Acoustic Version video:

One listen to the beautiful, yet chilling, new single ‘Murder Song’ and it’s clear why 19-year-old Norwegian songstress Aurora is one of the most-streamed new artists in the world.

Here, Aurora builds on the sophisticated, icy, electro-pop sound she is already well-loved for. Opening with her trademark spine-tingling vocal, it quickly builds into a rousing track full of layered synths, soaring vocals and powerful drums. But it’s Aurora’s skill for lyrics and storytelling that really belies her age and sets her apart from her contemporaries. This is showcased no better than in the haunting and brilliant acoustic version of the track, which brings to the fore a dark and challenging love song. This is accompanied by an entirely captivating one-take performance video which has, unsurprisingly, become a show-stopping moment of her live set.

Since the release of debut EP ‘Running With The Wolves’ in May this year, Aurora has very quickly clocked up over 16,000,000 streams. Championed by Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1 and Jo Wiley on BBC Radio 2 (who recently had Aurora in for a session on her show) tracks from the EP went on to garner further support from XFM and BBC 6 Music. Further critical acclaim came thick and fast for blog favourite ‘Runaway’ with The 405 describing it as being ‘as addictive as it is bold’ and The Line of Best Fit calling it a crystalline electronic beauty’. Noisey premiered the EP and Aurora was included in The Guardian’s Class of 2015 (alongside Rat Boy and SOAK). Other highlights include topping the Hypemachine chart and making A-List on Apple Music’s New Artist playlist.

After impressing audiences across the festival circuit this summer, Aurora returns to the UK for shows at Hoxton Bar & Grill and Brixton Academy. Watch out for an album coming early 2016.
