Today, singer/songwriter Lauren Auder returns with her sublime new single “Quiet.” Released via True Panther and Harvest Records, “Quiet” is Auder’s first new music since the March arrival of her acclaimed EP two caves in. Download/stream “Quiet” HERE.
Written by Auder and produced by Danny L Harle (Charli XCX, Caroline Polachek, Superfruit), “QuietÉ” unfolds with a delicate intensity, each moment illuminating the hypnotic power of her voice. While the track opens on a sparse arrangement of stark piano tones, that dreamy minimalism soon shifts into something far more grandiose, building a wild urgency from Auder’s spellbinding performance and tempestuous beats.
As Auder reveals, “Quiet” marks the start of an exciting new era in her ever-evolving artistry.
“Quiet is the first song in a series that is significant in two ways,” says Auder. “They are the first songs I wrote since coming out publicly, and therefore address this in ways I tended to mystify in the past particularly the difficulty of human interaction, and the disappointments that inevitably arise when you are incapable of being seen as yourself. Naturally, these songs called for an opening-up in my songwriting process. Thus they are also the first songs that I allowed myself to work in more varied and collaborative ways than I have before.”
Originally from Albi (a town in Southwestern France), Auder creates emotionally potent and transportive pop music inspired by everything from hip-hop to post-rock to classical. With a sound akin to Scott Walker singing Lorde songs, Auder’s distinct aesthetic was first glimpsed on her critically lauded 2018 debut EP Who Carry’s You. Released in March 2020, her sophomore EP two caves in delivered the widely adored singles “June 14th” and “meek,” two tracks centered on Auder’s intricate lyricism and mesmerizing vocals. With her live experience including international tours with Christine and the Queens and Amen Dunes, Auder has also emerged as a captivating new presence in the fashion world, working for the likes of Gucci and being tapped as the face for Hedi Slimane’s debut collection for Celine in 2018.
