Following their successful release of their new album, Constellations, Esprit D’Air have just announced that their new single Ignition will drop on August 18.

About Ignition, vocalist Kai has this to say:

“The song is about someone imagining themselves with a different life if they had made different choices. Whilst driving through the city, they are thinking about the choices they have made in the past. It depicts the moment of someone reflecting oneself and making an important decision.

The lyrics don’t tell you what the person ends up doing, maybe they are going to leave the city, or stay there to start doing something they have never experienced. Like in real life, there will be some life-changing decisions, some that can make you feel anxious. However, there are some paths that you can only discover from having the courage to take it.”

Esprit D’Air had lineup struggles with their brief activity between 2010 and 2013, but since reforming last year, the DIY three-piece have gone from strength to strength—releasing a full-length album, three singles and booking a huge UK tour in 2018.

Esprit D’Air will be celebrating the release of their new album with a 7-date UK tour. Tickets for the Constellations Tour are already on sale:

Reformed in 2016, Esprit D’Air are not seeking a major record label, but instead, have a strong DIY ethos, and aim to be as self-sufficient as possible, producing everything themselves under their own record label, Starstorm Records. Consequently, they record, mix and master their own releases in their own home recording studio.
