AURORA - Running With The Wolves

With more glacial sublimity, 18 year-old Norwegian Aurora Aksnes returns with her soaring new single, Running With The Wolves. Taken from her debut EP of the same name it's another stunning glimpse for what to expect with its plinky synth notes quickly dissipating in to a whirlwind of pop elegance, truly embracing her dazzling vocal range. "The song is about having the animal instinct inside you come to life" explains AURORA. "Running with them, joining them - the instinct taking over, giving you freedom and making you forget about your human self and all things we humans keep around us in the modern society.  I think humans need to let go a bit more, shake their bodies more often, like the animals do. It's a beautiful thing really. Sometimes when you look at the world, and you see what we've done to it, the way many of us hurt the world we live in, innocent animals, even our own kind! And that kind of makes you want to follow the wolves instead. At least for one night".

Take a listen for yourselves above. 'Running With The Wolves' will be released May 4th through Decca Records.
