19 year old AURORA has come so far this last year, and continues to rise as one of Norwegian’s great musical exports.
She shares her video for ‘I Went Too Far’, which has been directed by directorial duo Arni & Kinski (Florence + The Machine, Editors, Snow Patrol, Sigur Rós).
Aurora is presented as a split personality. An ambitious video, laden with metaphor, it is twinned perfectly with an emotional track that is equally open to interpretation.
Aurora says of the track:
“When I was 9 I wrote most of this song, I watched someone brave and kind not demanding the respect and love they deserved. Growing up I realized these things happen all around us, sometimes worse than others. We shouldn’t be crawling on our knees to be recognized, loved and accepted, because that is no good love. Love should only be beautiful, not horrible. The sooner we learn that, the longer we have to learn to be kind to ourselves. And then demand to be treated kindly.”
