I LIKE THAT | AURA – ‘OUT LOUD’
Melbourne’s own Aura has offered a chance for fans to come back for seconds with her latest single ‘Out Loud’. The track has a hazy, dream like sound behind it, with vocals falling into a collection of various styles layered over each other alongside some simply structured beats. Whilst lacking the upfront power of her, it is hard to miss potential comparisons to US artist Banks in the style of the piece. There is a beauty in the vocals that overplays the clear angst of the piece, creating a balance that teases your mind long after you listen to ‘Out Loud’.
If Aura can maintain the high calibre of releases that she has managed with the past two singles, we can only expect that her upcoming EP will be one to embrace. ‘Out Loud’ further emphasises the talent behind both Aura’s vocal capacity and creative direction, indicating that she is without a doubt an artist to keep an eye on over coming months.
