It’s been a few years since Shakira has released anything poptastic, but luckily Danish pop star Aura is here to pick up the slack. Formerly known as Aura Dione, she released a series of very enjoyable songs in the early 2010s, including Geronimo and Friends. Now she’s back, simply as Aura, with another brilliant single. Indian Giver appears on the latest New Music Friday playlist on Spotify, and is expected to appear on her forthcoming third album, along with recent single Love Somebody. Indian Giver has Aura’s distinctive style, but combines it with the Euro-Diplo sound of 2016. Oh, and that bit where it sounds like she’s singing about someone called Roy in the chorus? Well, she actually is! Yes, this song includes the lyric: “Tell Roy and his trusty old trigger I’m an Indian giver.” Gotta love those quirky Europeans.
