11 Dec Au.Ra – Sun

Au.Ra is the new project from Tim Jenkins of Parades and Tom Crandles of Colours.

Their first song to hit the interwebs is called Sun and is an apt name for a track that permeates with brilliant and bright free flowing guitars and gleaming synths that fade in and out sporadically.

The song also manages to maintain a very lax, dreamy quality through the hypnotic drums and musing, introspective vocals.

It at once captures the astral radiance and splendour of the Sun and the calming, lulling effect said star can have on us on a fine Summer’s day.

I’m listening to it right now in my glorified igloo of a flat and can almost feel my toes.
