Aurat (OH-RUT), meaning “Women” in Urdu, hails from Los Angeles, CA. The group features lead vocalist, Azeka, a Pakistani-American, Gil (programming/bass), Victor (drums), and Dolo (guitar/vocals). Aurat are truly unique to the LA scene. Taking cues from death rock and post-punk decadence, they bind their sound together into heart thumping industrial violence. Aurat doesn’t really have a specific genre they restrict themselves to. The sounds are living personalities.
