Norwegian alternative pop songstress AURORA has brought her live show to Australia!
Having kicked off the tour at Brisbane's Fortitude Music Hall on March 5, the singer took to the stage at Sydney's Liberty Hall on Monday evening, before a show-stopping performance at the iconic Sydney Opera House on Tuesday. AURORA will wrap up her Australian dates at Melbourne's Palais Theatre tonight with another sold-out performance.
Last year, the singer unveiled her third studio album, The Gods We Can Touch. The shimmering collection of songs is inspired by Greek mythology and traverses themes of shame, desire and morality. Across the fifteen tracks, AURORA introduces listeners to a number of different gods who embody each track. Giving In To The Love was inspired by Prometheus and the tale of the Greek God using fire to sculpt humans, where as A Dangerous Thing captures the persuasive and seductive characteristics of Peitho.
Teaming up with French artist Pomme on Everything Matters, the duo explore the juxtaposition between seduction and destruction, with moments of endurance representing Atlas. Bringing her signature mesmerising vocals to the body of work, paired with thought-provoking lyricism, the enchanting release weaves together electro-driven sonics with more organic moments, creating a spellbinding listening experience.
AURORA rose to prominence in 2015 with the release of her debut album All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend, following her signing to American label Glassnote. Since then, the singer has released another two records, Infections of a Different Kind (Step I) and A Different Kind of Human (Step II), and featured on the soundtrack to the award winning Disney film Frozen II, which saw her perform the movies lead track, Into The Unknown, on stage, alongside star Idina Menzel, as part of the 92nd Academy Awards.
