Here’s to more post-rock and sleepless nights! Belgian solo project from Déhà, Aurora Borealis presents music that blends atmospheric metal, post-rock and post-metal musings for something out of an insomniac’s dream. I’m a little tired, though not sleepy, so this post will be brief. I’ve not heard anything else from Aurora Borealis or Déhà, but this one bit will hopefully lull me to bed. It’s a good medley of strings and quiet, up until about three quarters of the way in… And then it gets a little heavier, but it still sounds lovely.
I imagine this is an insomniac’s dream. Now, you can take my words two ways: this is precisely the sort of music an insomniac needs, OR this is what an insomniac could dream of, whilst awake. Yes, it’s a bit of an oxymoron. But take a listen, and maybe you’ll agree.
