Reformed in 2016, Esprit D'Air is a Japanese electronic rock/metal solo project led by vocalist, musician, and producer, Kai. As featured on Billboard, HuffPost, Loudwire, BBC Radio, Kerrang! & Louder, their sound is unique and fresh, bringing together hard-hitting aggression with melodic vocals and electronic synthesizers. In 2018, Esprit D'Air won 'Best Metal Album' at The Independent Music Awards in New York, for the release of their debut album, Constellations, judged by an esteemed panel featuring Slayer, Amy Lee (Evanescence), Sepultura & more. Kai is not seeking a major record label but instead, follows a strong DIY ethos and produces everything himself to be as self-sufficient as possible. Consequently, they record and produce their own releases in their own home recording studio. In late 2020, Esprit D'Air released their single, "Leviathan", receiving support and praise from Loudwire, Kerrang! Radio, as well as members of The Sisters Of Mercy, and The Birthday Massacre. In February 2021, Esprit D'Air released their 10th Anniversary Live album. Since March 2021, they have been releasing a new single every six weeks, with their new single 'Guiding Light (Reimagined)' out on July 23rd.
