Aurora, “A Dangerous Thing”
Aurora’s latest preview of new album The Gods We Can Touch, out Jan. 21, allows the Norwegian pop star to muse on the gray areas between beauty and violence while utilizing her whole range, sliding up into sky-high notes and delivering other lines as hushed warnings. Both intimate and universal, “A Dangerous Thing” sounds like a bridge toward even more listeners for the multi-talented singer-songwriter. – Jason Lipshutz
