Echoes of another world resound from the depths of the legendary rabbit hole. Music diffused with moments of silence and escapist dream sequences, freed from time and earthly presence.
AURI begun its life with three people, united through their shared need to hear a kind of music which can‘t be described by words alone. A magical kind of sound to be heard whilst falling down Alice’s rabbit hole. The Finnish singer Johanna Kurkela lent her unique voice, while Troy Donockley and Tuomas Holopainen (both NIGHTWISH) cast their spells with various other instruments. Using selected guest musicians and friends, their self-titled debut album finally took its ultimate form under the direction of sound engineer Tim Oliver, all within the pastoral splendor of ‘Real World’ studios in Southern England. The album will be out on March, 23 and available as digipak CD, 2LP gatefold Vinyl, a limited Earbook and digital.
Before the album release, the band will take us on a journey, delving deep into the magic of AURI, with the release of their second single ‘The Space Between’. The single is available digitally as of now just as its corresponding lyric video, which can be watched here:
