Aurora masterfully navigates a sparse pop landscape. Fans told her before the show that they were ready to dance, but she admitted that her songs aren’t that type of pop music. Occasionally there is uptempo percussion, but her music is really about invasive insecurities and emotional escapism. You can dance to it, sure, but you can dance to silence too. Aurora herself loves to move onstage, keeping the mic in its stand so she could wave both arms around to the beat. During her finale, “Conqueror,” she took the final twenty seconds or so of instrumental outro to swing, held down by neither mic nor man.
