Lovesick might feel raw and stripped at first, but you’ll soon find it to be richly potent and robust. It’s the latest gorgeous single from UK singer songwriter and producer Laurel, whose husky and deep crooning on the song reminds us of Florence Welch, but smokier, as if charbroiled in some deliciously fragrant oak. Lovesick’s peppery indie rock and baroque alt pop is earnest and honest. The gripping ballad more than convinces us we need to pre-order Laurel’s debut album DOGVIOLET when it arrives on August 24th via Counter Records. Stream/download Lovesick, here.

UK singer songwriter and producer Laurel is spoiling me these days with her music. Though it’s only been a few days since she gave us Maybe Baby, Laurel has already dropped another treasured new tune. Behold, Too Far, a windswept weathered, earthy crunching alt pop song on which I’m drawn endlessly to the gifted artist’s incredible voice per usual. Too Far is zestful and fiery, intense and dense. Suddenly, Laurel’s voice has taken on some Florence Welch character along with its signature honey wined charm. Come tomorrow, Laurel will be releasing her EP, Park. Prepare for a magical record. Pre-order Park from various outlets, here. Too Far is available as a single, here.

In exactly a week, UK singer songwriter and producer Laurel will be releasing her new EP Park on Counter Records. As if we weren’t already very excited for the release, she’s now given us a new taste from the EP. As always, Laurel enchants with her remarkable voice on Maybe Baby. It’s such a charming mix of honey and whiskey. Maybe Baby itself is a clever pastiche of spiky rock and waxy pop. The addictive single is out on all major outlets, here. Pre-order Park ahead of its November 18th release date, here.

UK singer songwriter and producer Laurel has revealed the first single from her new EP Park, and it’s a spellbinding alt folk song named Hurricane. Her breathy exquisite voice pulls us deep into this ruminative tune. Restless plucking strings and a rich atmosphere make Hurricane a supple driving, earthy alluring whirlwind on which Laurel reminds me of early Lykke Li but with the dusty magnetism of Lana Del Rey. Laurel’s new EP, which she self recorded, produced, and mixed on top of writing and performing, will be released on November 18th via Counter Records. Pre-order, here. A debut album is also in the works for early 2017. Watch the black and white video for Hurricane below.

British singer songwriter and producer Laurel’s latest song is a brandy wined alt folk bewitcher named after the gorgeous city of San Francisco. Her worn and smoky voice is the sooty seductive star of this beautiful gem, its huskiness much like an exceptional combination of Rachael Yamagata, Lana Del Rey, and Chan Marshall (of Cat Powers). San Francisco is Laurel’s second song of the year, a raw and engaging charcoal taste from the artist’s forthcoming debut album, due to arrive early next year.

Life is well worth living when we get to listen to Laurel’s stunning vocals, and listen plentifully I am to her new song Life Worth Living, her first in eight long months. The British singer songwriter delivers crisp and raw alt pop on the sweeping song, one which she wrote, produced, and mixed all herself in her East London bedroom studio. I have a feeling this is but the first of more magnificent new material we’ll be hearing from her this year.

Shadowchild and Ben Pearce’s collaborative track Nothing Ever Hurts, featuring electropop artist Laurel, is a heavenly union of musical talent, and it shows on how bewitchingly good the song is, reminding me of some of my favorite music from fellow UK producers Tourist and Jamie xx. If you missed my zealous share of the tune over a month ago, this new video affords you a second chance to get lured into Nothing Ever Hurts bittersweet, pumping brilliance. The wicked single is available now on iTunes.

Having been very fond of British songstress Laurel’s dark electronic pop music this past year, I was ecstatic when she returned with a new original last month, named Blue Blood. Sure enough, the song is a majestic masterpiece of overwhelmingly bewitching darkness. Not only that, but it’s a regal aria recorded with a 24 piece orchestra, resulting in a ridiculously beautiful affair of elegant strings paired with Laurel’s stunningly detailed vocal artistry. Her singing and the song’s potent power remind me of a blend of Lana Del Rey, Florence Welch, CocoRosie, and Aurora. We’re revisiting Blue Blood today, because the singer songwriter and producer has unveiled her music video for the amazing song. Blue Blood is available on iTunes.
