Biography

Ether Aura is no longer an active band. Over the course of a couple of years, Kate and Tony transitioned into a new style and sound and eventually became The Blueflowers and are now performing indie/americana/gothic country with friends, Erica, Dave and Jim on bass, acoustic guitar and the drums, respectively.

The ETHER AURA albums CRASH and BEFORE WE COULD SING can be purchased at CDBaby, iTunes or from EMusic.

Here is what one person had to say about them? What do you have to say?

“Has there ever been so much shoegazing since those halcyon daze, circa 1990? Especially coming out of the USA? Probably not, but it’s certainly our gain. Ether Aura repeat the trick pretty well. (Or to coin a UK phrase, “well pretty”!) Of course, there was Shoegaze and there was Shoegaze. Ether Aura doesn’t subscribe to the Slowdive manifesto of dreamy atmospherics. As you’ll no doubt read elsewhere, the Detroit band are cast squarely in the mold of Curve, Lush, or even Garbage.

Yet this isn’t the limit of their aspirations. Rather, it’s the beginning, because to define Ether Aura in terms of either their contemporaries (Soundpool, The Lost Patrol, etc), or their aforementioned influences, rather overlooks their undeniable excellence. Or should I say “brilliance”, because in both senses of the word, Ether Aura delivers. These songs are crafted with a loving sheen. Eleven glossy Polaroids, these songs and not a duff track in sight.
