Airway Lanes entered the Sing Sing studios in Melbourne with Jimi Maroudas to produce their self-titled debut EP Airway Lanes early 2006. Maroudas had previously produced records for Pete Murray and The Living End. The extended play was recorded in 2006, January and then released on 3 April through Stomp.
"Desire", from the EP, started to receive radio airplay early August on Nova FM. Airway Lanes also has many other catchy songs including the much heavier "Ships are Sinking" and the melodic beautiful end track "Down to Earth".
