From the gentle fade in of Aurora Hymn to the final buzzing notes of its psychedelic twin, Aurora Hum, this album is a sonic journey as well as a spiritual one. While themes of love and hope are celebrated, darker moments also exist, reminding the listener that the joy of life can also be riddled with uncertainty.
