If you’re in the mood for a bit of a different concert experience, please please please check out the masterpiece that is AURORA.
The Norwegian singer-songwriter takes on a church in her recent Christmas concert film accompanied by her band, an orchestra, choir, vaulted ceilings and her impeccable David Bowie cover of Life On Mars?.
Her beautifully spooky voice fills Nidaros Cathedral in Norway and will leave you in complete wonder. If you close your eyes and listen, you might just feel like a dreamy fairy in a far away forest. She’s absolute magic. She’s soft, strong, folksy and I smile at the touch of a bit of the late Dolores O’Riordan.
AURORA is one of those artists you can hear and feel emotion in everything she does. The slightest flick of her finger and a distant stare can transport you into the world this talented performer has built for herself. When a song ends and she blinks, you can see her fall out of her world, and back into reality.
At a young 21 years-old, she sings with such conviction as she tells the tales of the forests she often escapes to during her creative process.
