TUNE Shaam Larein - Aurora
Shaam Larein shows us an abysmal darkness with the debut single 'Aurora', a taste of her debut album 'Sculpture'
With the debut single 'Aurora', Shaam Larein shows us an abysmal darkness and we get a taste of the upcoming debut album 'Sculpture' which will be released early next year on Icon's Creating Evil Art (late January 2020). This is how Shaam describes her debut single: "Aurora is a chaos that lives inside me, a depiction between dream and reality, a praise, an echo that will never be forgotten."
The music is written with three strong female voices in focus and the choir is allowed to take as much space as the lead song. It is dark and barren but with beauty that shines through the desperation.
“I listen to really hard, alternative music myself, so my inspiration comes naturally from there. However, I think we add something new to the alternative music scene with the music I create, which is basically heavy rock,” explains Shaam.
Shaam Larein's music allows the listener to use their imagination for creating their own worlds. The listener is given the opportunity to meet the heavy music from a new perspective with the help of a different color palette that shows that Shaam has her roots in the Middle East. On the upcoming album for example, one of the songs is sung in Arabic.
Shaam says: “Since I come from the Middle East myself, it becomes quite obvious in my creation that that touch comes in and mixes with the heavy rock we play. It may not be so obvious to all listeners, but it usually falls into place for those who knows the Middle Eastern sound. The scales are pretty clear in the songs. "
Shaam Larein's upcoming album is full of emotional contrasts; stripped, heavy rock and dragging guitar melodies interwoven with theatrical song delivery. Her dramatic, confident expression on stage comes from the young years at the theater and her sense of drama has become her signature.
