Orouni’s Nora isn’t Batty.


Orouni – Nora (Naked)

“Nora (Naked)” is another beautiful vignette written by our man Rémi Antoni. It captures the awakening and departure of Nora, the protagonist of Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House”, no mean feat in 3-minute pop tune and another illustration of the craft of Orouni. It also strikes a modern chord given the #MeToo movement, new light through old windows if you will. I had never read “A Doll’s House” until Rémi contacted us about this song last year. Thankfully I have read it now and can say it’s a cracker (see, we do book reviews as well). I am rather taken with the video, directed by Shanti Masud. Emma Broughton proves herself a natural in front of the camera as well as behind the microphone.

The song appears the compilation “Le Motel, ma maison”, released on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Parisian bar Le Motel.
