Aural Air is the evolving contemplative catharsis of Dublin-based singer-songwriter Laura Rai. Ethereal, eerie, and expansive guitar and vocal melodies abound, as if sharing musical notation with the likes of Slowdive, Grouper, and Jeff Buckley. 2018 saw the release of Aural Air's debut EP The Torpor of Minds, available digitally and as a limited edition CD via Little L Records from: https://auralair.bandcamp.com/releases.
Recent performances include Stendhal Festival, Canalaphonic, Sligo Live Festival, Workman’s Club (supporting Nocturnes), and The Sound House.
"Her style is enigmatic, haunting and beguilingly dream-folk, drawing comparisons with St. Vincent, Slowdive, Jeff Buckley, and Warpaint." - The Revue
“The EP is propelled by the pairing of dreamily soaring, ethereal vocals with the kind of ethereal, off-kilter guitar chime you’d hope for on an Angel Olsen, Anna Calvi or Jeff Buckley record.” – The Thin Air
"This right here is an eerie and enigmatic number from Ireland's Aural Air" - Overblown
"We are dealing with a serious Irish talent and song-writer." - Remy's Music and Film Blog
“Adventurous Björk like pop mystery carried by poetic guitar euphony and enlightened with Laura Rai‘s remarkable voice.” – Turn Up The Volume
" ‘Aural Air’ glides and glistens effortlessly on layers of woozy reverberations that ride sparse percussive hits used primarily to direct the listener onto those blissfully ethereal vocalisations and their accompanying wide scoped production" - Primal Music Blog
