Mixing frosty electronic textures, spare beats, and clear, emotive vocals, Norwegian singer/songwriter AURORA works is a similar dark pop milieu as artists like Oh Land, Lykke Li and Lorde. Born Aurora Aksnes, near the city of Bergen. she began writing music and lyrics at a young age, eventually releasing her debut single “Awakening” in late 2013.
Her new album A DIFFERENT KIND OF HUMAN (STEP II) released in June via Glassnote Records/AWAL, follows the huge success of her singles "Animal", “The Seed” and “The River”. The new release is the second part of last year’s surprise album of INFECTIONS OF A DIFFERENT KIND - PART 1, which sated her sprawling, fervent global fanbase, and acted as a tantalising taster to a very busy 2019 of new music and touring. "A DIFFERENT KIND OF HUMAN (STEP II)" heralds another new chapter in the story of AURORA, the left field pop musician who seemingly fell from the forests of her native Bergen with her inclusive stories of nature and nurture, love, longing and loss.
