Today, Antigua based rising artist Au/Ra releases her atmospheric new single“Outsiders,” listen HERE.
“I’ve always kind of felt like an outsider,” she muses. “Not just because of growing up in the middle of nowhere, but also because I’ve always just been a bit introverted. I wanted to make a song for people who don’t feel like they fit in, and just say, ‘It’s okay to be a bit weird. Whoever you are, you shouldn’t feel less powerful just because you don’t fit in with the typical in crowd.’” says Au/Ra.
Au/Ra, born in Ibiza, has a rich linguistic and cultural background that gives her the ability at 15 to write glistening alternative pop songs that speak to everyone. Her debut single “Concrete Jungle” and track “Kicks” have 20 million combined streams worldwide.
Au/Ra is providing a kind of space where misfits feel at home and where the listener gets to peer for a minute through the lens of an artist who has simultaneously grown up outside the system but who speaks with the zeitgeist of her generation.
