This lady should go into history as one of the undisputed musical artists after this hour's sonic waves.
As the first tunes start playing I did not have in-depth knowledge of AURORA, other than what has been played on mainstream radio, therefore not very much. Now I'm on the verge of being completely saved!
This is so complete and virtuos that I want to cry, laugh, dance and sway in devotion. It is a pleasure to witness. I feel in love with Aurora and the 3500 people in the crowd. I’m reluctant to use the expression natural child, but I'm also struggling to get it out of my mind.
The gestures, the language of movement, the outfit, the voice, and the fact that she wear all her feelings on the skin is really hard to get away from, despite some songs heavy electronic production and massive arrangement.
Even when she communicates verbally with the audience, she demonstrates a down to earth personality and an ability to touch the audience that are rare. It all flows so seamlessly and beautifully.
The vocal appearance has clear references to Kate Bush's sound-coded vocabulary and heavenly melodies, and Sinead O'Connor's glottis, though more frequent. The intricate oooing pre-chorus is of another world.
Yes, AURORA's music is of sublime character. So sublime that even non-humanoid organisms are attracted to it. As she herself said, “do you see how the seagull’s enjoys the music” It is quite clear that both the tone and the audience are in her power.
