Cover Me has seen a sudden influx of Metallica covers…a discovery by a new generation of some deep and dark 80’s/90’s hard rock music. Interestingly, the most compelling covers are coming from female singers with serious chops. We recently heard Caroline Baran and Postmodern Jukebox cover “Nothing Else Matters” with a jazzy, soulful vibe and now we can add Aurora to the mix as well.
Aurora consists of Louise Roussety and Owen Chesterton from Australia pumping out “stripped back, southern tinged, folk inflected” songs with a simple recipe of voice and acoustic guitar. Much like the Postmodern Jukebox jazz band, it’s an unlikely setup for a Metallica cover.
