When the 19-year old Norwegian singer/songwriter Aurora Aksnes released her debut EP “Running With The Wolves” in May, she’s been already known as one of the biggest discoveries of the recent months. Chiefly thanks to her video “Runaway”, which came out earlier this year and has close to 1 million views already.

What makes the Bergen-based artist stand out from the mighty Scandinavian scene? Although there are many who mix modern Northern pop with the folk song tradition, Aurora’s young yet confident voice creates that kind of special atmosphere that made us fall in love with Joanna Newsom a decade ago.
