Ora The Molecule is a multinational Avant-garde pop music group, creating an unexpected sound between timeless nostalgia, smooth pop and retro electronica. This is a new sound to the Pop music landscape with emotional Calypso tinged melodies, still always irresistible danceable.
Inspired by Suzanne Vega, Kraftwerk, Fleetwood Mac, Mecano, and Norwegian singer Siri Nilsen.
Singer/songwriter Nora grew up between Spain, Italy and Norway. At age 18 she played in an all girl marimba trio performing in cable cars in Oslo. Shortly after she was invited to visit her biological father who is an American/Guatemalan living in Los Angeles. Suddenly she discovered a new part of her family, with her hispanic uncles involved in the LA Cholo culture and gangs, a culture in heavy contrast to what she had grown up with. The contrast of her family influenced her songwriting. She felt a need to express what she saw, started studying journalism and stayed in LA. She worked as a dishwasher and drove Uber to get by while trying to make it as a songwriter.
