It's definitely not Yanny. UK singer and guitarist Laurel has hypnotic intensity and has already mesmerised the British indie scene. Her sound lies between Florence + The Machine and Anna Calvi. Her debut album to be released via a Ninja Tune subsidiary in August is undoubtedly one of the hottest releases of the summer. In October, she's on her way to Ljubljana!
On the record, the next big name in British indie pop lays bare the bittersweet mania of real love. Her intimately expressive voice and vintage guitar warmth drape the piercing grace of Lana Del Rey and Florence + The Machine in dark nuances that would make Anna Calvi or Austra proud. Her October show might just be one of the last chances to catch her live before she explodes on a global level, so it's definitely not to be missed.
