Aurora Gory Alice is the first studio album by Letters to Cleo, released in 1993 on the record label CherryDisc Records and re-released in 1994 on Giant Records. The first single from the album was "I See", which got little exposure (although it was later used as the music that plays during the closing credits of the "Through a Lens Darkly" episode of MTV's animated series Daria). However, the second single, "Here & Now", received a lot of exposure when it was featured on the Melrose Place soundtrack a year later. The re-released version of the album contains different versions of "Rim Shak" and "Here & Now" than the original release. The difference between the two versions was that the second version had Scott Riebling playing bass, while the first release featured Brian Karp who originally played bass and wrote music for the band. A demo version of "I See" is available on the 1998 release Sister.
