A captivating pop/rock ballad that houses gorgeous lyricism and multiple catchy melodies that grip you from the opening bars, “Haunt Me” is Aura Davis at her absolute best.
This song is an anthem for the lonely. Expanding on Davis’ main musical influences Julia Michaels, Michelle Branch, Porcupine Tree, Riverside and God is an Astronaut. Housing a deep-rooted love for progressive, melancholic rock music, this new track explores rich sonic landscapes with maturity and grace.
The story is deeply personal yet accessible. Much more than merely a love song, “Haunt Me” delves into the little, dark moments after a breakup where you feel lost and confused. Recorded in full at her home studio alongside Pascal Von Allmen, the production is lush and the perfect conduit for Davis’ emotive performance to peruse.
Davis spoke on the song’s inception:
“I wrote the song on my own on a simple acoustic guitar. As always, I played it for Pascal, who is my song writing partner and sound engineer. We immediately knew what to do with it and so we spent a whole weekend in our attic studio and worked out the final production of it. The favourite thing about this song to me is the hauntingly dramatic beautiful bassline Pascal came up with. It just matched my intention completely and adds such a haunting dramatic feel to it.”
A stunning song that gets better and better after every listen, “Haunt Me” is defined by its well-made and highly emotive poetry interlaced throughout its gorgeous chord progressions. The perfect introduction to Davis’ eclectic discography, stream “Haunt Me” now!
