DISCOVER: Finding Aurora

Hailing from Newport (Wales) with inspiration from the grunge alt rock gods themselves, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden, Finding Aurora came together in 2019.

Now in 2023, they release their latest single, “The Ever-Lasting”.

With lyrics that touch on a relationship that’s gone south and music that allows the foursome to channel their own inner rock gods, “The Ever-Lasting” is filled with wailing guitars, driving bass and drums.

The chorus is hooky and catchy and plants a decent earworm into the cranium plus the vocals have a wonderful late 90’s early 00’s scream that makes me think of Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl.

Same from the band says this of the their inspiration to write music,

I try to find inspiration in anything, which is something that has materialised over the years of playing music. I find inspiration in a lot of aspects of life, but a lot of the best songs come from moments, people, times and those kind of things which have an emotional attachment to your heart. They can be good or bad things, that’s the beauty of writing music.
