North London genre-bending band Aurora Dee Rayne officially started his career in 2012 after producer Stephen Raynes and Danielle Kranendonk met in a kitchen in north London. The pair began working together and later added other musicians Tristan Williamswho co-produces and supplies live drums, Nicholas Johnson on keys, Richard Summers adding bass and guitar and additional vocals and guitar from Yohan Forbes. Fast forward to 2023, the band recently released their latest EP Bands Of Hot Plasmalast month and now they return with video game inspired visuals for the outstanding track titled “Underwater Shapeshifter”.
The latest experimental soul-laden track is a mix of sounds that showcase the band’s unbridled creativity as they push the envelope with dreamy and ethereal sounds steeped in classic neo-soul frameworks. The track is of course led by Danielle’s commanding vocals and presence as she seamlessly floats over the sublime backdrop that lies before her. The accompanying visuals also tap into the song’s theme, which focuses on the endless possibilities of the unknown as you shape-shift into a new exciting world where anything can be achieved. We see Danielle crossing an alien world via a multi-terrain vehicle. We also get to see the vast and unknown world filled with futuristic creatures psychedelic visual effects and meta elements that explore growth.
