Louise Aubrie grew up in London and adopted New York City as a second home. Altogether, she embodies the electrifying moment-to-moment spirit of both. Since beginning her route riding the indie rock electric, the songstress has emblazoned her stamp upon such historic avenues as Abbey Road Studios, Knight Time Studios, and throughout Europe and New England. She embodies an unvarnished gothic spunk reminiscent of the Smiths on her new tune ‘Ours’, particularly in the mesmerizing drone of her tip-for-tap delivery of its verses. Its chorus soars, featuring forward-driving guitar, keys, and percussion that Aubrie deftly leads the charge upon.
‘Ours’ is the second single cut from Aubrie’s upcoming LP, Antonio. On the album, she says, “The title is inspired by a line from the Jacques Brel song ‘La Chanson De Jacky’: ‘Même si on m’appelle Antonio’ – ‘My name would be Antonio’. It’s a brilliant fantastical song about fame being fleeting, and imagining how life might be in the future: being washed up, reflecting on the glory days!! Marc Almond did a brilliant cover of it – one of my favourite songs – and I created a vision of who Antonio might be: an aging European lothario going round the clubs. A lot of the songs were inspired by that image – I don’t know anyone called Antonio in the real world!”
