Italian vocalist, songwriter, and music producer Noemi Aurora, who is also the co-creator of the Italian electro-metal rock duo Helalyn Flowers, has released her debut solo single on the brand new Belgian post-punk / minimal electro label Spleen+. The single is available now for free download via her Bandcamp page.
“Shining” is born out of moments of isolation during the lockdown, “during which I channelled the trauma of inner seclusion into illuminating emotional surges” so she says. The track is an infectious minimal pop song with a hint of cold wave darkness.
This is the inaugural song heralding an incredibly diverse “Kintsugi” solo album, where listeners can anticipate energetic percussion, dark synth ambiances, dance-inducing electronics, and Noemi’s vocal prowess.
She characterizes her new creation as “a cyclical amalgamation of musical influences that originated from my teenage years, as I roamed the countryside with my trusty cassette walkman, unafraid of being labelled the ‘peculiar’ gothic girl, donning my headphones and immersing myself in my 80s/90s mixtapes which ranged from the most obscure darkwave bands, through rock/alternative, indie electronica, to even the most intense metal. My project sprouted from these roots and has grown and evolved to the present day…”.
The single is available for free download on her Bandcamp page. Highly recommended!
