She released short EP albums showcasing a few songs at a time.
And now she’s released her latest album, aurora.
First discovered Bea Miller when I saw a YouTube video of her singing in support of novelist Jennifer Donnelly’s WaterFire Saga.
Her album, Not An Apology, is one of my favourites.
And now, Bea gives us more glorious jams.
So here’s a review of aurora.
(1.) song like you
Mid-tempo anthem. Awesome angst.
(2.) burning bridges
Slow jam bass.
Nursery rhyme musical quote in the chorus.
The catchy rhythmic bass is everything. A fun groove that gets you right away. Back-up vocals help create beautiful harmonies. The bridge features Bea’s voice while the instrumentation dies down. Bass line picks up for the final chorus. Beautiful.
(4.) i can’t breathe
Rhythmic and meditative slow jam.
(5.) like that
(6.) buy me diamonds
Light dance rhythms.
Sexy, jazzy jam. Mid-tempo. Sultry. Different flavour from Bea’s jams on her last album. A bit of a different flavour from the rest of the album. Fun.
Slow and low bass. Brass instruments. The chorus features light instrumentation. Creative.
Light acoustic guitar jams. Tempo picks up in the chorus. Urban and fun.
Slow ballad. Inspirational rising bass line and melodic line. Features a bit of rap. But the vocals are glorious.
Light and bright.
Feel-good jam. Bouncy.
Catchy chorus and bass line.
My favourite jam on this album.
Sweet. Little. Unforgettable. Thing.
Because feminine power.
Feminist artist. Female jams.
(13.) crash&burn (feat. O’Neil Hudson)
Sustained chords. Imitating crashing and burning. Brilliant. Mellow vibes.
(14.) to the grave (feat. Mike Stud)
Energy picks up.
Sweet chorus and vamping chords.
Stream Aurora and support this creative powerhouse.
