To celebrate the launch of Riot Expert Record label, and the release of Melbourne three piece RKDA’s debut EP – CS the band played blinding show at Shebeen alongside Aeora and OCDANTAR.
Aeora set the night off with ease. Despite having barely a handful of tracks out in the world, she’s garnering a reputation quickly, impressing all who hear her. This set showed exactly why. Powerful vocals, engaging lyrics and a stage presence expected of acts of a significantly larger size she put on a captivating show. Hidden as a silhouette thanks to the back lighting of the light set up, she was a captivating image, working her way around her small set up. The addition of a guest violinist was a nice touch, adding a depth to the performance, and a cover of Glass Animal’s ‘Gooey’ created a degree of accessibility for those not yet familiar with her work. The three tracks that have been released were presented flawlessly. The set closed on her latest single ‘Medicine’ which despite being strong recorded, became something else live, a force that could not be denied. Aeora is quickly working into being one of the best alt pop acts locally, and it would be a surprise if she wasn’t making larger ripples soon.
