Single taken from Au.Ra's debut album "Jane's Lament"


"The songs each set their spaced-out melodies and textures against body-moving rhythms, so the end product comes off like Primal Scream at their most hallucinatory or My Bloody Valentine at their grooviest." - Stereogum

"Au.Ra effortlessly strike a balance between dreamy and atmospheric guitar rattles, and just the right amount of reverb...the Australian duo construct what feels like worldly guitar pop, with a lackadaisical exuberance that lifts you up and carries you away into it's brightness." - The Line Of Best Fit

"... psychedelic dream-pop with just the right mix of analogue and digital vibrations.." - Prefix

"Anyone who can audibly make their guitars sound like extensions of their own body and mind is good in our books." - This Is Fake DIY

Sydney's Au.Ra, a duo composed of Tim Jenkins and Tom Crandles, are set to release their debut full length on Los Angeles label, felte. Jane's Lament, a work which carefully envelops the listener in dreamy hues of sound, will be available on March 3. Self-Titled premiered a stream of "You're On My Mind" from Jane's Lament and described the track as, "a deeply meditative listen driven by bold drum beats, fog-infused melodies, and guitars that glide and glaze over everything like a muffled shoegaze record." Additionally the band revealed a new video for "Morning" which premiered on Alt Citizen. The site raved, "Au.Ra craft songs that flirt with psychedelic ambiance as well as the charm of pop melodies. Repetition is an integral part of their process, but their keen atmospheric layering makes sure their sound is intriguing, enveloping, and warm."

Made over the course of two years, the LP was birthed from improvised jams the pair play over droning guitars and looped drum beats. Tracks like "Sun," and "Pyramid" emerge slowly out of interplays between simple melodies and layered, reverbed instrumentation.

Au.Ra's "emotive soundscapes" perfectly encase their non-traditional pop songwriting, like on highlight "Morning," where shimmering guitar riffs transport you to a serene, meditative realm. Their repetitive lyrics belie this easy transcendence, sometimes even verging on incantation. These songs evoke a languid drive along a bending highway in autumn, the scenery and light shifting.
