Au/Ra Unveils New Song Panic Room

Friday, 09 February 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Au/Ra has unveiled a new track.

Speaking about Panic Room, which follows up last autumn's Outsiders, the Antigua-based musician said:

"Panic room is probably the darkest song I've written. It's about something I don’t feel like a lot of songs talk about, which is anxiety. Panic room, to it's very core, is about battling self-doubt and fear, and how sometimes you can be your biggest enemy. The word panic room ties into the song by saying that when fear consumes you, it automatically puts you into that panicked head space. You think you're safe in the panic room, but really you're avoiding the issue and lying to yourself, when you really should be dealing with the problem."

The song arrives ahead of her stint supporting Lewis Capaldi on his upcoming European tour, which kicks off on February 12 in Nottingham and includes further stops in Dublin, London, Manchester, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Brussels, Berlin and Hamburg.

Towards the end of Pain of Infinity, one of the singles from the Dirty Nil’s new record ‘Master Volume’, Luke Bentham drawls “and another thing, baby...” before ripping a guitar solo.

Or recruit two new members and bounce back with your strongest album to date.

Attan - End Of (Album Review)
Wed 19 Sep 2018
Attan released their debut EP, ‘From Nothing’, three years ago. There wasn’t a whole lot of fanfare, just positive rumblings and a few ‘ones to watch’ recommendations. Anyone who saw the band during that period got it, though. The Norwegians’ sludge-tinged, blackened hardcore was radicalised in the live arena as vocalist Remi Semshaug Langseth went walkabout during the cathartic seven minute epic Edward. He screamed in faces, slapped his heart onto his sleeve and then carved it open for all to see.
