BEST NEW SONGS: AURORA - RUNNING WITH THE WOLVES

Aurora - Running With The Wolves

18 year old Norwegian songstress Aurora has been wowing audiences here in America since her debut at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. Her debut EP, Running With The Wolves, came out this spring to critical acclaim and is almost certainly bumping in Bernie Sander’s tour bus.

Like fellow Scandinavian singer Lykke Li, Aurora dabbles in dark pop and appears to be one of those rare talents who sounds better live than on a record. Take for example her recent performance of the title-track off her debut. I want to bathe in these haunting vocals. Goodness. Her voice sounds so pure and beautiful as it floats effortlessly above the assorted strings.

The Bergen-native says she writes music to inspire people. Mission accomplished as far as I’m concerned.

Lastly, we’ll leave you with the lyrics to Auroa Running With The Wolves:

go row the boat to safer grounds
but don't you know we're stronger now
my heart still beats and my skin still feels
my lungs still breathe, my mind still fears

but we're running out of time
oh, the echoes in my mind cry

there's blood on your lies
the sky's open wide
there is nowhere for you to hide
the hunter's moon is shining

i'm running with the wolves tonight
i'm running with the wolves
i'm running with the wolves tonight
i'm running with the wolves
i'm running with the wolves

trick or treat, what would it be?
i walk alone, i'm everything
my ears can hear and my mouth can speak
my spirit talks, i know my soul believes

but we're running out of time
oh, the echoes in my mind cry

there's blood on your lies
the sky's open wide
there is nowhere for you to hide
the hunter's moon is shining

i'm running with the wolves tonight
i'm running with the wolves
i'm running with the wolves tonight
i'm running with the wolves
i'm running with the wolves

a gift, a curse
they track and hurt
say can you dream
in nightmares seems
a million voices, silent screams
where hope is left so incomplete
a million voices, silent screams
where hope is left so incomplete

i'm running with the wolves tonight
i'm running with the wolves
i'm running with the wolves tonight
i'm running with the wolves
i'm running with the wolves
