    This actually came up on my newsfeed on Facebook as an ad and for once I had a listen. It’s Norwegian electro pop. I was a little put off before listening as I found the image a bit contrived but there’s no denying the song has something.

    She seems to have a HUGE MARKETING BUDGET.

    I've seen posters for her everywhere, plus loads of online ads.
    I'm struggling with her, it sounds like so many other Scandi electronic females who do the same thing SO MUCH BETTER.

    Who else do you consider comparable? If there are more I'd like to dive in

    I really like it too. The album is a solid effort and went top 40 yesterday.

    I mean iamamiwhoami and IONNALEE are the obvious comparison, parts of Royksopp's The Understanding and Junior albums, the first Niki + The Dove album, parts of the first Fever Ray album, Bertine Zetlitz's more somber moments...

    Not saying that Aurora is bad at all, I'm just struggling with her having devoured the above over the last however many years of life - truly a sign of OLD AGE setting in.
