Time for the second installment of my monthly “post a song I like because I’m lazy” series.
This month being (probably) the twentieth anniversary of the Soulcleaver universe, I decided to post a song that I associate with that setting. Like a lot of authors, I like finding “theme songs” that capture the feel of particular characters or stories.
I have a lot of songs that make me think of various aspects of Soulcleaver, but I’ve settled on Warrior by Norwegian folk-pop singer Aurora Aksnes (or just Aurora, as she prefers to be known). It’s my “theme song” for Seesha Avallen, one of the main heroes of the story. You’ve probably heard me mention her before.
It’s actually kind of eerie how perfectly this song captures Seesha’s story. Adding to the oddness is the fact that Aurora herself actually kind of looks like Seesha. And I came up with Seesha’s look long before I discovered Aurora, so it’s not like she could have subconsciously influenced me or anything.
If you like this, I definitely recommend checking out more of Aurora’s stuff. She has a lot of amazing songs.
