“It was hard to be human in my beginning years
because I felt like I had to adapt so much. Even
when I was alone, I tried to behave normally in
my own room. This album celebrates everything
that makes us different.”

From experiencing an unexpected TikTok
renaissance, to recording her upcoming album
in a faraway castle, Aurora Aksnes continues to
captivate with her haunting and hypnotic
melodies. Covering our Winter 2021 issue, the
Norwegian singer-songwriter reflects on why
it’s hard to be human, gradually grasping
privilege, and conjuring a remedy from her
own healing lyricism.
