Following on from a huge couple of years, Laurel’s finally headed to Australia and New Zealand. Her debut album “Dogviolet” was released in August of last year to critical response with the Independent calling it a work of “spine-tingling, attention-grabbing chamber pop”, likened to Beach House, Florence & The Machine and CHVRCHES. Without glossing over imperfections, driven by her personal lyrics and stirring melodies, “Dogviolet” is the deeply personal exploration of the bittersweet feeling of love, leading with the single Lovesick.
Laurel has been busy trekking across Europe and the UK – performing alongside alt-pop duo Oh Wonder, MS MR, KT Tunstall, and John Newman. She’s completed two sold-out UK headline tours and appeared at some of England’s best-loved summer festivals including Secret Garden Party, Live At Leeds, Bestival Circus and Outlines Festival.
Now’s the time to get around her emotive vocals, playful guitar melodies and hypnotic pop as Laurel’s star looks set to rise!
