The artist featured today holds a special place in my heart. It´s the first artist I´ve ever visited at a concert and the experience was surreal. Bringing you some scandinavian goodness, I´m bringing you this time: ❄️AURORA ❄️
DISCLAIMER: I am not sponsored. This is just my pure, totally unbiased opinion.
Aurora Aksnes, otherwise known as AURORA, is Norwegian singer-songwriter. She used to be pretty underground and mysterious but became very popular in the recent years (yes, I’m aware that I sound like a hipster).
What I like most about AURORA, besides her amazing electro/indiepop-ish sound is that she is such an amazing person in real life.
When I visited her for the first time, I had actually never heard of her before. My cousin invited me because she had a ticket left, and I thought: “Why the hell not?” Went to this small venue and when she spoke to the crowd she said: “Wow, I’m actually amazed by all the faces that came to see me.” She was just so gentle, kind and down-to-earth that you just HAVE to like her, you know?
While performing she just has this amazing aura that is so difficult to describe. It’s like watching a shy fairy sing. But that also may be because she is ridiculously tiny and makes this weird half-awkward movements with her arms while singing. It’s really astounding to see.
Her music, just like her, is fragile and beautiful at the same time. What I love personall is that she sings about being a stronger person and her music has actual meaning AND catchy songs.
My top 5 songs of AURORA:
- Winter Bird
- Running with the Wolves
- Murder Song
- Half The World Away
Hope I successfully convinced you with at leasy trying to listening to them and I hope you enjoyed this little piece! Let me know what your opinions are or what kind of music you like.
