Such a beautiful EP by a beautiful artist. Seeing the transformation from the Blue Blood demo to To The Hills and then eventually to this makes me so proud. Thank you for this stunning collection of songs Laurel!
Favorite track: Too Far.
The Park EP was written, performed, recorded, produced and mixed by Laurel in her East London bedroom based studio. The first taster; 'Hurricane' demonstrates a maturity of sound beyond her 22 years, her breathy vocals sitting atop exquisite melodies with heartfelt, intimate delivery.
It follows the release of singles 'Life Worth Living' and 'San Francisco', which LAUREL released on her label Theia earlier in the year. The tracks saw her garner a wealth of support from BBC Radio 1, Beats1, Apple, Spotify, New York Times, The Guardian, i-D, DIY, The Line of Best Fit and many more, reaching Top 3 on Hype Machine's Popular Chart and surpassing half a million plays in under a month - her Spotify listener figures are in excess of 300k every month and growing.
Laurel has played numerous live shows over the summer and has recently announced her very first UK headline tour, to take place this November. Dates as follows:
With a debut album scheduled for early 2017, PARK EP further enhances Laurel’s position as a phenomenal new talent, mixing raw organic production with striking yet touching songwriting and powerfully enchanting vocals.
