Relaxer, the new album by English indie rock trio alt-J, is the long-awaited follow-up to the band's Grammy-nominated 2014 album This Is All Yours, and the 2012 Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Award-winning debut An Awesome Wave. Between them, the two records have sold in excess of two million copies and their songs have been streamed more than a billion times. The band has headlined festivals across the globe and sold out London’s O2 Arena and New York’s Madison Square Garden. On Relaxer, alt-J has crafted an album that takes the listener on "a bit of a journey." No two songs sound alike, and all are written and recorded with the idiosyncratic details that make alt-J so unique.
Hailing from a Norwegian city whose name translates to “Fjord of Lights,” Aurora (born Aurora Aksnes) released her debut full-length album, All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend, which features her lithe, fairytale-reminiscent songs. A girl makes peace with her murderer and the inherit vulnerability of life in the haunting piano ballad "Murder Song (5,4,3,2,1)." A runaway fades away into the wonder of nature over the course of "Runaway,” her escape marked with harpsichord, live percussion, and an undeniable sense of wonder. And coupled with an anthemic swell of synths and Aurora's triumphant vocal, “Running With the Wolves” makes tapping into one’s lupine side seem not only plausible but downright irresistible.
