Norwegian synthpop artist Aurora just released her video for “Conqueror” yesterday and it is a jailbreak guide in case you find yourself ankles chained in a sandstone dungeon. You don’t need to go 127-Hours, just do exactly what Aurora does in “Conqueror” which is dance Sia-crazy, but showing your face and minus monochrome hair:

Like her buoyantly blown-out beat ballads, “Conqueror” is also up in the bright-eyed bombastic popsphere of synthplosions catching up with the orotund vocals of Aurora. She has the same festive magnitude of Coldplay, without outdoing optimism, and her voice emanates a contagious youthful zing. Aurora debuted her EP Running with the Wolves on May of last year and received widespread recognition in the blogosphere. “Conqueror” is from her upcoming album All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend, which will be out on March 11. She’s on tour now:
