Aurelia - Are We Losing

Introducing enigmatic Australian singer/songwriter Aurelia, who after having carved out a reputation for herself working behind the scenes in the industry with some of the biggest names in music, is now turning her focus on her own solo career, starting with the release of her debut single called "Are We Losing", a song that was recorded without the use of any musical instruments. The beats and percussive elements were created by recording the sound of Aurelia practicing her Martial Arts. The synths, bass, and all other melodic sounds were created using vocal samples done by Aurelia herself.

Over the past 12 months Aurelia has spent time developing her own sound, and has fiercely pursued the vision of how she sees her own music forming with unwavering determination. Aurelia says it’s as a reaction to having fought a constant battle in the industry, "To not have my creative freedom dominated by anything other than my artistic integrity", that she has decided to release the demo for the track "Are We Losing" she says, "Recording the 'Are We Losing' demo was a pivotal experience for me of how magical I think making music should feel. This, and the fact that Are We Losing is essentially about freedom and abandon, lead me to the realisation that I’m free to release whatever I want, so I am".

With no direct musical influences, Aurelia's style has developed from a sense of rhythmic flow born out of her Martial Arts practices. It’s this unique formation that permeates every facet of her art, and is what makes her melodies and lyrics as distinct and striking as they are beautiful.
