Strange Stone, c’est ce cœur calcifié qui avait presque lâché l’affaire. C’est aussi ce caillou perdu au milieu de l’Océan indien: La Réunion. AURUS, revenu s’installer chez lui à la Réunion, a puisé dans cette île volcanique la force de réveiller son propre palpitant. Strange Stone est une Ôde à ces deux cailloux. L’un ayant redonné vie à l’autre. Un remerciement à son île natale, qui a permis au sang couleur lave de venir réveiller cette flamme qui s'était presque endormie. C’est en se reconnectant à son île, à son passé, à ses proches qu’ AURUS a su faire face aux obstacles. Retrouver son enfant intérieur, le serrer dans ses bras, faire la paix et embrasser toutes les parties de soi, voilà la recette de cet EP.

Cet EP, réalisé par Mathéo TECHER est le premier volet d'une série de quatre EP intitulée PRISM.


Have you ever felt like your heart was slowly calcifying, on the verge of giving up? AURUS certainly did. But then he returned to his homeland of Reunion Island, a small volcanic paradise lost in the Indian Ocean. And from the depths of this wild and mysterious land, AURUS drew the strength to awaken his own beating heart. That's what 'Strange Stone' is all about: a tribute to the strange, magical energy that pulsates through both AURUS and his homeland. This song is a thank you to the island that rekindled the fire in his veins, that made his blood flow like molten lava once again. But it's also a celebration of self-discovery and inner healing, as AURUS embraces all parts of himself, reconnects with his past and his loved ones, and finds his inner child once more. With its soulful beats, haunting melodies, and heartfelt lyrics, 'Strange Stone' will take you on a journey of self-discovery and exploration. So come, listen and be transported to a world where anything is possible, and where the strangest stones can awaken the deepest passions.

This EP, produced by Mathéo TECHER, is the first installment of a four-part EP series entitled PRISM.

Aurus Paris, France

AURUS is a modern mirage. The incarnation of our contradictions.

After the transgressive polyphony of his last project 3SOMESISTERS, AURUS aka Bastien Picot evokes the « Maloya » of his roots (traditional music from Reunion Island) in an orchestral Pop and percussive shell, at the crossroads of James Blake, Peter Gabriel or Woodkid. ... more
