LA band ARORA (previously SONOS) is a vocals+electronics group who has created a genre of their, with unique avant garde harmonies paired with deep soul. This past July 2013, ARORA released their resonant and addictive new all-original album, BIOLUMINESCENCE.

Two years in the making, "Bioluminescence" perfectly demonstrates the cinematic dream pop sound that is ARORA, marrying dreamy vocals with striking production. ARORA takes the album to the stage using nothing except their five voices and their rig of live looping and effects pedals.

Previous albums include SONOSINGS (2009 on Verve Forecast) and DECEMBER SONGS (2010, self-released). In 2012 they appeared on The Pet Shop Boys' album ELYSIUM. Past appearances include live radio sessions on NPR's Weekend Edition, KCRW, BBC Americana, Studio 360 and Sirius/XM; performances at SXSW '11, Sundance '10, TED, Celtic Connections, ASCAP Awards and accompanying Sara Bareilles at the Orpheum Theater; plus performances at MojaMoja's Pre-Grammy Brunch '12, colleges, clubs and performing arts spaces all around the country.
