Following 2018's Step 1: Infections of a Different Kind by less than a year, Step 2: A Different Kind of Human finds Norwegian singer/fantasist Aurora Aksnes still investigating humanity through a wide-angle lens. Ecological as well as social themes permeate the record, as does her impulse to reach out to the alienated. These ideas are all represented, either literally or symbolically, on "Dance on the Moon." It stars the distinctively pixie-voiced AURORA as an angel. After opening with spare piano, shimmering background atmosphere, and the singer's dreams for a better future ("I hope love will come to us again"), it evolves into a spacy, soaring dance-pop with tight, layered vocal harmonies and a scat-like countermelody. Like much of the record, it's lush, warm, and welcoming, despite the presence of icy timbres, including frequent vocal processing. This is also true of the encouraging, more reflective "Daydreamer" ("I know I'm just a girl/but can I change lives?....I think I can"). AURORA's albums have been both empathic and fanciful from the beginning, but here, via a rousing melody on shimmering, percussive choruses, she issues a call to action: "We become nighttime dreamers, street walkers, small talkers/When we should be daydreamers, and moon walkers, and dream talkers." A few of the album's darker entries are also urgent; the austere "The Seed" warns "You cannot eat money, oh no," and the heavily stylized "Apple Tree" and "Hunger" incorporate hip-hop and Eastern music influences on cautionary, if rhythmically animated tracks. A Different Kind of Human is most compelling when AURORA's vocal performances are allowed room to breathe, as on the captivating title song. While processed vocal harmonies are among the track's otherworldly sounds, the main vocal line is largely exposed and undistorted, a juxtaposition that becomes more profound alongside lyrics like "We have come here for you/And we're coming in peace....This world you live in is not a place for someone like you/Come on let us take you home." It's an album that sticks, both for its theatrical melodies and uncommon benevolence. © Marcy Donelson /TiVo

Aurora's debut EP, the four-track Running with the Wolves, wraps the Norwegian singer/songwriter's emotive, lilting style in haunting, swelling electronic production. It was released shortly before her 19th birthday during a brief international tour on which she sold out rock clubs in Europe and the U.S. on the strength of prior singles "Awakening" and "Under Stars." At once driving, brooding, and melodically whimsical throughout, the center of attention is always her distinctive, crisp vocal tone, but songcraft is not to be overlooked. The yearning lead track "Runaway" appeared in the series finale of the Fox television thriller The Following. © Marcy Donelson /TiVo

Steeped in gelid electronic textures, pulsing beats, and yearning modalities, Aurora's All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend also blends vivid lyrical imagery with parts fantasy and heartache for a haunting full-length debut. The 12-track album by Norwegian singer and songwriter Aurora Aksnes includes two European charters from her prior EP, 2015's Running with the Wolves. Both gray-shaded numbers about being out of place, "Runaway" and "Running with the Wolves" turn out to be the average of what the substantial LP offers rather than standouts. With a soundscape that finds danger lurking in the corners, "Runaway" has echoing water droplet effects, creeping screeches, and windswept transitions among its sparse arrangement and lyrics like "I was running far away, would I run off the world some day?" What sets Aurora apart from the field of dark, spare electro-pop (Lorde, Lykke Li) are elaborate, soaring melodies and a pure, lilting soprano that on several tracks seems presented with minimal studio tampering, an impression made more likely by the singer's reputation for live performance. While much of the album is brooding if not downright wretched -- "Murder Song" has the protagonist recounting the story of her own death, though lyrics are tempered by a club-ready mix -- it's not without moments of lightness. The rousing "Conqueror" is sweetly melodic and decidedly perkier than anything on her debut EP. A song like "I Went Too Far" has a solemn text but an uplifting, synth-swirling chorus and dance-insistent beat. One of the lasting impressions of All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend, as suggested by its title, is a supernatural aura created not just by spacy electronics but by the songwriter's nature-themed lyrics that have her regularly identifying with or immersing herself in the elements ("Walking in my sleep like the naked trees"). Titles like "Black Water Lilies" and "Winter Bird" denote songs about overcoming forces both in the natural and mental realms. Still a teenager at the time of the album's release, Aurora proves to be an already skilled fashioner of dynamic, affecting pop. © Marcy Donelson /TiVo
