All My Demons Greeting Me As a Friend
If there’s a theme to this album, it’s life – celebrating it and embracing it.
Nineteen-year-old Aurora Aksnes, or AURORA, just released the highly anticipated follow up to her 2015 EP, Running With The Wolves. The Norwegian artist garnered critical acclaim following her EP release, gaining the attention of major labels, music critics, and even Katy Perry.
The new 12-track full length album, All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend, depicts a raw, real, and beautiful emotional journey with moments both of extreme power and unhindered vulnerability. The album begins with the delicate number “Runaway” which channels a soft power, somewhere between Florence Welch and Joni Mitchell. It’s a compelling start; a gentle synthpop number about a girl begging to go home – the only place where she belongs, or just the only place left to go.
