    Aura Rock Similarity

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    hey while i was listening to kavinsky's nightcall ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7az3_-lvmNk& ) i recognized a similar synth like the "aura rock" synth from too long // steam machine from alive 2007, what do you think? was it guy-man's influence?

    i dont think so. i've heard that 'aura rock' sounding line a few places- the most prominent being in digitalism's 'anything new' (trust me. you'll hear it and freak...) but that was released earlier than alive.

    i just think its a good, common tune a lot of people like. but to be honest, i can't really hear it that well in nightcall. you'd have to pretty much tell me 'OH LOOK, THIS IS SIMILAR TO AURA ROCK' to make me hunt for a comparison.

    The similarity is due to the fact that both songs utilize the same synth (Moog Voyager).

    i think it's more like... similar timing/sound, but it doesn't seem to me like the notes are actually the same or anything like that...

    I hear Aura Rock in Cry For You by September. The notes are exactly the same I swear.

    Try and check out "Look" from Sebastian Telliers "Sexuality" album.

    Guy-Man produced both, and to my ears Nightcall sounds like some kind of rework of the same ideas with some better vocals layered over it.

    Re: Aura Rock Similarity

    I don't know if anyone has ever noticed but I always thought that 'Aura Rock' was sampling Jimmy Somervilles Smalltown Boy - If you listen at 0:45 the notes are almost exactly the same. http://youtu.be/fBSek9qTQhA?t=42s
