If you want know what a 17-year-old’s brain sounds like, check out precocious artist Au/Ra. Au/Ra was born in Spain, but has since been raised in Antigua by a musical family—her father being renowned German producer Torsten Stenzel. Critics write that “she’s light years ahead of her peers in terms of creative songwriting.” I like her because she has managed to translate the digital anxiety of her generation into a distinct sound. One fan writes, “Am I the only one who thinks Au / Ra is underrated by the world?” I am not sure if 700,000+ views of your video places you in the underrated bin, but based on the numbers her peers are racking up on social media – see below – she definitely has room to stretch her wings.
