Auroravore is "the kind of new music you always hope to discover," says David Brown of KUTX. Brothers Michael, Marcus, and Peter Brown are joined by drummer and childhood friend Erik Garven to form the Austin-based Rock/Pop group Auroravore. Driving bass is layered with synths, delayed guitars, and a refreshing rhythmic consonance that sculpts the music into something special. After nearly a year of production, pulling broad influences into intentional pop music, Auroravore's self-titled debut record is now available for download/streaming on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, and Bandcamp
"Yes, it's truly a band of brothers --- for the most part. Local quartet Auroravore consists of three siblings: Peter, Michael, and Marcus Brown, and honorary brother Erik Garven, who may as well be their brother because the four musicians grew up together in Austin.
Throughout the years, they'd been in several different bands, together and individually, and along the way, their list of influences began to grow. They are each bona fide music fiends, listening to more than their share of albums and keeping up with, as they've explained, "a ridiculous amount of bands," including local bands. In 2008, Erik, Peter, and Michael moved in together and built a studio for the then newly-formed Auroravore, and Marcus joined a couple of years later.
As one would imagine, each member brings quite a few things to the band's sound because of so many different inspirations from multiple musical genres. However, they prefer to keep these influences rather subtle in their own work. Definitely worth checking out."
