Esprit D’Air released their new single “Amethyst” on Feb 22, 2019. The DIY J-Rock outfit successfully crowdfunded their piano-driven rock single in just two days, gathering passionate fans from all over the world to support the release.
Working with producer Sougo Akiyoshi, lead vocalist Kai wrote the track inspired by his birthstone.
“Amethyst is my birthstone,” said Kai. “It is a beautiful purple crystal that can help people manifest their true selves, rather than following others’ expectations. Visually, the artwork and music video were inspired by my time in Iceland and its ethereal landscapes and scenery. The song is about being honest with yourself, whether that’s with love, friendship, or life in general, and by doing so, helping you experience pure happiness.”
The “Amethyst” CD also contains a live version of 2017 single “Guiding Light”, recorded at the band’s sold-out 2018 London show. Following their successful headline tour of UK and Europe last year, the band has announced upcoming performances at Amplified Open Air Festival and Red Stripe Main Stage this summer.
