Anaura

Champion of the Moon.

Celebrating the release of their fourth album, ‘Champion of the Moon’
(2014), Anaura is pursuing distribution and festival dates in Europe and
Scandinavia.

The San Francisco/Oakland dark rock band, finds themselves musically
squashed between Wings, The Cardigans, The Smiths and Weezer-esque
inspired pop gems. Darker melodically brooding tracks bring to mind Kent
(Sweden), The Motorhomes (Sweden), Kashmir (Denmark), and The Stills
(Canada).

Thanks for listening.

Definition:
an aura |’ôrə|
noun (pl. auras) [ usu. in sing. ]

anaura
• a dark pop band hailing from San Francisco, founded in 2003.
“Each song to follow on Champion of the Moon is
just as well-crafted and the guitar tones are shockingly
perfect, allowing every note to shine as intended. “Vinyl”
is a more distorted, straight-forward pop creation the
likes of Weezer, “Blood Letter” contains more arranged
vocals that rise and fall in a Beatles or Jellyfish-esque
fashion, and “Dark Horse” is chalk full of 90’s goodness
as the song pounds its way to a climax as though someone
put Sunny Day Real Estate into a blender with U2. ”
