After surprise releasing her brilliant album 'Infections Of A Different Kind – Step 1' last year, It looks like we are gearing up to hear Step 2 as AURORA unveils a brand new single.
The new track 'Animal' was produced by the ‘My Riot’ production team of Tim Bran and Roy Kerr (London Grammar, Primal Scream), Magnus Skylstad and AURORA herself, and looks set to be the first of many new releases from the frontwoman in the year ahead.
Speaking about the new single, she said, “I spend a lot of time thinking about humans. And I wanted to make a song wrapped in a blanket of obliviousness whilst speaking the wonderful and horrible truth that I see in us. We are always thriving for something. If it’s love, money, sex, success, power or just a bigger piece of a delicious chocolate cake. It’s very interesting. Its grotesque. It’s beautiful. We are always hunting for something. We are animals hunting for animals.”
The cut also comes accompanied by a new video directed by Tim Mattia, who goes on to explain the new clip, “It was great to be invited to go inside Aurora's head for a little bit of time while we worked on this project together. It was a hugely collaborative experience, and I think that can be seen on screen, as our ideas and aesthetics melded together to create the video. She is such a unique and talented artist, who looks at the world in a very fresh and unusual way; which in turn seemed to affect everyone around her, especially on the shoot day itself, entirely positively. Looking forward to doing it again!”
