LAIR is an incredibly unique and exciting Irish talent. Readying the second EP on Eomac’s Eotrax, she takes the label in a vastly different direction to Eomac’s first release Temple Of The Jaguar. Stemming from a background in classical and traditional singing, Laura Kilty now has a diverse range of talents, classifying herself as a composer, producer, vocalist, artist, sound-healer and yoga teacher. She also has a well-being blog which you can check out here.
Residing under many aliases including LuminouSounds for healing music and noeverything (with Eomac), Laura Kilty creates a wide range of sounds that all have a common theme of depth, subtlety and emotion. As LAIR, she cites her work as having “elements of mysticism, sacred geometry, energy, sound with intention and just sounds I love formed to make music I love.” Having listened to her LAIR EP, in its intense, gripping and emotive range, we can certainly vouch for these elements.
LAIR is out on June 9th and features two stellar Rrose remixes (one only on digital). You can pre-order the EP on vinyl and digital. Ahead of this release, we invited LAIR to share with us four tracks that inspire various elements of social change. We’ll leave you in her very capable hands…
“To me, so many of the issues we as a global society are facing today are deeply linked and inter-twined but in my experience the majority of people are not speaking about them in that way. I find it impossible to choose one issue within the theme of social change in terms of what could actually have an impact/what needs to shift in order for a fairer and more peaceful society.
Instead, as I’m choosing four tracks, I’ve picked four areas that for me are absolutely tied in terms of ‘problem’ and potential ‘positive’ outcome. And if these were sorted, I feel huge social change in all areas and on all levels would come about. Each track represents that one area.
3. The Environment
The four tracks I’ve chosen are by artists I find truly inspiring and have definitely in some way influenced me as a human and musician, and therefore my upcoming EP also.
In my Sound healing work, I have seen time and again how powerful sound/music is as an instigator for change on the personal level, so to me it feels inevitable that it has huge potential as an instrument for change on the macro level. Thus, this feels like a really cool way to integrate those things, thanks for the opportunity!”
