Aurora All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend on LP
2015 was a big year for Norwegian teenager Aurora Aksnes; aside from releasing the Running With The Wolves EP and the "Murder Song (5,4,3,2,1)" single, she scored a surprise hit with her cover of Oasis' "Half The World Away." Recorded as the music for UK retailer John Lewis' coveted Christmas advert, "Half The World Away" gave Aurora her first UK Top 10 hit.
Her debut album, All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend, features previous singles "Runaway," "Running With The Wolves" and "Murder Song (5,4,3,2,1)" as well as "Conqueror" and eight other brand new tracks. "Conqueror" is uplifting and anthemic in equal parts, a tale of yearning and independence, showcasing Aurora's uncanny ability to write a hook. Already a live favorite, "Conqueror" sets the benchmark for what fans can expect from the Norwegian's debut album, with foot stomping percussion and lyrics you can't help but sing along to.
It is with All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend that Aurora's true sound will be unleashed into the world. She demonstrates a dark lyricism alongside the rare ability to write music that is both catchy and truly unique. Hook-laden and haunting, each of the twelve astonishing songs shows the breadth of her ability.
