Introducing Ibiza-born, Antigua-raised newcomer Au/Ra, who has today unveiled her very promising debut single entitled "Concrete Jungle" which opens with a darkly pitched vocal riff and blends it with minimal, glitchy production that push Au/Ra's vocal to the forefront, extracting surrealist lyrics from every day observations as she sings, "Cracks in the pavement, scorpions, abandoned retail emporiums. Amazon Prime, the new world power." The single takes inspiration from the juxtaposition between her relatively isolated upbringing and that of someone brought up in a large town or city. With "Concrete Jungle" serving as a fitting introduction to Au/Ras sound, it's her love of marrying make-believe with reality and presenting it with infectious pop melodies that will no doubt leave listeners hungry for more.
Speaking on the track Au/RA says:
"'Concrete Jungle' was inspired by taking trips to big cities when I come from an island. It's about human nature, how we're all connected."
Listen to "Concrete Jungle" below.
"Concrete Jungle" will be released on October 14th via 0E0E.
