SINGLE REVIEW: Exist For Love (AURORA)
SINGLE Exist For Love // ARTIST AURORA
Norwegian sonic sprite AURORA is well versed in weaving spine-tingling beauty, and her latest outing Exist For Love finds utter euphoria in swooning simplicity and sophistication.
Previously dwelling in potent pop waters on her triumphant 2019 release A Different Kind of Human, AURORA (aka Aurora Aksnes) builds on her fantastical identity and launches into an elegant new world with the lush and lilting new ballad Exist For Love introducing a stunning new phase for this Norwegian enchantress.
Still bearing the otherworldly charm fans have grown to adore, Exist For Love finds AURORA wafting vigorously over a bed of acoustic instrumentals and cinematic ambience (arranged by none other than Isobel Waller-Bridge of Fleabag fame), delicately fusing the exquisite humanity and divinity of falling in love with a twist old-Hollywood glamour.
"I thought I didn’t have a love song within me...Until one day a few years ago, when I realized what a heavenly thing love is. Yes, it makes us human, but it also makes us divine. Whatever you’re using that love for. Or who. The touch of it will leave a print in us. It may be newborn love, it might be grief. But still we dare to love. Again and again. And when we get to experience that love, I think we understand why we exist. We exist for love.”- AURORA
Packed full of poignancy and a chance for AURORA to flex her significant songwriting prowess in a delicate new setting, Exist For Love is an indelible outing off the back of an already stacked year for this incredible artist, including performing her hit song Into The Unknown from Disney's Frozen II with Idine Menzel earlier in the year at the 92nd Academy Awards. Add in the fact we've also been graced with a self-directed accompanying video for the tune, and it's hard not to feel the love emanating from AURORA; something the world is desperately needing in abundance right now. Come steal a moment of pure magic and lose yourself in Exist For Love below - but be warned, there are some definite feels ahead.
