Thinking back on my Songs of the Month for this year, I was surprised to realize I’d never linked Apple Tree from Aurora’s latest album. This is surprising because it is quite possibly the song I’ve listened to most often in 2019.
I definitely wasn’t expecting Aurora to take a foray into quasi-hip hop, and I certainly didn’t expect such a foray to actually be good, but here we are.
So if you ever wanted to hear a strange magical Norwegian girl try to rap and somehow actually kinda pull it off… today is your lucky day.
Serious Nelly Furtado vibes here.
