AU.RA, a London via Sydney two-piece, play sun-drenched psychedelic-rock tunes with a not too dissimilar vibe to their counterparts Tame Impala. Tom Crandles and Tim Jenkins got togethe rby chance after meeting in Sydney, after a few bedroom jams in London with a couple of guitars, drum machine and a mic they soon ‘discovered songs amongst the noise’
Standout single ‘Sun’ isn’t complacent about its affiliation to summer with it’s washed-out vocals and bright guitars. The song’s music video is swathed in primary colours and slowed down to capture that summer heat.
AU.RA has had a few features here and there, most notably on the site The Line of Best Fit, but generally most have slept on this band.
Rumour has it that the two-piece are looking to expand and are on the lookout for a drummer and bassist in and around the London area. There’s no time like summer for AU.RA to head to the studio and release something while these rays last!
