Single of the Day: AEORA “Fenceline” (2017)

AEORA isn’t content to just take steps forward. Girl be taking strides. “Boss-y” firmly planted the Melbourne artist in line with the likes of Evangeline, Woodes and SATSUMA – three of my favourite songwriters and vocalists coming through at the moment, but damn it, new single “Fenceline” is a belter.

Still playing in the murky waters of dark, sultry and confident production, AEORA’s vocals have strengthened off the back of “Boss-y” and numerous live shows where she has been given the prime opportunity to project. Dealing with a relationship provoking self-doubt and a sense of isolation, AEORA (Lisa Spencer) describes the origins of “Fenceline”.

“I felt weak, like I had lost myself. When it ended, I found myself trying to regain strength and fight for my identity. At times I felt like I couldn’t quite get there and rested somewhere in the middle. The story concludes, where I look at where I am now and how I’ve grown, kind of like saying, ‘Look at me now’.”
