Our new Single of the Week this week is "Cloudburst" the brand new track by Chicago-based shoegaze band Airiel.
The song is taken from their highly anticipated new album 'Molten Young Lovers', the band's latest LP since 2007's The Battle of Sealand, coming soon from Shelflife Records.
Previously, the group released the Kid Games EP as well as the now sold out Winks & Kisses vinyl set. Unlike Kid Games, these songs were written and developed in live settings before recording them in the studio, calling to the strengths of each band member's creative technique. Utilizing a number of Chicago studios, producer Adam Stilson helped to shape the material into the classic Airiel that you know and love -- it's loud, it's pretty, and you can dance to it.
"Cloudburst" also includes a remix by Navigateur, who previously remixed "Firefly" for the Winks & Kisses vinyl.
