by some sort of dark-pop genius—and it’s amazing!
The reason I say “kind of” when describing this track is because even though it has a lot of elements that remind me of other songs I’ve heard before, there’s something about it that feels completely original and unique at the same time.
If you love rock music and are open-minded, looking for new artists and exploring different styles, then Air-Ik’s music is for you. Check it out, visit his social networks, watch his interview and follow him on Spotify.
