It's loud. It's pretty. You can dance to it.


In 1997, Jeremy Wrenn formed a two-man shoegaze project called Airiel. Fast forward to 2012 and the band is four members strong, has toured nationally and internationally, released two singles, five EP’s (including a box set), one full length album and tracks for multiple compilations.

Recorded and produced by the band itself, Airiel has just finished Kid Games, a brand new four track EP for Shelflife. Bringing in many of the elements that formed Airiel’s foundation, Andrew Marrah and Chase Johnson’s drum machines and synths make a larger presence. This produced a new sound that keeps the elements that make Airiel great; catchy melodies, lush guitars, danceable rhythms and lasting dreaminess. “Kid Games” also marks the return of guest vocalist Stella Tran, who’s first appearance was on “Firefly” from the Melted EP of the Winks & Kisses box set.
