Au/Ra - Assassin | Song Review

 Au/Ra has released her new single titled 'Assassin'.

I discovered Au/Ra last year with her EP 'X Games' - I was so invested in her music style and artistic approach. Her lyrics are well written and her voice gives me the chills (in a good way). I loved her as a artist, I felt like she was bringing something different. When she announced that she was releasing a new single, I was so excited and I was so looking forward to hearing it.

'Assassin' follows the same kind-of-sound that her previous music has portrayed. I can hear improvements with the dark-ish vibes it gives off. Her voice is soft, low and quite intriguing. I loved the song as soon as I heard it. She reminds me of Billie Eilish, but I prefer Au/Ra. I feel she is so underrated but her approach to music needs to be heard more.

Au/Ra stated in a e-newsletter 'Writing 'Assassin' was a self realisation. I originally wrote it about someone else, until I realised that it was something I do all the time as well. We all have those moments where we let our dark side take over, where we self-sabotage. It’s so human. So! Not to get too dark – we can get out of that sabotage cycle every time we acknowledge it’s happening. Things do get better, but only if u do something about it.'

Prodigal - When We Bleed

Prodigal is an Alternative Pop/Rock artist from Finland. The nature of his music is to be an eccentric mix of all the different styles he listens to and creates something catchy, immediate and current out of it all. His new single 'When We Bleed' was released independently ahead of his upcoming debut album. 'When We Bleed' reflects on a world where every decision and action seems to be motivated by blatant narcissism of some kind. Trying to navigate these odd times, the song tries to find relief in numbers and the fact that for better or worse, we're never really alone in trying to make sense of it all.
