Die Bremer Formation EYEVORY hat ihrem Album „Aurora“ einen besonderen Schliff verpasst

Almost three years have passed since the release of Eyevorys concept album "Inphantasia". An eventful and productive time for the progband from Bremen, as singer and bassist Jana Frank reports: "We have had a new drummer for one and a half years, this time a permanent one, which feels very good. Previously we had many changes, had to adjust again and again. Now the chair stands on four legs again." For one year the group has been working on new material. "About forty songs have been written. They were sifted out until the top ten were left for the album," Frank sums up. Her conclusion betrays a certain pride: "'Aurora' feels like a polished diamond, simply because a lot of grinding work has gone into it"

The lyrics of the songs often deal with turning points. "The common denominator is reflected in the title: Aurora means dawn, and it's a symbol of a new beginning." The band describes very personal things, such as the process of a birth. "I wanted to describe the emotions you went through in the song 'Roses' as a journey." Jana is like her bandmate, the flutist and singer Kaya Fischer, a mother of two. Musically there are reminiscences of influences that the two front women love: "'Soulmates' you can clearly hear that Kaya and I are actually children of the 80s, although we didn't actively experience this time. But we love the sound of this era: Genesis, pop in the style of Maggie Reilly or Melissa Etheridge, also old Toto stuff." In order to finance the production, the band again relied on crowdfunding. "The studio recordings were already there in the box and there was film material, we had to be able to present something to the people on the Internet. But nothing was mixed yet, there was no artwork - everything that was missing was generated by crowdfunding."
