Instant gratification. That's the best way to describe the monsters of rock known as Desoto Jones. Going big on their masterful debut with irresistible hooks, incredible lyrics and towering riffs, every song on Aurora hits hard and lingers long. Combining post-hardcore elements with tender lyrics and soaring choruses, this arena-ready wall of sound leaves no stone unturned...nothing left to be desired. Aurora overflows with shimmering hits like "Giant Magnets" and the compelling "Don't Fail Me." Even slow-burners like "Sweet Sun" and the standout "Courtesy Call" crackle with electricity and excitement while holding fast to their emotional foundation. The band's ability to inject undeniable melodies into fiery barnstormers creates a modern-yet-timeless sound that will undoubtedly have fans coming back again and again. Ultimately, Aurora is an album about new starts, renewals and hope. The album title refers to the Roman goddess of the dawn, who streaks across the sky each morning announcing the arrival of the sun. During recording sessions, the father of the band's three brothers passed away. Obviously a confusing and hopeless time, Aurora provided lightŠa reason to continue. "Nonfiction" is a moving, passionate and emotionally charged dedication to their dad. Produced by Chris Badami (Dillinger Escape Plan, The Early November, Midtown, The Starting Line). One of the very best records ever released by Deep Elm.
