It is as if pure magic runs through AURORA’s veins. Enchanting by name and by nature, there’s something decidedly singular and strange about this tiny Nordic
musician with the massive talent. With an eye-watering 200 million+ streams and 500,000+ sales for her stunning 2016 debut album, ‘All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend’, it’s hard to believe that the dynamic Norwegian singer/songwriter is still only 21, and AURORA is now pushing things forward like never before. “There’s a deeper understanding of myself and what I want to say and do than on my first album.
It’s more tuned into my soul and who I am,” explains the Bergen-based artist of her new material. “It’s about the many, many different aspects of what it is to be human. It covers the way we hurt and we love and the way we are so beautiful but also so awful.” See, AURORA isn’t just a singer, but a warrior, a sage and a protector. Oh, and a bloody good songwriter to boot.
Recorded in a fairytale studio/chateau in the middle of nowhere, somewhere out in the south of France, her new songs veer from the personal to the political,
taking in everything from break-ups and death to feminism and environmentalism. These are songs you can find solace in but also songs that pose questions. “The world is becoming really quite chaotic,” says AURORA of the swirling uncertainty reflected in those soon-to-be-shared new tunes, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. “I think it’s good for us. It’s good to get tastes of this chaos so we can
understand the places where it happens all the time better.”
