DEBUT SINGLE | Aure - The Line
Let us introduce you to the timeless class of Aure, a French singer-songwriter from Paris and Mayway Records' first international signing. Her breathtakingly beautiful debut EP “a few notes” is coming later this year.
An architect by profession, music has always been an important means of expression for Aure. When living in Mexico for a few years, she took her first real steps as a musician and started writing compositions. Her old architecture classmate Ambroise Willaume (aka ‘Sage’, and member of the popular French band ‘Revolver’) helped with the arrangements, while English singer-songwriter Piers Faccini rewrote some of the lyrics in English.
The resulting 6 songs were all recorded in one take in a small Romanesque chapel in the region of the Cevennes in the south of France. The building’s architecture intensifies the stripped-down production of the songs, whose rather slow and careful orchestrations leave plenty of room for the surrounding’s identity to fill in.
The first single taken from the forthcoming EP is the gorgeous “The Line”, evoking the legendary Nico (that voice!), Mariee Sioux or Aldous Harding.
