It’s been a few months since my post about AURORA’s Running With the Wolves EP, and I’m pleased to bring you a review of her recently released single “Murder song (5, 4, 3, 2, 1)”. It’s only bee a few days since it released, but I couldn’t stand putting it off any longer than it already has been.
The song starts off high pitched and melodic with an echoing countdown that leads into the intense lyrics that paint a scene with ease. It picks up pace quickly, and whisks the listener into a sad and eerie story that makes the song resonate in the mind with an intensity that’s impossible to ignore. The song grows and changes with each moment, blending in a gentle intensity to the story line, before cutting away to a minimalist sound at the end. The song’s eerie balance stays at the forefront of the mind after it ends, and it makes the song seem to last just a few seconds longer.
All in all, AURORA still manages to capture my attention with ethereal and beautiful music. It’s a strangely beautiful song that is well worth the listen, and the story told within it seems to double any praise that I could give it. AURORA will remain an artist that I keep a sharp eye on, simply because her music is always so enchanting.
